San Jose
A trip to San Jose, the capital, commercial center, and cultural hub of Costa Rica, gives you a chance to experience the lively atmosphere and rich cultural past of this vibrant country.
Get out of town with these interesting San Jose side-trips: Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and Jaco (Zipline, Adrenaline & Extreme Tours, & more). Spend the 25th (Wed) exploring ancient history at Guayabo National Park and Monument. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Teatro Nacional Costa Rica, take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Namu, examine the collection at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, and walk around Parque La Sabana.

For maps, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our San Jose trip planner .

If you are flying in from Hungary, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In December, daytime highs in San Jose are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
