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.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, stop by Chieton Moren, and explore the world behind art at Precolumbian Gold Museum.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the San Jose travel planner.

In December, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
