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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, look for gifts at Chieton Moren, and examine the collection at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.

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

In December, daytime highs in San Jose are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
