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.
Museo Nacional De Costa Rica and Jade Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles and Metropolitan Church (Catedral Metropolitana). Change things up with a short trip to Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz in Vara Blanca (about 1h 20 min away). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, look for gifts at Chieton Moren, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and view the masterpieces at Galeria Namu.
