San Jose

— 4 nights
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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Museo Nacional De Costa Rica and Pre-Columbian Gold Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz and River Rafting & Tubing. Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles (in Cartago). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, shop like a local with Multiplaza, browse the exhibits of Galeria Namu, and stop by Chieton Moren.
