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.
Take a break from the city and head to Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz and Poas Volcano. Pre-Columbian Gold Museum and Jade Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Jose: Frogs Heaven (in Horquetas), Zoo Ave (in Alajuela) and Chocolatería Sibú (in San Isidro). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Museo Nacional De Costa Rica, explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Costarricense, trek along with Catarata Del Toro Adventures, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose journey planner.

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in January, and nighttime lows around 21°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
