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.
Head to Multiplaza and Central Market (Mercado Central)for some retail therapy. Do some cultural sightseeing at National Museum (Museo Nacional) and Jade Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: Chocolatería Sibú (in San Isidro), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Catarata Del Toro Adventures, take in the spiritual surroundings of Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles), admire nature's wide array of creatures at Zoo Ave, and take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Namu.

To find other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, use the San Jose custom trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In January in San Jose, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
