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 Poas Volcano and Irazu Volcano National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: El Toledo Coffee Tour (in Atenas), El Silencio de Los Angeles Cloud Forest Reserve (in San Ramon) and Frogs Heaven (in Horquetas). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic scenery at Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz, trek along with Catarata Del Toro Adventures, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and examine the collection at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.
