San Jose in Costa Rica has Diversity of Places and Activities to Enjoy

So much more than just the typical entryway to Costa Rica, San Jose is a unique destination in its own right. Each Visitor has to experience the buzzing nightlife, excellent coffee, intriguing museums, and can’t-miss day trips.

Wander through historic buildings-turned-art galleries in Barrio Amon. Taste your way through the culinary neighborhood of Barrio Escalante. Shop at the farmers market and mingle with the locals as they relax in Parque La Sabana.

Grab a Cup of Costa Rican Coffee

Perk up for your day around San Jose with a cup of Costa Rica’s finest coffee. There is no shortage of specialty coffee houses around the city, so we suggest you start here, then make your way to one of the coffee plantations nearby to visit the source of your preferred roast.

Arenal Volcano 

One really can’t visit San Jose without day-tripping to Arenal Volcano just a short drive northwest of the city. Walk on the slopes of the scenic volcano and zipline through the jungle.

Walk through the treetops on swaying bridges as your naturalist guide unveils the secrets of this awe-inspiring landscape. Later, soak in a volcano-heated pool.

La Paz Waterfall Gardens 

If you’re headed to Arenal Volcano, we recommend adding on a visit to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens home to the most famous waterfalls in Costa Rica and an animal sanctuary with more than 100 species of wildlife. 

National Theater of Costa Rica

Back in town, don’t miss the highly regarded National Theater of Costa Rica, where you will notice the statues of the 17th-century Spanish dramatist Calderon de la Barca and Ludwig van Beethoven before venturing inside the revered, neoclassical building.

 National Museum of Costa Rica

Head inside to learn the story of Costa Rica from pre-Columbian times to present day. Marvel at art and artifacts, pottery, jade and gold pieces, musical instruments, and more.
