SAN JOSÉ DE COSTA RICA

The actual capital city of Costa Rica, founded in 1736, is the arriving spot for most international tourists coming to discover our marvelous land.

San José de Costa Rica, one of the safest cities in Latin America, may not look as appealing as other spots at first hand. However, it’s actually a place teemed with history, culture, and excellent gastronomy.

San José presents a wide variety of Museums, with very different approaches to culture and history: the Jade Museum, the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, the National Museum, the Museum of Costa Rican Art, and the Natural Science Museum, to name a few.

The city also offers exquisite architecture and infrastructure, in the form of theatres, auditoriums, parks, squares, markets, and outdoor spaces. Don’t miss the National Theatre, the Metropolitan and the Alajuela cathedrals, the Plaza de la Cultura, the La Sabana Metropolitan Park, the National Stadium, the Central Park, and the Central Market, a place filled with tiny shops to buy everything from local coffee to souvenirs.

Lastly, San José offers a wide array of gastronomic options for every budget and taste. There are hundreds of places to enjoy great coffee, seafood, local beer brews, regional cuisine, and stylish dishes.

Costa Rica is filled with nature-related places to discover, and we, better than anyone, know that. Still, we recommend staying a couple of nights in our capital city of San José. You will certainly not regret it.
