San Jose Costa Rica

Located in the heart of Costa Rica, San Jose is one of the most diverse provinces in the country due to its dense urban capital city of the same name. Boasting a pleasant and mild climate, San Jose is one of the most populated regions of the country and welcomes visitors regularly. Its central location allows for direct access to the most popular attractions throughout the country. In addition, because of the city of San Jose, getting around is very easy because many of the roads are paved unlike some less-developed areas along the coastline and in densely forested areas.

San Jose is home to dense culture and history, exquisite architecture, bustling nightlife and friendly locals. Considered to be both a traditional Central American city and cosmopolitan urban center, San Jose provides a wonderful array of activities and attractions. Because San Jose is the cultural hub of the country, there are plenty of museums, art galleries, parks and dining options for visitors to choose form. Although the city is fairly modern in terms of Latin American cities, as buildings are rarely older than 100 years, there are still plenty of World War II era buildings.

Some of the best attractions in San Jose include Central Park, Morazan Park, Spanish Park, National Park, Democracy Plaza and the Jade Museum. The Jade Museum is one of the country’s finest and home to the largest collection of American jade in the world. Arranged by cultural regions, exhibits include gold pieces, stonework and ceramics.
