Description

The capital of Costa Rica, and home to most of her residents, San Jose is a unique little city on a plateau 3700 feet above sea level. San Jose enjoys a slightly cooler version of the Caribbean’s beautiful, hot climate.

all times - getting caught without it could mean getting thrown in jail. Lots of taxis are willing to take you pretty much anywhere in the city for a few American dollars but only the ones with a yellow triangular sticker on their door are registered. In spite of these shortcomings, there are lots of things to see and do in San Jose. Tours of the Poas and Irazu volcanoes are amazing outdoor adventures, and specialty museum exhibitions like gold work, Jade art and insects offer little known insights into these local specialties, to name just a few. Don’t be scared to travel to San Jose. Visit with a group, play smart, and you are sure to be safe and have a great time.
