To really get a feel for San Jose, visit one of its many cultural destinations. Aspiring artists should visit the collections at the Museum of Costa Rican Art.
Spend a few hours with fellow sports fans at Costa Rica National Stadium, cheering on local legends, the Costa Rica national football team.

To really get to know this fascinating part of the world, think about making a reservation close by in one of the area’s many accommodation options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the Hotel Luisiana, Santa Ana, the Barcelo San Jose Palacio, and the popular Adventure Inn, San Antonio de Belen.
