SAN JOSÉ & THE CENTRAL VALLEY

A City Surrounded by Natural Beauty

San José stands as a testament to the strength of history and culture in Costa Rica. There are world-class museums, spectacular theaters, and a richness of history that is visible throughout the capital city. The area rests in the Central Valley where it is surrounded by mountains. The suburbs and nearby towns are nestled into mountainsides where people can look out over the city while living a quite rustic and relaxed life. 

The province boasts towns such as Puriscal and San Gerardo de Dota where you can feel like you’ve gotten away from it all while still remaining close to the largest city in the country.

Arts, Culture and Nightlife

In the capital, you will find architecture as diverse as its people and access to some of the most historic sites in the country by way of its multitude of museums and cultural outlets. You can catch an opera at the National Theater or marvel at the handiwork of Costa Rica’s ancient indigenous people at the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.

San José is a hotspot for outstanding dining where you can find world-class cuisine from all over the world. And if you are looking for a party that doesn’t stop, there is no shortage of dance clubs, bars, and casinos to spice up your nightlife while visiting.
