Costa Rica’s one true city lies in the Valle Central and is ringed by volcanic mountains and small colonial towns. This is where most Costa Ricans live, favouring the climate afforded by its elevation of 1,150m.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN SAN JOSE

IRAZU VOLCANO

From the peak of this gigantic volcano you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans on a clear day. A road takes you all the way to the lunar landscape of the summit where you can look into its four craters

CITY TOUR

The capital is a typical Central American concrete sprawl but inhabited with open, friendly and welcoming locals.  The local markets, pre-Columbian gold museum and the jade museum are well worth some time

POAS VOLCANO

The massive crater of this 2,700m volcano is filled with a bright blue sulphurous lake and is easily accessible, with transport taking you virtually to the top.
