The beating heart of Costa Rica, this beautiful city offers visitors much more than great coffee (although it is outstandingly good!). With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 4 things you absolutely must do whilst in San José…
- Take a stroll through La Sabana Metropolitan Park – considered the ‘lungs of San José’, La Sabana Metropolitan Park is a popular place for locals to congregate, relax and unwind – and we can certainly see why! Take a stroll through the park’s 0.28 square miles of greenery and you’ll soon forget you’re in the middle of a bustling city!
- Embark on a coffee tour! Costa Rica is famous for its coffee, so naturally no trip to this great country would be complete without sampling the local brew! Most tours start just outside of downtown San José and they’re great fun!
- Sample the local grub – food is the heart and soul of a city, and San José doesn’t disappoint! Our favourites include melt-in-the-mouth ceviche (fish stew), a hearty casado (rice, beans and meat) or a refreshing refrescos (freshly squeezed juice – top tip: ask for yours frozen for a delicious smoothie-style treat!).
- Visit the Pre-Colombian Gold Museum – housing Costa Rica’s first coin, gold artefacts dating back to 500AD and even a life sized gold warrior complete with gold ornaments, this incredible museum is one not to be missed!
But that’s not all! This wonderful city has a whole lot more to offer, so why not go and explore it for yourself!
