 San José: The Cultural Hub of Costa Rica

Your Costa Rican adventure begins in the vibrant capital of San José. Often overlooked by traveler's eager to reach the beaches and rainforests, San José is a city rich in culture and history, offering a perfect introduction to the country.

Start your exploration at the Teatro Nacional, a stunning 19th-century building that stands as a testament to Costa Rica’s cultural heritage. The theatre’s opulent interiors and intricate architecture will leave you in awe. You may even be lucky enough to catch a performance!

Next, wander through the historic Barrio Amón, a charming neighbourhood filled with well-preserved colonial buildings. Each street has its own unique character, and you can enjoy stopping at local cafes and art galleries. The area’s vibrant street art will add a contemporary touch to the historical setting.

A visit to the Museo de Oro Precolombino will be a journey through time, showcasing Costa Rica’s rich pre-Columbian history. The collection of gold artefacts is impressive and offers a fascinating insight into the country’s indigenous cultures.

San José is also a great base for day trips to nearby attractions. Take a short trip to a nearby coffee plantation, where you can learn about the coffee-making process and enjoy some of the best coffee you will have ever tasted. The visit will offer a wonderful glimpse into one of Costa Rica’s most important industries.
