San Jose

Costa Rica’s capital promises culture and cuisine

The vibrant city of San Jose offers an enticing mix of history and buzzing contemporary culture. But the capital of Costa Rica adds up to more than architecture, art galleries, excellent restaurants and boutique hotels. It is also a gateway to explore the delights of the rest of the country, with its vast expanses of pristine rainforest and superb Caribbean and Pacific coastlines.

It is all too easy to fall in love with San Jose from your very first stroll around its streets, taking in its friendly, exotic markets and endless gems of colonial, Art Deco and Victorian architecture. The Renaissance-style Catedral Metropolitana, the lavish National Museum and the Plaza de la Cultura are not to be missed on your San Jose holiday. Likewise the city’s Gold and Jade Museums, which boast incredible collections of pre-Columbian jewellery, the largest in the world.

The city’s culinary reputation is peerless for local delicacies and cosmopolitan treats. Local A&K experts can recommend the best restaurants, bars, sights and sounds. And in the Casa Turire and the Grano de Oro we have handpicked two of the city’s hottest boutique hotels for your stay in San Jose.
