San Jose in Costa Rica is many things to many people. Looming skyscrapers, glitzy malls, busy businessmen and a fast-paced lifestyle is perhaps the more obvious appearance to those visiting on work or for short durations. But San Jose can also be the nature lover’s paradise as it offers an ideal gateway to Costa Rica’s many beaches, rainforests, volcanoes and national parks.

A visit to the Tortuguero National Park allows for scenic boat rides through dense rainforests and banana plantations to one of the few remaining nesting sites of the endangered green turtle. To see the many sides of Costa Rican culture, take a full-day tour of some of San Jose’s most interesting sites – the still-active Poas Volcano, the unique Doka Coffee Estate and the old city of Sarchi.

Alternatively, embark on a visit to Irazu Volcano, Orosi Valley, and Lankester and discover San Jose’s highest volcano, expansive botanical gardens and a colorful old city, all within a day. Manuel Antonia National Park and Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs are the other popular day-long guided tours popular among tourists and locals alike. So the next time you plan a visit to this bustling Central American city, be sure to check out its quiet and enchanting side too!
