San Jose Highlights
Packed with office towers and shopping malls, men chattering on mobiles and girls in low-rise jeans, San Jose is more cosmopolitan than other Central American capitals. World-class restaurants offer delicacies alongside traditional, more humble Tico eateries. Museums, theaters and cinemas dot the cityscape and the nightlife is vibrant.
San Jose is also a good hub for visiting Costa Rica's national parks, beaches and rainforests.
