Next, get around the city like a local by taking public transportation to visit the home of a legendary Costa Rican mask maker. Step inside the building where the masks have been produced for three generations by the same family. You'll meet the artisan and hear the stories and secrets behind this creative craft, that plays a vital part in Costa Rican celebrations, holidays and masquerades.
The final stop on your San Jose walking tour is a century-old adobe restaurant, where a delicious traditional local lunch is served. Discover the flavors of authentic Costa Rican cuisine, and experience a typical meal enjoyed by the city's local people. After lunch, enjoy an ice cream snack before ending the tour at the Costa Rica National Theatre.
We had an absolute blast. Carlos, our guide, knew all about San Jose and Costa Rica in depth. He was also just plain fun. Very flexible tour. Highly recommend
An excellent tour around San Jose which offers a view on the city from both a tourist's and a local's perspective. The tour includes insights on Costa Rican history, philosophy of life, and is done in a very interactive and friendly way.
The highlights include walking through the city centre (read what the notes on graffiti actually say, many are quite witty!:)), visiting a local market (try to buy at least 1-2 pieces of each unknown fruit you meet, it's a great way to discover new tastes!), and visiting the festival mask maker.
This tour is an excellent way to see San Jose in its full beauty and to learn more about Costa Rican history and people. Highly recommended!
