While San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica is not the prettiest city in the world it does have some cultural value to offer. When visiting San Jose you will be taken on a bus tour with a bilingual guide to the main points of interest. The main places to visit are the National Theater, the Central Cathedral, the Central Market, the Supreme Court, the University of Costa Rica, museums and historic sites.
San Jose has currently been undergoing a renaissance, with modern high rise buildings emerging, a new national stadium and a new Chinatown section built. Yet it still retains much of its past multicultural heritage in restored elegant old buildings, historic statues and parks. The walking city tour is an intimate and authentic perspective of the capital city and contemporary Costa Rica.
