San Jose Vacation Packages

It is an area of Central Valley that approximately 340,000 people reside in.

From here, it's roughly 9 miles to the south to Tarbaca and 11 miles to the southwest to Palmichal.

Spirogyra Butterfly Garden and Amusement Park San Jose are lovely places to take some quality time with your kids. ARA Project and the Children's Museum are also worth a visit if you're looking for more ways to keep little ones busy.

You'll see a range of beautiful creatures at the Zoo Ave and the Simon Bolivar Zoo. Combined with the INBio Park, you are certain to have an incredible zoological encounter.

When the weather is fine, pack some lunch and head out to one of the area's leafy green spaces, such as Parque Nacional or Central Park. Peace Park and Sabana Park are two more excellent places to while away a lazy day and catch up on some reading.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the varied exhibition spaces in the area. Meander through the hallways as you check out the varied collections at the Museum of Costa Rican Art and the Gold Museum. Equally rewarding are the National Center of Art and Culture and the Jade Museum.

Observe the variety of specimens that are on show while you walk around the overflowing halls of the La Salle Natural Science Museum.

Complex exhibits and objects await art lovers at the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design.

The area's spiritual side can be experienced at San Jose Cathedral and Alajuela Cathedral. If you want to look at some more religious sites, keep your eyes peeled for tours at Church of Puriscal and Templo de Música.

Good public squares provide a space for a city's inhabitants to meet and take in the sunshine. You'll see an eclectic mix of people at Plaza de la Democracia and Plaza de la Cultura. Make sure you take a walk around and experience everything they have to offer.

As you wander around, you will find there are some significant monuments and memorials in San Jose. If you're interested in delving into the region's history, stop in at El Fortín or Teatro Melico Salazar. If you want to continue on your journey down memory lane, you could also take a look at Asamblea Legislativa and Edificio Metálico.

Vacationers who have an interest in places of higher learning should arrange a visit to the Universidad Nacional and the University of Costa Rica. Every campus has its own interesting history and is an integral part of the local scene.

You'll soon discover why this area has a reputation as a shopping hub. Purchase a new outfit, grab a bite to eat or just enjoy the atmosphere at San Pedro Mall and Plaza Real Cariari. Multiplaza Mall Escazu and Multiplaza del Este Mall are also a lot of fun to visit.

There are a selection of fine performing arts houses here. Among its brightest stars is the National Theater. After the concert, have supper in one of the close-by restaurants or bars and enjoy the regional cuisine.

Many people have a terrific time at the Cariari Country Club. Colinas del Poas is also worth considering.
