San José Attractions

San José is a gorgeous city which has a lot to offer. There is so much to explore in the highlands of Costa Rica.

Admire the famous Teatro Nacional, which is the city's national theatre. With its central location, it’s very accessible to visitors. The European influence on the building’s architecture is prominent and stunning to see up close, as well as from a distance.

There are tons of lovely bars and restaurants in the city, so you can refuel on delicious food in between sightseeing. The national dish of San José is gallo pinto, which is a scrumptious mix of fried rice and black beans.

San José boasts two wonderful national parks by the names of Chirripo National Park and Tortuguero National Park. They are both excellent day trip options!

For those who enjoy being active, rock climbing and paragliding might be activities to consider. For those looking to push things even further, you can sign yourself up to a tropical bungee! Adrenaline junkies will be in their element as they prepare to launch themselves into the depths of the rainforest! You can make your trip as adventurous as you like!
