San José is a beautiful city with lots to do and explore in the highlands of Costa Rica. Come and be surrounded by the influence of European culture during your visit.

See the perfect sight of elegance through the renowned Teatro Nacional, the city's national theatre. It is centrally located and easy to get to. You can easily see the European influence of the architecture of the building, both on the outside and inside. This is a very popular place for visitors to the city.

There are a plethora of restaurants and bars in the city, ready to whet your appetite. Be sure to experience San José's national dish gallo pinto, a tasty mixture of fried rice and black beans.

For a mini adventure on your holiday, why not take a trip to Chirripo National Park. This rewarding trek will lead you to the highest peak. See incredible breathtaking views of the diverse landscape of flora and fauna. Take advantage of the overnight stay during your hike with a wonderful sunrise view to start your day. Be able to boast seeing both the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean at the same time - there most likely won't be another chance to!

There are many fun activities to try out once you're here. Have an active time rock climbing and paragliding. If that is not enough for you… have a truly once in a lifetime and exhilarating experience by doing a tropical bungee! Jump right into the depths of the rainforest and have a unique experience.

For post adrenaline fun, come and visit La Fortuna Waterfall at La Fortuna de San Carlos. Here you can swim up close to the cascading waterfall if you wish and enjoy exploring the area.
