Day 1

San Jose – Arrive in the Charm of Costa Rica with the Day at Leisure

San Jose bustles with life at the center of the contemporary shopping malls and spreads along the ridges of Costa Rica’s Central Valley. The concrete Plaza de la Cultura at the heart of downtown represents life in the big city. Jugglers perform, children enjoy refreshing ice cream, and teenagers gossip along the fringes against the gentle sounds of the trickling fountain. Your flight lands at Juan Santamaria International Airport. Your private transfer greets you upon arrival, and your unforgettable exploration of Costa Rica begins.

The Jade Museum reopened in 2014 with the world’s largest collection of American jade. The revitalized museum encompasses five floors which display six exhibits, presenting nearly 7,000 pieces. The stunning green hues reflect in the soft light of the gallery and depict fertility goddesses, shamans, and frogs. Historic ceramics highlight distinctive unique techniques and visible signs of Maya influence. Your private driver leads you to the comforts of your elegant hotel on the outskirts of San Jose. The scent of jasmine emanates from the budding flowers on the neighboring coffee plantation. The serene ambiance overtakes you as you take in the view of the rolling verdant hills surrounding the heart of the Central Valley.  Consider learning more about our Costa Rica travel agents whom we partner with who can help you craft the Costa Rica itinerary of your dreams.
