Costa Rica tours often start in San Jose because the city encompasses the culture of Costa Rica. The colors are painted onto the walls of hidden neighborhoods. Vibrant murals depict the active life of the local people. Mountains wrap around the city and bring nature’s scale to the expansive streets and skyline. Local boys play soccer in Central Park. Seasoned men lounge on park benches and read books in the passing sunlight. A private transfer meets you at the airport and escorts you to your luxurious hotel. Your accommodation boasts secluded gardens and a vibrant pool that offers a view to the rising mountain panorama. In the evening you can taste the locally grown flavors of Costa Rica at Doris Metropolitan. The cattle are fed pineapple and the corvina seafood dish is succulent with a side sauce of zesty lemon yogurt.
