Day 1

Enthusiastic Arrival

Welcome to San Jose, the bustling capital of Costa Rica. The active neighborhoods emanate from an underlying charm that encompasses history and culture from around the countryside. Mountains encircle the city and the Central Valley region. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to your hotel that offers you a view of the mountainsides from the comforts of the hotel garden. The adventure of San Jose is spread throughout the city, from the elegant colonial mansions that date back to the days of coffee barons, to the colorful murals that artistically display the every day lives of local Ticos, Costa Ricans. Locals flock to the national stadium at La Sabana Park. A serene lake reflects the ever-present mountains and verdant trees.

The fields are filled with children playing soccer. Their jovial cries carry through the park. The National Stadium of Costa Rica holds 35,000 people and was opened in 2011. When the national team plays, the roar of the crowd echoes through the valley skies. The Central Market provides a deeper look into the daily lives of the people and the cultures that have amassed in the capital over the years. The market was constructed in 1880 and houses over 200 shops and stalls that offer food, clothing, and traditional woodworks. The aroma of fresh tamales comes from Soda Tapia, an old corner café with 120 years of history.
