San Jose – Adventure Arrives
Welcome to San Jose, a unique and vibrant city in a country known for its paradisiacal biodiversity. The bustling streets of the city fill with Josefinos--residents of San Jose--and music, astounding murals and museums packed with layers of gold. A private transfer greets you at the airport and escorts you to a gorgeous hotel located in the heart of the relaxed city known for its fast-pace in contrast to the surrounding country. The hotel is located on a serene shady street and offers you a quiet oasis close to the pulsing beat of the capital.
The halls are decorated with lush tropical flowers that emanate a sweet and exotic aroma. The central market echoes with life at all times of the day. The bright lights of the city illuminate the precious landscapes to come. The scent of exotic spices and coffee beans drift through the aisles of the circular marketplace. Vendors showcase bright fruits reminding you of the tropical setting outside of San Jose with giant watermelons standing on tables or sweet mangos shining with yellow and green rinds. The delicious fruits represent nature’s abundance in Costa Rica, fed by the tropical climate, volcanic soils, and large following of organic cultivation.
