San José on Your Own
The thriving city of San José is the most important economic, political and social center of the Costa Rican territory. Enjoy time on your own to explore its treasures. Popular sightseeing attractions include the National Theater of Costa Rica, San Jose's most treasured building. This neoclassical National Theater, built in 1897, is found on the southern corner of the Plaza de la Cultura. The National Museum of Costa Rica is housed in the old Bellavista Fort, and its galleries showcase Costa Rican history. Stroll the flora-filled Metropolitan Park at La Sabana; view the beautiful National Stadium, home to important cultural and sporting activities; and admire San José's metropolitan cathedral, known for its intricate stained-glass windows. A walk along Paseo Colón, downtown's central thoroughfare, is an opportunity to see the capital's most architecturally interesting buildings.

What you see along the way:
Gaze out the motorcoach window as you travel from port to San José on a 1.5-hour journey through emerald valleys, rural landscapes and the capital city's urban and residential districts, passing many architectural landmarks as you absorb the lifestyle of its local people.

Lunch:
Savor authentic regional cuisine and perfectly brewed Costa Rican coffee during lunch on your own in one of San José's charming local restaurants and cafes or sample a tamal, cornmeal and garlic wrapped in a banana leaf, from a friendly street vendor. Top it all off with decadent Costa Rican chocolate treats.
