San José (day or half day trip)
Even if the Costa Rican Capital does not shine with many outstanding objects of interest, nevertheless some goals are be worth. San José is the economical center of the country with an everyday and typical Latin American traffic chaos. The Avenida Dos and above all the Avenida Central with its lively pedestrian precinct is a must. Enjoy the easy-going tendency of the Latinos in the Mercado Central, a covered market hall from the nineteenth century - and their displays of vegetables, fruits, meat, spices, household articles...
It continues to go to the perhaps most beautiful building of the city, the Teatro Nacional - a original-faithful and reduced copy of the Paris Opera. The place directly beside it saves a further high point in the basement - the gold museum, or Museo de Oro. A very impressive collection of pre-colombian cult articles from gold. Further important museums are the Jade Museum as well as the National Museum, which demonstrate a good overview of the culture and the history of Costa Rica. BOOKING INQUIRY
