Explore Costa Rica’s national urban treasures with a half-day sightseeing tour of San Jose. Accompanied by an expert local guide, stop by the University of Costa Rica and the beautiful, tree-lined pathways of Sabana Park for a glimpse into daily life in the capital city.
You will visit the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, which houses an amazing collection of stone, jade and gold artifacts from around Central America. The museum was built within a repurposed military fort, symbolizing Costa Rica’s modern tradition of peace.
Admire one of the country’s architectural gems, the opulent National Theater. Reminiscent of the grand opera houses of Europe, the ornate structure dates back more than a century and is a source of national pride.
Please note: The National Theater is closed on Sundays, and museums are shuttered on Mondays.
