The best things to do in San Jose

Are you preparing your list of stuff to do in San Jose? Well, let's start with its vast architectural and cultural heritage. Places to visit in San Jose include monuments, theaters, museums, parks, and more. The list of theaters alone is quite long. The Variety Theatre, the National Theatre of Costa Rica, and the Melico Salazar Theater are just some examples of the city's theaters and are among the best San Jose attractions. 

Naturally, parks are the other main attractions in San Jose. One of the main things to see in San Jose is La Sabana Metropolitan Park, which is part of the historical heritage of Costa Rica. It has a large lake, trees of various species, and spots for hiking, walking, and bird watching. If you like being in contact with nature, then spending a day in this park is one of the best things to do in San José. More San Jose activities include visiting the traditional markets. At these markets you can find fresh fruit, roasted and unroasted coffee, handmade ceramics, handmade blankets and table runners, and local clothing. 

Of course, no list of the best things to do in San Jose would be complete without mentioning the landscape which has made Costa Rica famous. Not far from the city's edges you can find unspoiled wilderness beaches, tropical rainforests, and smoldering volcanoes. You can learn about more places to see in San Jose on minube.
