Small but fun city of San Jose
San Jose is the main city of Costa Rica, and the name of one of the 7 provinces. It is located in the center of the country in the Central Valley. The city is full of surprises, and in most weekends all year round there are cultural activities going on. Visiting downtown is a must, since it is small and it gives the complete cultural experience with street musicians and the popular Central Market.
Although it is a small city, its night life and gastronomic options makes it a nice place to be. One interestingthing about San Jose is that it offers many options for vegetarians and vegans, including a vegan pub and bar.
There are some museums that are worth visiting, such as the Jade Museum, the Gold Museum and the National Museum, among others. Finally, it is also a place from which many one day tours can be taken; its surrounding areas are very beautiful and interesting.
