San Jose, the capital and largest city in Costa Rica, sits in the central region of the country in the midst of a valley surrounded by green mountains and volcanoes. It is the political, economic and cultural centre of the country, and has a vibrant atmosphere with plenty of museums, art galleries, theatres and restaurants to explore. One of the most popular attractions is the National Theatre of Costa Rica, an example of neoclassical architecture and home to regular performances of opera, dance and other cultural events that add some traditional artistic flair to San Jose holidays. As well as its other landmarks,
like the Plaza de la Cultura and the National Museum of Costa Rica, San Jose is also known for its beautiful parks and gardens. The Metropolitan Park La Sabana is particularly popular as it spans a large area that offers plenty of open space for activities like jogging, biking and picnicking. San Jose holidays are the perfect balance of metropolitan busyness and urban wildlife, and the city is an excellent base from which to go on to explore the rest of Costa Rica.
