General Information

San José, the capital of Costa Rica, is the largest and most important city of the country. It is the seat of the national government, the focal point of political and economic activity, and the major transportation hub for the Central American nation. The city is heavily influenced by European civilization. Following the discovery of the New World by Columbus, privileged Spaniards seeking adventure and further fortune emigrated to the country. During the 19th and 20th century, the country became a major exporter of coffee beans to Europe, which led to a massive influx of capital into the country with the purpose of expanding and improving infrastructure to facilitate export. Europeans brought with them their knowledge of architecture, their culture, and of course the Spanish language. This cultural influence is reflected in the theaters, museums, houses, and language of the city.  

San José, considered by some locals an unwanted urban eyesore in midst of the countries beautiful rural landscape, is by no means a dull city. While walking around town, you will stumble upon colorful markets bustling with life, street vendors peddling their goods, and a great variety of interesting museums. Of these, the most visited are the Museo de Oro Precolombino and the Museo del Jade. The former features a collection of around 2000 pieces of shiny pre-Colombian gold, whereas the latter boasts the largest collection of jade stone in the Americas. One of the finest architectural buildings in the city is the National Theater; built in 1897, it displays an exquisite interior with lavish furnishings and hosts numerous high quality performances.

A few minutes outside of the city proper, but still within the metropolitan area of San José, you will find the town of San Pedro. It is famous for its night-life and is a favorite spot for students and locals to spend a night out on a weekend. A strip of student bars, local bars, and live music will keep you going through the night. Ticos, as locals are called, have a love for music, especially jazz, blues, rock and roll, and peñas, slow, acoustic folk songs from the Andean region

Take advantage of your car rental San Jose

With San José as your base, you will be able to enjoy the multitude of beautiful destinations within Costa Rica. Take your San Jose car hire to Chirripó National Park, 30 miles from the city center, which features thermal springs, sparse trees and grasslands and a unique gamut of highland wildlife. Rocky patches pepper the otherwise desolate hills and give way to a sequence of glacial lakes which earned the park its name: Chirripó means ‘eternal waters’. The park is also the site of the tallest peak in the country, namely Cerro Chirripó, at 3820 meters above sea level, the mist-shrouded mountain offers challenging hiking trails with marvelous panoramic views as your reward.

Costa Rica also contains numerous volcanic mountains, some of which still rumble and spew forth hot ash and smoke. The Arenal Volcano National Park offers visitors the chance to experience first-hand the destructive power of the sleeping giants. These bizarre, lava-scarred landscapes with lichen-smeared volcanic badlands are contrasted by lush rainforest and singing birds. The remnants of the massive lava flow created by the 1968 eruption of the volcano provide impressive views of Lake Arenal and the volcano itself.
