San Jose has a great many things to see and do. You’ll obviously want to tick off the top attractions, but you also won’t want to miss the nearby sandy shores that Costa Rica is known for. Our advice is to go for something that will take you from city jaunts to longer road trips, like a standard vehicle. Collect your shiny set of wheels from San Jose Airport (SJO-Juan Santamaria Intl.), drive the 10 miles to the downtown area, and explore to your heart’s content. When you’ve finished, venture out of the city’s boundaries and spend time in nature. Just remember to send us some postcards along the way.
