San Jose Costa Rica (SJO) San Jose City
San Jose Costa Rica (SJO)
San Jose, Costa Rica is the one major city in the country with a large variety of restaurants, many museums and art galleries, the nightlife scene and an ongoing line up of theatre, concerts and other cultural events that until recently were only available in the city. Nestled high in the Costa Rica Central Valley between the green volcanic mountain ranges, the metropolitan city of more than 1 million people is surrounded by suburbs that cling to the gentle foothills.
San Jose Costa Rica was built on the profits of the coffee export business so between the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) and the downtown area, you will pass working coffee farms. The coffee grows so well in this area because San Jose, at 1,125 m (3,690 ft.) above sea level, enjoys spring like conditions year round. Once you have enjoyed all the city of San Jose, Costa Rica as to offer, you can be climbing a volcano, go white-water rafting or stroll thru a butterfly garden – just to name a few activities – within a one to two hour drive.
