Mini Guide to San Jose

Tell me About San Jose?
The capital of Costa Rica, San Jose is unsurprisingly the largest in this central American country and has a population of over 350,000 residents in the city itself, although the metropolitan area stretches way beyond this and it is estimated that a third of Costa Rica's entire population call this home. Being a thriving city, naturally it has a University, Santo Tomas that was the first in Costa Rica and first opened its doors in 1843. The most popular dish of Costa Rica is 'gallo pinto' which consists of fried rice and beans. Getting around San Jose is easy with a rental car as the highway network is well established, however the bus service, train and ample taxi's offer a viable alternative.

San Jose Central

How to Get There?
Getting to San Jose is simple and last year the airport received in excess of 3 million passengers (6 times that of the next largest airport in Costa Rica, Liberia International Airport). Major international airlines serve the airport from all over the globe including America, Europe and Asia. Upon arrival, car rental at San Jose International Airport can be collected from the various rental desks where all leading suppliers can be found.
