Situated at the heart of the country, San Jose is the only large city you will find in Costa Rica. Over the years this city has suffered several times from earthquakes. Nestled in a volcanic mountain range, the geography of the city’s location has led to the inevitable shaking every so often in the earthquakes.
A Central American city with a low crime rate, San Jose is well organised and run and has a thriving nightlife. Depending upon your preference, you might like to spend the evening at a local cafÃ©, or simply taking in the atmosphere. The city is relatively quiet – making it a perfect solution if you want to go somewhere to relax and unwind a little. A number of international flights come into the Costa Rica via San Jose, so you can reach the city easily and enjoy your time there.
