San Jose City Travel Tips
Best Souvenir Shopping Stop: Sarchi
If you happen to choose the excursion that takes you to the little town of Sarchi in Alajuela, you’ll find plenty of souvenirs to take home with you. The town is known for its intricate arts and crafts and sells beautiful wood carvings.
Best Place to Watch a Waterfall: Los Chorros Waterfall Park
Los Chorros Waterfall Park is only 25 minutes from the international airport and about 45 minutes from downtown San José. The guard to the entrance doesn’t speak English, so bring cash to tip him for watching your car while you’re inside exploring all the amazing sights of this beautiful park.
Best Spot for Sweets: La Sorbetera
Got a sweet tooth? Stop by La Sorbetera de Lolo Mora for an indulgent dessert that’ll cure your cravings in an instant. The humble little counter in the mercado central has been serving only vanilla flavored ice cream in San Jose for more than a century. But there's nothing boring about La Sorbetera's vanilla. Like Costa Rica, the ice cream flavor is pure and sweet and is sure to keep you coming back for more.
