San Jose Walking Tour: Food, History and Architecture

170 reviews
Visit a pair of traditional markets in San Jose on a guided walking tour that explores local flavors, culture, and history. From a fresh cup of Costa Rican coffee to tropical fruits, you’ll sample the best of what’s in season here. It’s a great chance to see a side of the city that many visitors overlook, and walking around with a local guide means an insider perspective on life in San Jose.

The name of the museum can be misleading as it is so much more than just jade. There are thousands and thousands of historic artifacts. The technology and aesthetic of the museum is top notch. Would recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Enjoyed viewing and learning the history of Jade in the Americas. I was surprised at this phenomenon. Excellent, very setting modern and excellent lighting. Well done.

Three of us visited on a Saturday afternoon. Place was quiet. Four floors of exhibits. A bit pricey for a museum, non CRs pay more. Exhibits on Jade and pottery and on the pre-Spanish cultures. It didn’t wow us but good to learn of CR’s history.
