San Jose Walking Tour: Food, History and Architecture

166 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.

Another of the many parks in downtown San Jose, this having the huge statue in the center representing the five nations of the Central American Federation in the 1800s. The park is well maintained, litter free and has huge trees. Just another example of city parks in the downtown area.

It's well located, close to the train station, the Legislative Assembly, and the National Library. There are a number of very interesting statues relating key moments in Costa Rican history. While there still is a pretty high chance of being approached by a homeless person asking for money, your are much more likely to be left alone here than at any other park in San José.

Very enjoyable to sit on a bench and read in the peace and quiet in the middle of the park. Many trees have their names and description on a plaque.

Like I said, it is a park with a statue commemorating the resistance and victory of CR and other Central American countries over the American mercenary, William Walker. One guy was selling toothbrushes, and another toothpaste - is there a dental sector near by?

It is not a glamourous park and we have seen more impressive ones but it was worth visiting, because these parks always tell a story about a city (here San Jose). Strolling around at daytime was nice, some art, some history, nice vegetation, some people (it was quiet that morning).
