San Jose Walking Tour: Food, History and Architecture

171 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.

If you re in San Jose and want a first experience about the forests in Costa Rica , this is a good and easy option. I visit that park from Quebrada Gonzalez sector. This sector has two trails, is very easy and you ll enjoy it. Dont expect to see many animals but you can walk through the nature. If you have a car, it will be easy for you but the bus is more challenging. You can take the bus from the Caribbean station to Guapiles ( 1530 colones) and then the only option is to wait outside the park untill one bus come. So, go prepared to wait about 20 - 40 minuites or more. There are many tours for that park but in my opinion keep your money for another park.

The ariel tram was excellent, 1 hour 10 mins sliently floating above the canopy. We have taken canopy tours previously but this was the highest and longest. A guide accompanies you and the carriage is suitable for everybody and has proper seats. We stayed 2 nights in the lodge in the park and enjoyed the early morning and evening walks, our guide Leo was very experienced and knowledgeable.The walk is easy on a made path. We saw tapir, a sloth,a tarantula, snakes and lots of frogs.There are also butterfly, snake and frog exhibits which were good. There is a restaurant where the staff where friendly and helpful. There is zip lining but we didn't try it.

Very nice! Rode through the rainforest in a covered gondola. Saw/heard a couple animals but this is more of a botanical adventure. Guide was very informative and friendly. About an hour from San Jose' as I recall and a beautiful drive between the two points.

I was generally not a fan of zip lining prior to my visit to this park. But these guys are simply the BEST. The safety precautions are top notch, the lines have brakes that automatically stop you (so folks like me with shoulder issues can do it pain-free), and the guides are super friendly. The park is gorgeous and full of life. On our week long trip this was the highlight!

There are two easy-to-hike trails, one a 1 km and another at about 2.5 km with labeled trees and other plants, overlooks, streams and when not raining maybe some birds! :-) I did see a wet sloth! :-)
