On your next trip to Costa Rica’s capital make sure to consider our San Jose car hire services as your main mode of transportation. The capital is set on a rather high plateau and it is surrounded by lush green mountains and valleys. It is by far the country’s largest city with around half of the whole country’s population residing there.
The city is served by the San Jose Airport which is situated seventeen kilometers away from the city center and is connected via bus routes and taxis but your best choice by far would be to employ our San Jose car rental services. This way you can have a car ready for you at the airport so that as soon as you land you can start driving towards your destination.
Once you’re in the city there are quite a few sights and attractions that you can grace with your presence such as the Gold Museum – Museo Oro Precolombino – which contains over one thousand six hundred pieces of Pre-Columbian gold artifacts which date from 500 AD to 1500 AD. You will be given all the relevant information in regards to the processing and making of the gold pieces as well as to their social, cultural and religious meanings.
In a similar vein there’s the Jade Museum – Museo del Jade – which features the largest collection of precolombian era jade in the Americas. The museum goes into detail as to how jade was worked in the precolombian era thus offering a unique type of insight into the daily life of the people from that era.
The National Museum offers an interesting butterfly garden as well as a large collection of stone spheres from the Diquis Valley located near the Pacific Ocean. The Museum is housed in what used to be a fort which was last used for its initial purpose during the 1948 revolution.
These are of course only a couple of the things that you can see and do while in Costa Rica’s capital and in order to see more of it make sure to employ our San Jose car hire services.
