The San Jose City Tour on board of the VIP City Bus is an excellent opportunity to see San José city from a different perspective. More than a big bustling town, San Jose is the base of the social and economic life of the country.
With a small living population, the city is crossed by over a million and a half people every day, and it is worth it to experience the museums, iconic monuments, and buildings, taste its food and learned about its historical events.
A certified tour guide specialized in the city life and traditions will be explaining to you about the different areas you are passing by as well as a live musician will keep you entertained with typical music while on board.
The bus also comes with WIFI so that you can post in your social network your video and pictures right away.
You will start at the Costa Rican Art Museum, where your guide will tell you the story of Costa Rica at the old diplomatic hall of the ancient airport (Now turned into the museum) where a gorgeous stucco sculptured wall will give you all the details.
Afterward enjoy a short stroll by La Sabana Park, a place where Costa Rican families and sports players gather on the weekends and where you will also see the new soccer stadium.
You will pass by some of the oldest neighborhoods, see beautiful houses of ambassadors and local politicians, and visit a unique jewelry shop.
After, your bus will take you to the heart of the city, taking a walk by the Central Avenue boulevard and into the fantastic Central Market, an authentic mosaic of products that go from fresh fish and fruits to medicinal herbs and magical powders.
You will also have a chance to see the National Theater building and entrance hall, the gold museum and its extraordinary collection of Pre-Columbian figures.
From the central part of the city, you will hop back on the bus to see some of the highlights of town: The entrance to our China town, the Democracy Plaza, the Congress building, the National Museum and the National Park where the most important monument to the Costa Rican history is situated.
You will see also, the old train station, the national library and emblematic buildings like the old liquor factory turned now into the Contemporary Art Museum, the Elections Tribunal, and the Metallic building, an old elementary school completely made of metal and surrounded by several parks with beautiful tropical vegetation.
At the end of this immersion in the Costa Rican culture, you will enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before your San Jose City Tour VIP bus takes you back to your hotel.
