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.

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.

Very nice museum where you can learn a lot. Jade is displayed well and you can look at the pieces all day. Although I know Spanish, many artifacts are described in English.
