HIGHLIGHTS
MORE INFORMATION

Explore San Jose by night, complete with cultural icons, and a tasty dinner with beverage pairings – that’s your evening sorted! Get up close and personal with the nightlife in San Jose, starting with Morazán Park where we will learn post-colonial Costa Rican history. From there, our appreciation for San Jose’s historical architecture continues, with a walk by the Metallic Building, then on to Spain Park for a fantastic view of the Yellow House (now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs). We’ll continue to charming Barrio Escalante, one of the oldest residential areas in San Jose. The "barrio" as locals call it, was first a coffee farm but by the 1950's became the favourite neighbourhood for the economic and political elites of the time. Nowadays, Barrio Escalante has reinvented itself and is now home to many up and coming restaurants and at night is a favourite meeting spot for locals and visitors alike. The evening will end with a contemporary traditional meal at a hip local restaurant that is very popular with locals and offers a sampler of traditional Costa Rican pub fare. Between your tasty three-course meal, and wine or beer that go down a treat, you’ll be ending the evening feeling every bit the San Jose local. Your local guide will be happy to provide suggestions on where to head next, but if not, they can assist you with getting a taxi back to your accommodation.
