Re: Disappointing San Jose
Really? I had great time whilst in San Jose. Which hostel did you stay in? I found it a really interesting place, as it is the seat of the government and there is so much political and economic activity evident.

Disappointing San Jose
I heard such good things about Costa Rica so was hoping that San Jose would live up the reputation, however I spent two days in a hostel here and it was more than enough. I went to one museum but apart from that I felt that unless you like shopping you will be bored during the day time.

San Jose's Culture
There are still some remains of colonial style evident in San Jose. Stay here a while to get a full understanding of complex but interesting Costa Rican culture and history. Immerse yourself in the vibrant markets. The nightlife here is awesome.

Stop-over Boredom
We had to stop over in San Jose, as it seemed every other traveler was going there as well. It was not too bad and I have had worse stop over's but it didn't really show the real Costa Rica. A few days later we were on the beach - that was a lot better.

Okay for a Couple of Days
Like everyone else, we were just here waiting to move on to our resort; however I was really pleasantly surprised. Although not that pretty to look at it is definitely the real Costa Rica, exuding its turbulent history with confidence.
