Most of our Costa Rica tours and cruises start and finish in the tropical capital city of San Jose. Here, tucked between the volcanoes of the central valley, you will be immersed in a city with centuries of culture. Architecture highlights the city with gems like the neoclassical National Theatre and the impressive Pre-Columbian Gold Museum by the Plaza de la Cultura. Consider taking a half-day tour of the city or add a rafting adventure along the Pacuare River as an adrenaline-racing extension to your trip. It's also a great departure point for jungle explorations, where you can see animals like macaws, sloths, anteaters, and more. If you're really up for an adventure, a beach & jungle tour might be right for you, with opportunities to snorkel, kayak, hike, bike, horseback ride, raft, and relax on the sun-kissed coast.
