Cheap Flights to San Jose, Costa Rica

See all departure points

Costa Rica's capital has a fabulous array of both natural and man-made attractions to entice the traveler. Set amid majestic mountains, this city's skyline is an attraction in itself, particularly when viewed from the renowned Justice Square. San Jose is particularly famous for its theatres, of which it has several, all of them inspired by European architecture. Perhaps the most famous ones in the city are the National Theater of Costa Rica and the Melico Salazar Theatre, both of which are fantastic places to come for some entertainment. San Jose has a very rich pre-Columbian cultural heritage, and the Pre-Columbian Museum of Gold is a wonderful resource for viewing some ancient artefacts, all of them made of glimmering precious metals. In addition to this, the Museo de los Niños, or Children's Museum, is a really unique place to visit and, naturally, a very family-friendly location. The city is also renowned for its beautiful parks. The National Park and the San Jose Central Park are both fantastic green spaces for taking a stroll in or for enjoying a scenic picnic. The Morazán Park is also home to a beautiful neoclassical pavilion called the Temple of Music.

Best Time to Fly to San Jose

For many people, the weather is a key factor when they are deciding what time of year to visit Costa Rica. May is the hottest month, whilst most rain falls in September and October. There are festivals going on throughout the year in this city, so you might like to time your visit to coincide with one of them. The New Year celebrations on January 1 and Labour Day on May 1 are both great opportunities to partake in country-wide festivities involving music, processions and food.

Getting around San Jose

The bus network in the capital city of Costa Rica is privately owned, and is the most common way of getting around. There are also taxis, which are slightly more expensive, and which are distinguished by their red colour. Visitors to San Jose can also make use of the Inter-Urban Railway Network which connects the city with neighbouring urban spaces, like Pavas and Curridabat. San Jose's transport network is still being modernised: it only announced plans to institute its first street signs in 2012. So be prepared to take a little time, and, if in doubt, walking is a wonderful way to see the city!
