Overall Guide : San Jose offers its tourists a host of activities and adventures amidst picturesque natural surroundings. Visit the beautiful Parque Nacional Carara, which lies to north of the province, or head down south to the spectacular Reserva Forestal Los Santos and the... more Parque Nacional Chirripó for a memorable rendezvous with nature. Also, the volcanoes Poás and Irazú are worth a visit. San Jose also boasts of a dynamic nightlife with a wide variety of discos, bars, casinos and restaurants. Shops and boutiques stocked with souvenirs and museums that provide a glimpse into the cultural and historical heritage are distributed across the city. The Plaza de la Cultura offers an incredible collection of pre-Colombian gold artefacts within the Gold Museum. The National Theatre on the other end is an architectural masterpiece. The Jade Museum, in the National Insurance Building, houses the largest collection of pre-Colombian jade in the Americas.
