The guide Sergio very friendly, made everything more entertaining. I regret, yes, that the passage through the National Theater is only to the lobby.

San José Guided Tour

Having been picked up from your hotel on the day of your tour, you'll begin exploring the most important places of interest in San José, the capital and largest city of Costa Rica.

The first stop on your guided tour will be the National Theatre of Costa Rica, a critically acclaimed venue and one of the country's great cultural assets. Admire its lavish architecture and decoration inside and out, from the grand auditorium to the frescoes and statues that fill its elegant rooms.

Next, you'll delve into Costa Rican history as you enjoy a guided visit of the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, home to an impressive collection of gold artefacts dating back to 500 AD, and providing invaluable insight into the craftmanship of the pre-Columbian era.

Explore the lively streets of San José, making stops at some of the city's most emblematic landmarks and monuments, like the Plaza de la Libertad Electoral, a symbol of Costa Rican democracy. 

At the end of your fascinating guided tour of San José, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
