San José Panoramic Bus Tour

When making your reservation, you'll have the choice of three different options to complete your panoramic bus tour of the Costa Rican capital: 

Tour with lunch

Having been picked up from your hotel at 10 am, you'll climb aboard the double-decker tour bus and embark on your route around San José. For the perfect introduction to the city, you'll be treated to a welcome drink of a typical local fruit juice.

The first stop of your tour will be at the Teatro Nacional to admire the beautiful architecture of the city's main theatre. Not far from here, you'll see the Museum of Costa Rican Art and the Museum of Rafael Ángel Calderón Guardia.

You'll get a feel for the lively pace of daily life as you explore the Mercado Central, before visiting the new National Stadium and marvelling at the impressive Metropolitan Cathedral. Your panoramic bus tour will come to an end back at your hotel at around 3 pm.

Tour with dinner

This bus tour will follow the same itinerary as above, making a stop at around 3:15 pm so that you can indulge in a delicious buffet lunch. Enjoy a selection of typical Costa Rican delicacies at a local restaurant - mouth-watering!

After your meal, you'll continue your tour around San José, being dropped back off at your hotel at 7 pm.

Night tour with dinner

You'll be picked up from your hotel at around 3:30 pm to begin your panoramic tour around San José, enjoying your welcome drink as you admire the sights.

The route will be very similar to the above tours, but you'll make your last stop at the Edificio Metálico, one of the most emblematic buildings in the Costa Rican capital.

For the finishing touch on your day of sightseeing, you'll enjoy a buffet dinner of traditional Costa Rican specialities in a local restaurant. 

At 10:30 pm, your tour will come to an end and you'll return to your hotel by bus.
