San Jose - Heredia
About San Jose - Heredia
A land of fascinating contrasts
Pounded by Pacific rollers on one coast and lapped by Caribbean waves on the other, Costa Rica lies at the crossroads of the Americas. Its rich heritage shows the influence of many different cultures. Stunning natural beauty and abundant wildlife have made it a magnet for ecotourism.
San Jose brims with life around the clock. This vibrant capital city is home to many important institutions, such as the National Museum and National Theater. Grand Belle Epoque buildings sit next to striking modern landmarks. Many multinationals are based here, which adds a cosmopolitan vibe.
Nearby Heredia offers a pleasant contrast. This laid-back city is known as the City of the Flowers for its lush foliage and tranquil pace of life. The Braulio Carrillo Park is a favorite spot for hikers, with its volcano giving fine views over the Central Valley.
