Discover the wonders of San Jose on this full day adventure on this guided motorcoach tour in Costa Rica’s vibrant capital city, San Jose. Visit the famed National Theater which was constructed in the late 19th century. The front of the theatre features statues of Calderón de la Barca and Ludwig van Beethoven. There are several monuments by the entry walkway including Frédéric Chopin. The inside features the mural Allegory of Coffee and Bananas by Milanese artist Aleardo Villa, which is featured on the five colón bill.
Venture to the artist colony of Sarchi. This town offers more than 200 stores and small family-operated woodworking factories producing wooden bowls and other tableware, and a wide variety of kitschy items. The most popular items on sale are "carretas", elaborately painted oxcarts that traditionally carried coffee from the highlands down to the port on the Pacific coast. Lunch at a local restaurant completes your exciting day.
