San Jose is the capital of Costa Ricas and is located in the center of the country at about 3900 feet above sea level. Almost half of the country’s population lives here (2.2 million with surroundings). San Jose is mostly consist of one or two floor houses closely built together with a few tall buildings rising up to the sky. As a tourist there are not to many things to do in the city and at Swetours we think that while visiting Costa Rica there are more interesting and beautiful things to see and experience than the city. While waste your time in a noisy city when you can enjoy great beaches and nature? Considering it’s relatively big size in this part of the world San Jose is considered one of the safest capitals of Latin America. Juan Santa Maria airport is one of the two international airports in the country and it is by far the biggest.It is located right outside San Jose in the city of Alajuela and about 15 minutes from the city center. We work with San Jose Palacio which is just 15 minutes from the airport and we recommend it is a great option for overnight stays on arrival and before departure.
