Hello travelers! Welcome to San Jose! My name is Jules. I was born here in Costa Rica and raised in the United States. Experiencing both cultures has deeply broadened my perspectives of the world in a meaningful way.
With more than 15 years of living in Costa Rica, I can truly say I have adopted the “Pura Vida” lifestyle – from excursions deep into the jungle to experiencing the music and food unique to the country. And as an avid reader and cultural buff, it’s been a fascinating journey to learn about the history that surrounds this amazing city. It will be my pleasure to be your guide!
Let me share the stories that can open your eyes to the wonders that are in front of you as we take a journey from the past and see things in the present in a fresh way as we walk through history and its ties to the present – and beyond!
This tour is tips based – so just know your tour is incentivized for the highest quality and enjoyment! The idea is to provide you with more than just a standard walking tour. I was an ESL teacher for many years so I know the value of keeping a group engaged and interested.
A great way to get to know the central area of San Jose.
I had a really great tour experience with Jules. He was very thoughtful, professional, and thorough in his tour and made sure that we were all enjoying all the way and getting all our questions answered. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and is passionate about his job. I very much enjoyed that experience and will heartily recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn more about San Jose via a fun and engaging walking tour.
Jules was very professional and ensured we not only saw the main sites but he provided tons of history and stories along the route to keep us entertained. During the tour he was kind enough to buy the group some fruit for us to sample because we didn't have the local currency. Overall we thought the tour was outstanding and would recommend it to those who want to capture the rich history/sites of San Jose.
Whether in English or Spanish, Jules is a wonderful, very knowledgeable guide. I’m fact you couldn’t ask for a better guide of San Jose. I learned a lot and had a good time. Thank you Jules!
Even though I was the only person to show up for this tour Jules took me on an incredible one on one tour of the city. I don’t usually leave reviews but I thoroughly enjoyed this tour it was the right mix of historical information and fun facts. Also he had really great visual aids. Can highly recommend this walking tour.
