Tour description

Discover the city of San José from the hand of a lover of the city.

On this tour you will learn the stories behind each building, monuments and parks. We will visit hidden corners that few people know, we will also visit the well-known lung of the city where different wild animals and beautiful flora live.
We will begin the tour at the Rafael Ángel Calderón Guardia museum house , we will pass through the old customs house which was the place where in 1888 the merchandise of the country was stored and negotiated, cooking the first railway to the Atlantic.

We will visit parks such as El Nacional, Spain, Morazán and their stories , we will explain the route to the central market founded in 1880. Later, we will know the Naturban routes known as the lung of San José, ending with a tour of the various architectures such as Victorian, Eclectic and Baroque. .
As a good "TICO" I will put all my passion so that you fall in love with my city.

Solo podíamos hacer el tour a una hora determinada y Randall se ha adaptado a nosotros sin problema. ¡Gracias Randall! Il a fait l'effort de parler français avec mon copain ! En dos horas largas hemos visto lo esencial de San José que era exactamente lo que queríamos.
