San Jose is the capital and largest city in Costa Rica. If you visit, I would recommend staying in the city center - close to Avenida Central. This auto free street passes close to the National Theater, the Gran Hotel Costa Rica, major shopping opportunities and restaurants, and the entrance to the Mercado Central, or Central Market, an interesting shopping experience I highly recommend.
San Jose has a lot to offer. We did a free walking tour which was very good. There are many parks within the center of the city with all kind of historic and symbolic statues. There are many wonderful musea, and several interesting neighborhoods to visit. We very much like the National Museum of CR and the Costa Rican art Museum at Sababa park. I loved the "Spoon" restaurant, good food with lots of vegetable options, and excellent coffee. We took the bus and used Uber a lot (very cheap).
As a capital it’s not big on ‘ tourist’ sites. Lots of gringo influence vs European. The center has a lovely church and National Theatre worth seeing. Also the central market is fun. Fine for a one day visit. Walking around is pleasant as lots of pedestrian only areas.
National Museum worth 3 or 4 hours. The cultural/gold museum was closed for maintenance. Some downtown areas sketchy, wouldn’t walk much after dark. Go enjoy the countryside it’s a wonderful country. Busses not as comprehensive as in Mexico, but very inexpensive. People friendly everywhere we went for a month.
Tell Thom metro is both gritty and beautiful depending on where you go. Weather was about 78 by day 65 by night noticeably cooler than the coastal location due to his high elevation. Kind of central to everything
Unfortunately a second class city, infrastructure totally ignored, holes in every sidewalk. The people are friendly, especially if you attempt to communicate in Spanish. The city is at 4000', so not tropical as is the coastal areas. Skip the city, you really won't be missing much.

I did not know that this was a hostel when I booked it for my family. We were worried but we couldn’t have been happier. This is a beautifully decorated and comfortable home! They even had a PlayStation which my kids went crazy for. There is a garage where we were able to park our car. It’s in a foodie neighborhood with tons of hip restaurants but you can take a long walk to downtown San Jose and the Mercado. We were told San Jose was a dump but we were pleasantly surprised with the art and culture.

Well located in the middle of what appeared to be the main busy street in San José. Decent sized rooms which despite being dated were also very clean. Beds were comfortable too. Breakfast was good, we had gallo pinto (eggs, rice and beans, plantain) everywhere in Costa Rica and this was one of the tastiest. If that doesn't excite you they had other items on offer too for an extra cost. The breakfast staff were very helpful in dealing with our dietary requirements!

The staff were amazing and the most helpful I have had helping me plan multiple day trips from San Jose. They even packaged me a breakfast to go on the days I was leaving early. The price for what you get is a bargain especially comparing to other places I have stayed in Costa Rica. The breakfast was lovely and substantial and there is plenty of social space. The first properly hot showers I have been to which was a luxury before I headed back from my month long trip.

The Barceló es a wonderful surprise. It is close to downtown San Jose and to our dentist's office while the grounds seem to be in the middle of the rainforest. The room was clean, comfortable and roomy. The food was very good with an amazing choice of breakfast food. And the airport shuttle was efficient. We couldn't ask for more.
