San Jose Costa Rica day trip travel tips

Thank you for watching, fellow primate !
I recently had a short business trip to San Jose, Costa Rica which gave me a mere four hours to do some sightseeing.
What is there to see and do in San Jose ?
First hire a taxi driver for the day, or for the going rate of approximately $15 per hour (like I did).
Then I visited the National Theater, the Jade museum, and the Gold museum in four quick hours, with plenty of sights still unseen like the nearby volcanoes and rain forests.
Every admission fee at these sights was about $10 (US) and closed at about 5 PM.
Next time, guys !
I'm grateful for every view, comment, subscription, and share.

How to Travel to COSTA RICA on a Budget



Two Weeks in Costa Rica (No Plan)

I head to Costa Rica for 2 weeks with no agenda. I land in San Jose and decide to head to the beach for New Years. I arrive in Tamarindo and meet an amazing group of people who I end up traveling with the rest of the trip. From there I am convinced to travel to Nicaragua, a place I never thought I’d end up on the trip.

Where I Went
San Jose
San Juan Del Sur

What I Did
Bar Crawl
White Water Rafting

COSTA RICA - FIRST SOLO TRAVEL 18yrs old | Student Travel Vlog

This is the story of an 18yrs old student's first ever solo travel trip to Costa Rica for a week. I spontaneously decided to embark on this journey one week prior to school starting because I was dying to start traveling the world. And I am serious when I said that I booked the tickets the night before the flight haha (am i crazy or crazy). I learned a lot both about myself as well as about Costa Rica. I also started to discover the beauties of solo traveling, but also their drawbacks. Despite what the film shows, I actually did do a lot of research before my trip; it was just done in a very short amount of time :') Also, the video does not show this, but as soon as my mom and friend dropped me off to the airport, I finally realized the magnitude of my decision haha. After my first day though, it started feeling like second nature, and I was no longer worrying about myself, but about how I could make the most of my trip. I learned a lot in terms of traveling Costa Rica, but also beginner solo traveling tips. The video was already getting very long, so I cut out a lot about my actual reflections and thoughts; if people want, I would love to make seperate videos about these topics.

Another big thanks to Franziska for sending me over the GoPro footage!!!
