What travelers to San Jose are saying

Big, scary city where the streets are often unmarked. We were hit with a scam we had not read (until after the fact) about where someone poked a hole in the tire of our rented vehicle and took our purse and backpack while we were fixing the tire. National Car Rental was extremely good to us and helped us through getting the incident reported and getting my passport replaced.

On this trip I used San Jose as a jumping off point. I did not stay long and explore the city. But I am always amazed at how San Jose sits in the valley of the mountains. For an urban environment, you are never far from the beauty of the earth. As with everywhere in Costa Rica, the people are amazingly kind, helpful and intelligent.

I like San Jose. I stayed in the hotel most of the time. Family members who live in a nearby town took me to dinner and shopping in local shops, so I was able to purchase local products for gifts. I also enjoyed the casino, even came out ahead by about $40.
