A tour of the Arenal Volcano is a definite must for your itinerary. Visitors will be amazed at this volcano, especially at night when the volcano is lit brightly from the spewing red rocks. A trip to the Arenal Volcano is a chance of a lifetime to see one of the best volcanoes around. Day time tours are also available, but for the best experience, wait until nightfall. You can see this volcano in Fortuna, Desamparados.
The Museo de Los Niños is located in what was once a prison. Now the building serves as a beautiful museum filled with art and exhibits for children as well as adults. While some of the building has been reconstructed, some parts of it remain the same, and offer a great look at fine architecture. Here visitors can learn about the history and culture of San Jose, as well as view exhibits and presentations about geography, music, science, and more. Visit the museum at Calle 4, al norte de la Avenida 9.
Another great to-do in San Jose is the Pueblo Antiguo. A theme park suitable for all ages, guests are treated to many different festivities displaying the culture of Costa Rica. There are carnivals, dances, fireworks, boat rides, and plenty of interesting exhibits. The entire day can be spent enjoying all of the things to do here at Pueblo Antiguo, located 2 kilometers east of the San Jose Hospital.
