Costarican Art Museum in La Sabana

Originally the main terminal of San José’s first international airport, this museum houses the largest and most important collection of works by Costa Rican artists from the colonial time to the present. The museum’s permanent collection has over 6,000 pieces, including works by Juan Manuel Sánchez, Max Jiménez, Francisco “Paco” Zuñiga, Francisco Amighetti, Lola Fernández, and more. In the back patio—which used to lead to the tarmac—is a large and lovely sculpture garden. This museum is free, and anchors the eastern edge of the large La Sabana city park, making it easy to combine a visit here, with a stroll through the park.

National Theater

Construction of the theater was made in the late nineteenth century; in San Jose, only 19 thousand inhabitants

The National Theatre stood as a cultural asset of the country during a time when coffee exports were a source of its success. It presents high quality performances, with artistic criteria being very high.

The building is considered the finest historic building in the capital, and it is known for its exquisite interior which includes its lavish furnishings

Pre-Columbian Gold Museum

Is located in a subterranean building underneath the Plaza de la cultura and is managed by the Banco Central de Costa Rica. The museum has a substantial collection of over 1600 artifacts of Pre-Columbian gold dating back to AD 500. The collection includes Costa Rica's first coin, the Media Escudo which was minted in 1825, animal (notably frog) figurines, amulets, earrings, erotic statuettes and El Guerrero, a life sized gold warrior figure adorned with gold ornaments in a glass case.

The museum is divided in two areas, the orientation area which is on the second level and the exhibition of the pieces in the third level. In the introductory section the visitors can get information about the evolution and development of these cultures including both social and cultural aspects, as well as the history of metallurgy with its styles and stages in the country.

Restaurant Nuestra Tierra

You will think you're out in the rural Central Valley. Bunches of onions and peppers dangle from the ceiling, recalling a provincial ranch. The generous homemade meals are delicious, and the incredibly friendly waitstaff, who epitomize Costa Rican hospitality and dress in folkloric clothing, prepare your coffee filtered through the traditional cloth chorreador.

Artisan Crafts Market

Has a fantastic assortment of colorful crafts. It is the largest presentation of artisan and craft ware in the country. The market occupies an entire city block connecting Avendida Central and Pan American Highway (Paseo Colon), beside the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica. It is covered with a roof, but otherwise opens to the breeze.

You’ll find a great range of beautiful wooden carvings: Costa Rican animals, masks, pre-Columbian figures, votives and deities. Native Boruca Ritual masks depict grinning, grimacing faces, or tranquil smiling Buddha–like expressions. Boruca is the indigenous group that forms the core of Costa Rica’s Native cultures.
