Nightlife & the Arts in San José

San José Nightlife

The metro area's hottest nightlife has migrated to the Central Valley suburbs of Escazú and Heredia these days. Both are about 20-minute taxi rides from downtown San José. The capital isn't devoid of places to go in the evening, however. There's still plenty of bars, dance places, and restaurants and cafés where you can spend the evening. Take taxis to and from when you go; it's the safest option if you're out after dark. Most places will be happy to call you a cab—or, if there's a guard, he can hail you one—when it's time to call it a night.
