San Jose Sights

Correos de Costa Rica (Central Post Office)

Updated 04/10/2014

Fodor's Review

The handsome, carved exterior of the post office, dating from 1917, is hard to miss among the bland buildings surrounding it. The lobby and the small pedestrian plaza in front are a perpetual beehive of activity.

Museo Filatélico. Collectors should stop at the second-floor museum for its display of historic stamps. Early-20th-century telegraphs and telephones are also on display. Admission is the purchase (downstairs at one of the post-office windows) of

a prepaid postcard sufficient for mailing to North America. Correos de Costa Rica, C. 2, Avdas. 1–3, 2nd fl., 10101. 2223–9766. Weekdays 7:30–6, Sat. 8–noon.
