San Jose

Jump to last reply

My family and I will be visiting Costa Rica for about two weeks over Christmas (my wife and I, two teenage children, and my mother-in-law). At the end of the trip we will be staying at the San Jose Marriott for three nights. I was thinking about hiring a driver for one day in order to tour around San Jose and Escazu. I haven't developed a specific itinerary, but would probably visit a few cultural spots, central market, do a little shopping, etc. I was interested in getting feedback as to whether this is worthwhile, what places we should see, and if it matters which day of the week we go. (Earlier in the trip we'll be staying at the Peace Lodge where we will see the Poas Volcano, Doka Coffee Plantation, etc.) Recommendations re English-speaking drivers would also be helpful.

We will be staying at the Marriott over New Year's Eve and would like to go to a nice restaurant that night. I'm thinking about going to Cerutti if it's open. Any advice re restaurants or other suggestions re New Year's Eve would also be appreciated.
