VIP City Bus Tour
See the Best of San José's Attractions and Culture!
See all the highlights that Costa Rica’s capital has to offer in one convenient and fun city bus tour. Get picked up from your San José hotel and taken to the start point where you will board a double-decker bus. Your informative bilingual guide will explain about each of the many cultural attractions you’ll see along the way. You will make stops for explanations and photos at the city’s main historical and cultural attractions like the National Theater, the Central Cathedral, and the Central Market, to name just a few. At certain points you will get off the bus and stretch your legs during two brief interactive walks, as well.
This is not just any city tour! There is a real focus on the cultural aspect of Costa Rica as the staff is dressed in traditional clothing, and you will enjoy live marimba folk music on board. An onboard waiter will serve you local beverages as you navigate the city. You’ll also get to listen to “bombas”- a traditional oral folklore depicting various aspects of Costa Rican life.
About 500,000 people live in San José, and a total of two million in the greater metropolitan area. That’s half the country’s population! While most tourists don’t get the chance to see where the majority of Costa Ricans live and work, with this tour, you will be able to say that you have truly seen the country.
This is a fun and interactive tour appropriate for all ages. Keep in mind there are two brief walking sections of the tour but for the majority you will be on the bus.
