Costa Rica’s capital San Jose is located in the Central Valley, which runs along the middle of the country, dividing the Caribbean side from the Pacific. With the Talamanca Mountains on the southern edge of the valley and a series of volcanoes on the northern edge, these highlands form a continental divide that helps to shape the weather patterns.
San Jose is the arrival point for most tourists and your choice of hotel will most likely depend on what you are panning to do next. If you are taking the road tour to Tortuguero then one of the small downtown hotels works well. For onward light aircraft flights, or land transfers to other destinations, there are convenient hotels to the northwest of the city, nearer to the international and domestic airports. If you want to avoid the crazy city traffic altogether, choose one of the converted coffee haciendas or Central Valley boutique hotels set in lush and extensive gardens.
