San Jose is the largest city in Costa Rica, surrounded by the rocking hills of the California Bay Area. It is an outstanding technology and innovation hub called the capital of Silicon Valley with a warm climate and high cost of living.
Every local of San Jose misses The Naglee Park Garage when he leaves the Bay. This restaurant is loved for its big beef burgers with excellent toppings like avocado, blue cheese, bacon, and more. One more must-have dish is sushi. Though one can find a lot of sushi restaurants in Japantown, go to Fuji Sushi for an iconic roll. If you prefer ice cream, your best place is Milk and Wood. This innovative shop offers Oreo cookie mint and peanut butter cups. Locals adore cafe Stritch for its Mac and Cheese Waffles and gorgeous live jazz.
San Jose boasts cultural diversity and offers top-rated activities: museums, live music, and theaters. The National Theater at Plaza de Cultura has offered its stage from 1897 to lyrical shows, talks with famous artists, and music events.
If you are interested in authentic gold and jewelry, visit the underground Pre-columbian Gold Museum en la Plaza de la Cultura. Dragons, coins, and other amazing gold pieces are demonstrated on the first floor. The second floor shows the evolution of our civilization, while the top floor tells the stories behind each gold article.
You would never run out of things to do in San Jose in this home city to Apple, Samsung, PayPal, IBM, and many more giants. As such, visiting The Tech Museum of Innovation is a good idea while in San Jose. See how computer technologies penetrated most successful corporations in the past and watch how they inspire young people now. Before moving to its current location, this museum was housed in a garage. But the interactive approach made this place so famous that it needed more space to host its fans. Don't miss the IMAX experience with its huge view-screen.
