There is nothing very special about San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. But the country is a wonderful vacation, and most flights come in to San Jose. If you decide to stay in San Jose for a night or two, as we did (parents and 3 children, ages 22, 20 and 14) in July of 2010, the Grano de Oro is a must stay. Beautiful, elegant and comfortable rooms in a turn of the century environment that will make you think that you have stumbled into the world of Disneyland's jungle cruise. Nice people, and the restaruant in the hotel is the best in Costa Rica, no kidding. Just an alert- the hotel is in a plain uninteresting part of the city, but frankly the whole city is uninteresting. We spent the full day that we had in San Jose at the the Britt coffee plantation, which was great fun. Loved Grano do Oro.
