i enjoyed looking at the many design styles that make the exterior of this building so special. The city of San Jose are refurbishing all of their historic buildings.

Definitely a very unique architectural building. Even the people who work at the post office are should I say unique. Went to San Jose Costa Rica in March with one of my goals to mail postcards from there back to the States and Europe. After waiting in line I looked to purchase 25 post card stamps. It turned out though I needed Costa Rican money to purchase the stamps and not the American Dollar. Went next door and purchased their currency and was able to mail them the next day.
I must say the building and people made it a unique experience and overall I was happy to send the postcards. Lets just hope they ( the postcards) make it to their final destinations.
Something that I would do is not make you purchase two stamps for overseas delivery. The stamps are large and you had to lick them to affix the postage.
Definitely it was one of many highlights of my trip (that may sound corny but it's true).

A must see for everyone visiting San Jose. It's open to the public from 8 am to 6 pm. You can go inside and no one will bother you. You can request to talk to some one to know more about the building. There are security guards at the main entrance and also inside. At the lobby is common to see art from local artists.

The building contains all the services you would expect from a post office. I have been coming here for decades, and I always mail my postcards from here. The staff is very friendly and efficient.
