Discover the beauty and culture of modern Costa Rican life on a mini San Jose adventure.
You savour San Jose the same way you do a mug of velvety Costa Rican coffee. To really appreciate this Central American gem you need time for all its subtle notes to reveal themselves – plus a friendly local to show you the way. Join us on a stopover in San Jose and discover the city’s historical neighbourhoods and markets jammed with foodie treasures. After having your fill of markets and neoclassical architecture, whiz through the mountains by train to laid back Cartago and explore its colonial streets. If you knew nothing about San Jose when you landed, it’s guaranteed you’ll be best friends when you leave.

SHORT BREAK ADVENTURE:
This Short Break Adventure is a ‘join in’ group departure, which means you are not accompanied by an Intrepid group leader. Instead, our local representative in each location will fill this role and the configuration of any fellow travellers in the group might change during the trip. This trip will run with a minimum of one person, so you may be joined by other travellers booked on the same date as you, or you may be on your own.
