Our San Jose Walking Tour is a must during your visit to the capital! For years both locals and foreigners have forgotten what the capital has to offer. San Jose is a city full of history, architectural beauty, colorful gardens and it's citizens are recognized as friendly and happy people.This tour was first started in 2010 and it consists of a historical journey through the capital and aims to show a new side of the city very few people have seen. A more authentic side full of small details that define the culture of Costa Rica. Food and tourism go hand in hand. Costa Rica has thousands of flavors and ChepeCletas would like to invite you on a tour that can be seen, smelt and tasted. Join us to discover the Central Market, founded in 1880, it preserved the heart and essence of the Costa Rican popular culture. It is possible to find a great assortment of fruits and vegetables, meats, seafood, spices, ornaments, animals and even religious figures. It is known for its sodas (small informal restaurants) which are the oldest and most famous of the country for their food, traditions and personalized service. Many businesses have remained in the same family for up to four generations. Their owners show great pride in this legacy and have found the market to be like a second family. The Central Market is alive and is used by everyone. Visits to this place go far beyond a simple shopping experience; it's a real social experience.

We had a great private tour with Pablo today. When we initially got to San Jose and saw the traffic, we were apprehensive about riding bikes through the streets. But we were pleasantly surprised to see how many bike lanes and paths the city has....More
