Itinerary & Notes
With over a third of the country's population living within its parameters, San Jose is packed with both people and culture. There is a welcome meeting at 6 pm at your hotel, a good chance for you to meet your leader and fellow travellers. We'll also be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at the evening welcome meeting, so please have these on hand. Look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place if you can't see a sign. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please let the hotel reception know. If you arrive with time to spare, why not visit the National Museum? This canary-yellow building houses everything from exhibits on pre-Colombian history to a garden filled with native butterflies, and the diversity makes it a great place to get an overview of the country before your adventure begins. Early bird history buffs might be interested in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum or the Jade Museum, both of which display a wealth of indigenous artefacts.
