San Jose VIP Bus Tour

For the best views of San José, climb on board the VIP double-decker bus. This tour will take you to 50 landmarks and monuments, with stops for short walking tours of parks and a busy outdoor market.

Your tour starts with a welcome cocktail of fresh Costa Rican punch. Feel free to ask the waiter for anything else you need. During your tour, you won’t need the radio – you’ll have a live folk band along for the ride!

You’ll drive by striking buildings like the National Theater, the National Museum, and the Central Cathedral. Disembark to step inside the entrance to the National Stadium, which is one of San José's proudest new structures.

One of the historical highlights of the tour is the drive through the picturesque neighborhood of Barrio Amón. This area is best known for its turn-of-the-century architecture. Ivy-covered Victorian houses exhibit a colorful blend of Neoclassical and Neo-Mudéjar (Moorish revival) styles.
