Located in Costa Rica’s lush Central Valley, the city is almost entirely European in flavour, partly due to the influx of Spanish, soon after Costa Rica’s discovery by Christopher Columbus.

The tendency, also, for the wealthier classes to travel and study in Europe during the ninewteenth and early twentieth centuries added to the Eurpoean influence, which can be seen in the city’s architecture. San Jose is where the majority of Costa Rican’s live and work, a busy, vibrant Latin American metropolis with the country’s pristine natural attractions on its doorstep.
