San Jose Walking Tour: Food, History and Architecture

170 reviews
Visit a pair of traditional markets in San Jose on a guided walking tour that explores local flavors, culture, and history. From a fresh cup of Costa Rican coffee to tropical fruits, you’ll sample the best of what’s in season here. It’s a great chance to see a side of the city that many visitors overlook, and walking around with a local guide means an insider perspective on life in San Jose.

This ended up being one of my favorite museums when I was in SJ. A must-see for sure and they have a great gift shop.

We had kind of a rainy day and some time to kill so we gave this a try. It was about $15 per person for a ticket. Some out good history overall and some very cool artifacts. It got a little repetitive after a while. But it is easy to get to and good value. If you like museums, probably worth the trip

I have taken my English class students to this museum. The staff is fantastic, very friendly, kind and helpful. The displays are top!! Nice atmosphere, very educational field trip, and the students loved the visit. He llevado a mis estudiantes de English Class a hacer un recorrido guiado, y ha sido un éxito. Excellent atención, finos y amistoso. Las exhibiciones son fantásticas y los estudiantes disfrutaron muchísimo.

A bit of a faff to get your tickets. The building is beautiful and the displays are lovingly shown. The information is concise and meaningful, but it's all a bit boring and repetitive.
