In front of the Central Bank of Costa Rica some statues show the tough life of the old farmers.
The National Theater
is the most impressive of San Jose’s public buildings. It is a small copy of the Paris Opera house. Inside the theater there is a nice coffee shop in art nouveau style with tasteful cakes.
During the last day we have visited the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. Precolumbian means the art objects are from the time before Columbus discovered America. There are over 2000 objects and jewels in gold on exhibition. The museum is well worth seeing.
For security reasons the guide told us to not leave the main places in downtown San Jose and to avoid at all costs walking at night.
The tallest building in the city is Holiday Inn
in which we lived.
