Costa Rica’s capital stands in the centre of the country at an elevation of around 1,200 metres, so enjoys a near-perfect average temperature of 21C year round.

As it has the main international airport, and is the country’s transport hub, you will inevitably spend a night or two here at some stage of your trip. The downtown area is small, but there are several interesting museums and parks, plus the Barrio Amonn district, where the mansions of several former coffee barons have been restored to their original glory.
