• Spend some time in Costa Rica's capital city

    2011-09-26

    The thought of visiting cities on vacation may have travelers envisioning skyscrapers and chaotic streets. However, San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, boasts incredible natural beauty due to the country's efforts to preserve its environment.

    The largest green area within city limits in the Parque Nacional, which provides a beautiful setting for season-round strolls, reports Lonely Planet. The highlights within this park are the intricate statues that represent Latin figures in history, including Mexican political figure Miguel Hidalgo and Cuban poet Jose Marti.

    Museo del Jade downtown is home to the biggest collection of North American jade in the world. According to Fodor's, guests are encouraged to peruse the various exhibits, some of which are illuminated to showcase their translucency. Some artifacts date back centuries, including corn grinding tables and colorful, vibrant vases from pre-Columbian times.

    Travelers in this capital city should make sure they do their part to protect the gorgeous natural environment for future travelers. Littering and defacing vegetation is frowned upon, especially in this nation that respects its natural surroundings to the highest degree.
