San José, which lies in the centre of the country, lies on an altitude of a little over 1000 metres and this is why it’s never extremely hot and why it cools down nicely at night.

We also definitely recommend a stay near Alajuela when you arrive or before you leave. This town is closer to the international airport than the capitol of San Jose and in its surrounding area, in the middle of nature; you will find some wonderful accommodations. Near Alajuela, a 45 minute drive, you will find the first interesting attractions of Costa Rica such as the active Poas volcano and the beautiful area around the Peace Falls, La Cataratas del Paz.
