san jose city ,costa rica


san jose is located in central highlands ,where it enjoys a modern climate. the heat and humidity of the coast and lowland areas may affect you with a general sense of lethargy and loss of appetite.make sure drink more water cold bottled water is available everywhere. and do not attempt too much in any given day.
