Thrifty Car Hire at San Jose International Airport in Costa Rica
San Jose is a vibrant city which grew around the coffee industry. There are still many coffee plantations which operate outside of the city and the colonial heritage is very evident within the city itself. Many of the original colonial houses have been converted into hotels, art galleries and museums. There is a dynamic nightlife in El Pueblo district which has a very Spanish influence. Enjoy a good meal and some live music to get a real feel for this inspiring city.
