What you'll do

The experience consists in a photo walk of 2.5- 3hrs, schedule 9:00-12:00 md or 2:00 -5:00 pm, to explore the architecture and urban landscape of San José best knows neighborhoods and cultural attractions. San José is a city of lots of architectural contrasts, the architecture of Costa Rica is no less impressive, with a mixture of Spanish, indigenous and colonial influence. After the arrival of Columbus in 1502, many of the first constructions were of Spanish style, and it was not until the sixteenth century that colonial architecture began to prosper. Cultural buildings began to emerge with the cultivation of coffee that cemented the way to grandiose structures such as the National Theater in San Jose, completed in 1897. In this experience will visit neo-colonial, art-deco and contemporary buildings. Another highlight in the experience is the street photography, here we will visit different locations such as the Mercado Central (Central Market), parks, and. main streets in San José, in which will be shown the Costarican daily activities.
