Why study in San José?
Costa Rica’s capital and biggest city, San Jose is a diverse and vibrant city with a large number of universities and colleges. It’s the country’s education hub, with a large student population and plenty of attractions including the neoclassical National Theater. Outside the city there are some of Costa Rica’s must see sights, including Arenal Volcano and the Monteverde cloud forest.
San Jose is a densely populated city, but there are plenty of parks and squares where you can get away from the hustle and bustle. You can get around the city using its bus routes, or by taking one of the red public taxis. San Jose has a tropical climate, so expect year round heat and periods of rain.
