a VirtualTourist member from San Jose
I am going to Costa Rica for the first time in August and will be spending three weeks. I am going to be staying with a host family and taking language classes. I am staying in San Joaquin, which I believe is a suburb of San Jose.
Can any one tell me about San Joaquin, things to do, etc.?
During the week I will be in class, but will want to get out for short afternoon trips and longer weekend trips. I've read so much about the great parks, preserves, etc. in Costa Rica...
