Your day-by-day itinerary

Day 1

Arrival in San Jose

You’ll be met at the airport by our local representative, who’ll give you your welcome pack before you’re transferred to your hotel in the centre of the city, where you can settle in and the kids can take a dip in the pool. Most flights from Europe arrive in the afternoon or early evening, so you’ll usually have time for a little exploring and dinner in one of the local restaurants before everyone gets a good night’s sleep back the hotel.

Day 2

Meet our local partners, and explore the city

After breakfast, you’ll be picked up and taken to the office of our local partners, in a nice neighbourhood near the centre. They’ll give you a briefing with lots of useful information about the journey ahead – they’ll be available 24/7 throughout your trip in case you need anything, so it’s nice to know who they are! The afternoon is free for you to hang out in one of the parks or at the hotel, try some local food or take a taxi to Museo de los Ninos (Children’s Museum) in the north of the city.
