Your journey starts at one of the main historical roads in Costa Rica, Paseo Colon.

This road crosses the capital city and is home to the emblematic Children's Hospital and San Juan de Dios Hospital. Close to the hospital is the La Merced Park, a popular gathering spot for foreign nationals.

The tour continues on 2nd Avenue until you reach the famous Central Park, which according to some historians was built in 1837. This park was remodeled in the 90's and its beautiful kiosk is the only original piece that is left standing.

The Melico Salazar Theater, named after one of the most popular tenors in Costa Rica, granted the general population access to cultural activities and shows. Today, the Theater hosts a variety of events ranging from children shows to opera concerts.

Not far from the theater is the Metropolitan Cathedral, a religious symbol for the Costa Rican society.

This neoclassical church was originally designed by Jose Quirce from Spain, but has been transformed over the years to what it is today.

Close to the Cathedral you'll find one of Costa Rica's most precious architectural masterpieces, the National Theater. This theater has hosted the most important cultural and social events in the country and its construction was the result of enormous efforts from Costa Ricans and the great vision of prominent businessmen from the late 1800's.

Finally, you will reach the recently renovated Plaza de la Democracia, home to the former Bellavista Fort. Bullet holes from the 1948 Civil War can still be seen in the walls of this building, which is now the National Museum. The museum holds diverse botanical, entomological, and ornithological collections.

After enjoying this sightseeing tour, you'll head to a traditional restaurant to get a taste of authentic Costa Rican cuisine.
