Your experience


  • Look forward to a day full of delicacies and interesting stories
  • Learn all you need to know about local markets
  • Taste traditional fruits and delicacies


The local markets offer a colourful opportunity to experience the culture of another country. Take advantage of them and join our guides on a market tour.

On this tour we will discuss the history behind the 136th anniversary of our central market and the history of the first markets that existed in our capital. We will reveal some secrets and taste some of the flavours that make our markets unique.

You will meet your guide in front of our National Theatre and he will tell you a little about the history and the economic conditions that led to the construction of this magnificent building.

Then we continue a few blocks and travel back in time to see where it all began: where, when and why San Jose was born and how it became the capital.

Once inside the market, your local guide will show you some of the hidden secrets of it and you will be able to try our unique local flavours, from tropical seasonal fruits to traditional cuisine, legendary ice cream and of course our world famous Costa Rican coffee.
