Some info about San Jose in Costa Rica

San Jose can be hot during the day, but since it is a pretty good distance above sea level it can get chilly as well. Jeans and sweatshirts are a good idea to have. Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere.

Depending on what you plan to do is how much money you will need to bring. If you just want to chill, check out the museums and parks, you won't need much. If you go out gambling and to the discos, the figure is about 2/3 of what you would spend in the US. If you go on Volcano tours or the like, you are looking at $50-$100 per tour.

If you are traveling with a group you should be fine but if you wander out alone try and stay away from the Coca Cola terminal. It's an entire area where most bus stations are and is known for crime. If you have to go there, no big deal, just don't let any of your belongings out of site and try to go during daylight.
