Pura Vida San Jose

San Jose By Night Wines and Gourmet Dinner 

Get up close and personal with the nightlife in San Jose, starting with the Central Market, which, in our opinion, is the only way to learn about the city’s food. Stroll the market with your guide and get to know the secrets and uses of the roots, herbs, and fruit common in local cuisines, including ingredients that will play a role in your authentic dinner later. 

After the market, you’ll make your way down Central Avenue, from there, your appreciation for San Jose’s historical architecture continues, with a walk through Morazan Park to enjoy the Metallic Building, the Spain Park for a fantastic view of the Yellow House. You’ll continue to charming Barrio Amon, one the oldest neighborhoods in San Jose. 

You’ll be spending the rest of the evening at a favorite local restaurant that specializes in wine and gourmet food. This cozy establishment offers the best in Costa Rican cuisine, a unique space that offers art, culture and history as well as fine dining. Between your tasty three course meal, and wines that go down a treat, you’ll be ending the evening in fine fashion, feeling every bit the San Jose local.
