San Jose City Map

Find you way around Costa Rica with this complete set of travel and road maps below, sectioned into popular areas, towns, and attractions, in alphabetical order. Since most visitors still arrive at the international airport outside of San Jose, use this map of greater San Jose to find your way into the city. When in San Jose itself, use this street map of downtown San Jose. However, with San Jose's confusing labyrinth of one-way streets, at times crushing congestion and lack of parking space, we suggest that you would be less stressed in taking one of the inexpensive and ubiquitous taxis. (It seems at times that every 5th car is a taxi in the downtown area!) In the left hand margin, below the link menu, are street maps of other popular and more populated cities. Enjoy your travel and / or vacation in Costa Rica!

Region Maps of Costa Rica

People refer to the map of the Six Regions of Costa Rica, below, which basically describe the area of the country in terms of location, weather, and activity. For instance, the Central Region is in the mountainous central highlands where the weather is cooler and you will find most of the population living in greater San Jose. Also, it is there that the wonderful Costa Rican coffee is grown!

Any region with "Pacific" or "Caribbean" attached to it will be closer to or at the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, and therefore will be warmer and, of course, have the beautiful beaches and surf for which Costa Rica is well known. What a great place to vacation, and where most visitors prefer to go!
