A visit to San Jose wouldn't be complete without visiting the labyrinthine central market for a spot of shopping. This market is popular with locals, and apart from the odd t-shirt stall, there are hardly any souvenirs on offer. You're bound to get completely lost here, but don't worry - it just means that you'll find some surprises! It's also one of the cheapest places to eat in the city, with bars and taverns scattered around the area.
This market should not be missed during your visit to the Costa Rican capital. In fact, it is one of the few markets in the city that offers crafts aimed at tourists. The prices are reasonable, so there's no need to haggle, which can really save some valuable time!
