City Highlights

Just a fifteen-minute walk from the hotel, you will find downtown San Jose’s pedestrian boulevard. This busy area comprises a maze of streets with plenty of museums and restaurants to discover. With a cosmopolitan spirit, San Jose is rich in culture, history and beautiful architecture, though buildings here are rarely over one-hundred years old in age. Often overlooked as one of Latin America’s best cities to visit, there is plenty to appreciate, from colourful rooftops and outdoor plazas to peaceful parks and gourmet restaurants – you will be surprised to find how much is on offer!

Culture & History

While it may be a relatively young city, there is a fantastic flurry of historical and cultural gems to discover. The biggest museums include the National Art Museum, the Gold Museum and the Jade Museum, which feature preserved masterpieces and intriguing artefacts from Latin America. The National Theatre is nearby the hotel, which is one of the most beautiful buildings with lavish interiors, where the National Symphonic Orchestra performs. The hotel can assist guests with self-guided or accompanied tours to help you explore the city.


From Grano De Oro Hotel in San Jose, you can depart the city and head out to explore the rainforest, volcanoes and adventurous landscapes nearby.
