Description

The markets, in all over the world are a colorful way to experience the culture of each country. In this tour we will tell you the history behind the 136 years of existence of our Central Market, the history of the first markets that existed in our capital as we unveil a few secrets and taste some of the flavors that make it unique.

Once you greet your guide in front of our National Theater and he'll tell you a little bit of the history and economical circumstances that lead to this magnificent structure being built.
From there you'll walk for a few blocks and travel back in time to see where it all started: where, when and why San Jose was born and how it came to become the capital. 
You'll then get to the Central Market built in 1880. Once inside, your local guide will show you a few hidden secrets of the market and you'll get to sample our unique local flavors, from tropical seasonal fruit, to traditional cuisine, legendary ice cream, and of course, our world famous Costarican coffee.
