Had an excellent Pura Vida food experience with Alejandro. My favorites were the ceviche stall at the Market Central and the coffee at Cafe Nau Ta. On my return to San Jose, I ate ceviche at that place again. Delicious.

Thanks for the review Emma, you nailed it. We hire staff that LOVES San Jose, not your average tour guides walking a group around. This is why we also limit groups to 8 people so it becomes an insider experience. You can't fit a generic...More

Thank you! San Jose has so much to offer but the best is often tucked away. That is why we limit our groups to 8 people so you can visit these special spots that are impossible to see on other generic San Jose tours. Safe...More

Alejandro was the best tour guide. We got lucky because it was a small group. He took us off the beaten path to all the secret shops and had us taste the best foods in the city. I loved the ice cream and coffee!
