San Jose traffic is horrible worst than Los Angeles and New York put together! The pedestrians walk in front of your car. you are driving with buses, bikes, mopads, trucks. The 2 lane oneway streets are easily turned into 3 oneway lanes. Don't even attempt to look for parking.
Love love love Costa Rica. Have been there a few times. Once for two weeks for a mission trip. Very humid, but a great country. Once considered getting a beach house there.
Interesting capital city, though the more modern architecture for shops is totally uninspiring. The National Theater, however, is gorgeous.
Kind of ugly, definitely noisy and crowded, but worth visiting for a day or two just to get the feel of urban Costa Rica. Note that the "San Jose" International airport is not in San Jose at all but rather Alajuela, so if you're planning to connect to the airport, plan your time in and around Alajuela city, not San Jose.
