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.
If you want a mix of nature and city, take on San José. It's near the airport (fly into Libería instead if you're heading to the beaches/Guanacaste), and you have restaurants, sodas (what locals call hole-in-the-walls), and museums when you come back from your day excursions to forests and volcanoes.
