Home to SJO - the Juan Santamaria International Airport (named after the country's national hero)... it's the second largest city in the country, just minutes to west of the nation's capitol - San Jose.

A launch pad to exploration, there's no shortage of things to see and do in and around the Central Valley.

From the La Paz Waterfall Gardens to bungee jumping to coffee tours, and even to testing your luck, right across the street from the airport - at the Fiesta Casino...
