San José Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 25 photos

Traffic in Downtown

Driving in San Jose is a challenge as the roads are clogged with cars and people. The roadways are very primitive and so if your used to driving in some other parts of the world it will take a little while to get used to it.


The Irazu Volcano is only 24 miles from Downtown San Jose and well worth the trip to it. It is situated at an elevation of 11,260ft. so it is always cool when you visit the Volcano. The Volcano is inactive at the moment it last erupted in 1998.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:pretty safe and close to many cool things.
  • Cons:The people don't have a clue how to drive.
  • In a nutshell:Nice centerlly located city
