Reference Map of
San Jose Province Costa Rica
The Province of San Jose is comprised of 20 Counties (or Cantones). The
sprawling metropolitan area of the nation's capital city covers most of
the northern portion of the Province, and several counties in both
Heredia and Alajuela
Provinces. You can find more information about the City of San Jose at:
The remainder of San Jose Province is the rural cloud and rain forests
Costa Rica is famous for. The Province extends south from San Jose City
the Talamanca Mountain Range, where you will find the nation's second
city, San Isidro de El General.
Most of the Province of San Jose is covered by the Central Volcanic
Area (ACCVC), and many of the nation's National Parks are within a
drive of the city.
The highway system in the capital city of San Jose is comprised of
multi-lane freeways that look very much like freeways in other large
around the world.
The rules of the road are similar, but you may find driving
etiquette to be somewhat different. For instance, merging and changing
are often accompanied by a quick honk on the horn. This is not
rude - it is like a friendly wave, saying "Yoo-Hoo, I'm Here!"
