The main post office in Costa Rica is located in downtown San Jose and is very close to the museums and many other points of interest.

Architecturally worth a visit! One of the nicest colonial buildings in San Jose. Centrally located and easy to find.

On our walk around San Jose, we ended up on a very narrow street that led us to this beautiful building. Only downside in my personal opinion is the yellow color and the thousands of pigeons surrounding the area. Definitely watch out for them perched up in branches all around you! A must see if walking around the downtown area... More

The central post office in downtown San Jose is an interesting example of old, traditional Costa Rican architecture, and is worth passing by if you are going to be downtown anyway. There is a cafe in the back so you can stop and enjoy a cup of coffee while you are there. Probably not worth a special trip to see,... More

This was more of a trip to get stamps. However I am very surprised to see it listed as a thing to do. The exterior is very elaborate. The paint on the exterior is of a finish that shows up blemishes. Someone should have chosen the proper finish. It's like a wee little injustice to the building. The post office... More

Definitely a very unique architectural building. Even the people who work at the post office are should I say unique. Went to San Jose Costa Rica in March with one of my goals to mail postcards from there back to the States and Europe. After waiting in line I looked to purchase 25 post card stamps. It turned out though... More

A must see for everyone visiting San Jose. It's open to the public from 8 am to 6 pm. You can go inside and no one will bother you. You can request to talk to some one to know more about the building. There are security guards at the main entrance and also inside. At the lobby is common to... More
