Christmas Day In San Jose

We will be staying in downtown San Jose from December 23rd thru the 26th. I was wondering what would open - museums, stores, tour operators, taxis and buses running. Will everything be shut down on Christmas Day?

I was here last year but am going to States this year. Ghost town. I knew it was quiet so I didn't get out much and search out places that might be open so there could be a few places that I didn't know about. But I definitely would plan to entertain yourself on Christmas day.

Not much going on on Xmas day...a lot of people moving out of San Jose to visit...beaches, volcanos, etc...I bet you have never seen so many coolers on the cars roofs!

Merry Xmas...

I could be wrong, but I think Dec 26th is the Tope Caballos festival?

Good call Valerie. The day after Christmas there will be activity around town. I might have my dates mixed up but I think the festival in Zapote starts that day too. The Tope is definitely worth seeing. Cowboys and cowgirls all over downtown San Jose last year.
