“Since 1917”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

The building contains all the services you would expect from a post office. I have been coming here for decades, and I always mail my postcards from here. The staff is very friendly and efficient.

“Beautiful architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The architecture of this building is immensely impressive, but the museum is small and only deserves a quick visit.

“Historic Building downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Walk by! There are few historic buildings that are as well kept in San Jose, so it's a nice walk and the people around the Correos building are always interesting and a great portrayal of the working class in the country, rushing to and fro. Recommended
