We spent 4 days in San Jose at the end of our vacation. San Jose doesn't have many attractions so on a rainy Chrismtas day, we took a day trip to the Orosi River Valley and Ujarras Ruins. We had a rental car and drove ourselves. Our GPS took us through city centers, suburban neighborhoods and down country lanes - sometimes I wondered where we were headed. Eventually, it lead us to a lovely spot overlooking the valley. We then took a winding road down into the valley and took a look at a hydro electric dam and the Ujarras ruins. The ruins were located down a little side road that we missed at first. Very scenic, though we were able to see everything of interest within 20 minutes. The drive to and from took a bit over an hour each way making this a trip spent mostly in the car. Still, it was better than sitting in the hotel!
