If you visit beautiful Costa Rica don't miss an opportunity to take in a performance at this stunning building. You can pay to have a look inside during the day, and if you are lucky one of the many performers at this theatre will be in rehearsal, so you can watch. There is an extensive performance program including music, opera and dance, so check the notices at the entrance to see what is on. It costs very little to attend and is excellent. You can also have a good meal or simply coffee at the cafe adjoining the Teatro. cardboard sailors Toronto NSW Australia

To our minds, this is the number one and only tourist attraction in San Jose. It is a dont miss. In addition to learning about the history of the lovely building, much other helpful cultural information was imparted by our wonderful and informative guide Jeffrey Meza. Thanks so much!

I was expecting more because of all the advertisment, but it's just a two story building that is in need of a power wash.
