My husband and I stayed in San Jose an extra couple of days just to check out the museum. This one is very interesting facts about Costa Rica. There is a butterfly garden inside too. It housed lovely Morpho Butterflies. The butterflies are drab on the outside of the wings but a vibrant blue on the inside of the wings only noticeable as they fly. There is a spot in the museum that looks out over San Jose and if you go to the west just at the edge of the property the shopping begins. The shopping seems to go on forever.
