Images around San Jose, Costa Rica

Traveling in San Jose, Costa Rica I took a lot of photos and these are some of my favorite I took. San Jose is a pretty friendly budget travel destination. You can eat pretty cheap there and find budget accommodations to fit the backpacker budget.

This was taken outside a preschool.

You might have a certain image in your head of what Costa Rica is, but like everywhere else they have the ugly side. Most casinos in San Jose, Costa Rica are really high end prostitution rings. San Jose is the sex trade capitol of Central America.
