The Plaza de la Cultura is considered San Jose's unofficial focal point. It's a great place to soak up the colorful atmosphere of the Costa Rica capital. This is where you'll find the Museo del Oro Precolumbino (the world-class Pre-Columbian Gold Museum) and the famous Teatro Nacional (pictured below).
