Talk:San José (Costa Rica)

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

It is misleading to have San Jose and Tamarindo as the 2 links in Costa Rica. It should be San Jose (as it is the capital) and OUTSIDE SAN JOSE. Tamarindo is just a town in an area like Jaco or Tortuguero etc. Therefore it needs to be in regions - northwest, caribbean etc. I spend a lot of time in the area south of Limon - Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and Cocles, and there's lots to be said about there and the rest of Costa Rica.

On the other hand, you can get lucky and go into the official Tourist Board version. But that's not the point is it, from what I read in NY Times.

Sleep listings "near the airport"[edit]

While San José does indeed have two airports in the general thereabouts (SJO and SYQ) only the latter is actually in San José and that one does not see international flights. Hence I am moving the listings that were under the heading "near the airport" onto this talk page. If they're not already there, they should most likely be listed in our Alajuela article. This is yet again a reason for geo coordinates. Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:13, 12 August 2017 (UTC)

The "by train section"[edit]

Could do with some updating from the website of the national railway. Should we add fares and departure times/frequencies? Hobbitschuster (talk) 15:17, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
