Being the capital of a country known for its Caribbean travel and adventure travel, San Josè is a pretty cosmopolitan region that is not completely definitive of what Costa Rica is all about. However, the high-rise buildings and malls do not take away the fact that the country is essentially defined by its forest, beaches, and natural sights. Case in point: the Jade Museum.

I know you’re probably want to puke once more after reading another tourist attraction that has something to do with nature. But swallow that vomit and bear with me for a couple of minutes. Unlike most of the places introduced to you on previous entries, the Museum boasts a wide collection of ceramics, gold, stones, and of course, pre-Columbian Jade dating back from 500 B.C. to around A.D. 900.

If you are not familiar with Costa Rican history, Jade is actually the most expensive material in the country. Aside from jade and the other materials mentioned, there are also terra-cota vases and figurines that happen to be modern and sleek in design, which shows that Costa Ricans possess technique and skill in making pots from clay.

If you’re not much appreciative of antique and stones, then you should at least find the view of Costa Rica from the 11th floor of the Museum a visual treat. It is best advised for you to bring a camera and your best poses.

The Jade Museum won’t be a problem if you’re coming from San Josè, as you can simply ask the locals for directions. Adults will have to pay for 500 colon, which is around a dollar. The place opens from Mondays to Fridays at 8:00 A.M and closes at 4:30 P.M., but you can simply dedicate an hour or so to see and enjoy the entire Museum.
