La Sabana Park

Being the biggest and, some would argue, the only city in Costa Rica, San José urban atmosphere can become overwhelming. Known as "the lungs of San José", La Sabana park just west of downtown provides the much needed change of scenery. Families flock here for Sunday picnics. It's a great place to exercise and breath fresh air, with walking trails and a lake. Thick tree canopies will keep you dry in the rain and cool under the sun.
