Post New Topic

Is San Jose overrun with Gringos as either residents or tourists from North America, Europe, etc.?

I know San Jose is not the showcase for tourism like other parts of the country. So I am hoping it will less Gringo heavy than other parts of CR?

I have traveled to numerous other Latin American countries. Conversational in Spanish, etc.

I am considering a trip to San Jose. I have always avoided Costa Rica thinking it won't have that same vibe of being one of the only North Americans around.

I am looking to enjoy the city for culture, nightlife, etc. I am NOT a sex tourist at all. But I also hope to meet some nice Ticas while I am there.

Thanks for any input.
