On the 15th (Tue), explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Costarricense, don't miss a visit to Central Bank (Banco Central), and then take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose road trip planning site.

Vilnius, Lithuania to San Jose is an approximately 21-hour flight. You'll gain 8 hours traveling from Vilnius to San Jose due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vilnius in September, expect San Jose to be a bit warmer, temps between 32°C and 21°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to La Fortuna de San Carlos.
