Hi Brijette,

You wil enjoy Costa Rica. Your location at San Jose will give you access to several places; by instance: you can do some day trips to places like volcanoes (The Irazu or Poas are close and beautiful)
You can also go on the weekend to the beach -the Guanacaste are is amazing! or go to the north at San Carlos and the volcan Arenal and the hot water springs.

At the city you can go to the museums and certainly there are a lot of places to have fun. The city is safe, but there are some areas that you will want to avoid (I can give you a list of places).

If you need further help, drop me a line or contact me by msn.

Best regards,
Gerardo
