A new guide book focuses on downtown San José. The book, available in paperback and electronic format is “The Real San José.”
Author Michael Miller said in an announcement that he wrote the book to introduce new arrivals to Costa Rica’s capital. It tells visitors what they need to know to get their feet on the ground and to start enjoying this exciting city, he said.
In addition to being the nation’s capital and its largest city, San José has a rich history and is a thriving center for culture, the arts and entertainment, he notes, adding that the city is the home to live theater, the national symphony orchestra, and scores of art galleries.
It features world-class museums, cathedrals, universities, fine public buildings and beautiful vintage homes, he said.
“The Real San José” has 25 photographs along with a foldout map of downtown.
Miller said he believes that the more one knows about San José, the more someone will see the tremendous variety of attractions it has to offer to anyone here for a couple of days or to someone thinking about relocating here.
Miller said he has been visiting San José since the 1980s and has made it his mission to discover all that the city has to offer. He served in the U.S. Navy and is a Vietnam veteran.
The book is available at Amazon/Kindle and other popular E-book vendors and in Costa Rica, a printed paperback version is available at the office of the Association of Residents of Costa Rica and in hotel lobbies, restaurants and other locations, Miller said.
