Stories about San José

Music on the Avenida

Updated: Jun 26, 2018

This group of old guys regularly get together to play music on Avenida Central, the super-busy pedestrian-only street in San José, Costa Rica.  They play for tips from people walking by, and they sell CD’s of their music.  They are all very talented and they play a mix of traditional and modern Latin music.  The guy with the blue hat is playing a homemade bass guitar, and he sings great.  


San Jose is a city full of surprises. It's all part of The Real San Jose.
