Costa Rica Entertainment – Art City Tour, one of my favorite San José activities, continues to grow. Last year, it took 7,286 people to more than 20 cultural spaces in the city. It started in 2010, with 6,070 visitors.
Over 70% of the attendees at each edition are first-time participants, according to Henry Bastos, director of GAM Cultural and Art City Tour.
The most successful edition in 2017 was the “Noche en blanco” in which 6,813 people enjoyed over 100 activities in 35 participating spaces.
There are still some challenges, including the long rainy season that makes everyone want to stay home as well as a lack of parking near the museums. There is, however, a bus that takes guests from one spot to another free of charge.
The activity is always free, a big plus. Here are the dates for the Art City Tours of 2018:
- February 14: For the love of Chepe
- March 14: San José Unites Us
- May 9: Chepe Fashion
- July 11: Vacations in Chepe
- September 12: Chepe in the Rain
- November 16: Night in White
