Free cultural tours of San José on Wednesday
In honor of the mid-year vacations being observed in public schools across the country, a number of San José museums, art galleries and cultural centers will open their doors Wednesday evening as part of a city tour.
Titled “Vacaciones en Chepe,” the free activities will last from 5-9 p.m. at 18 different locations in San José’s Amón, Otoya, Escalante and La Sabana neighborhoods.
The Culture Ministry will participate with events at the Museum of Costa Rican Art, the National Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, the Museum Calderón Guardia, and the Cultural Heritage Center.
“This is a good vacation plan, where culture is once again the protagonist,” said Henry Bastos, director of GAM Cultural, the San José-based organization in charge of the Art City Tour.
Among the highlights of “Vacaciones en Chepe” are a historical tour of the city, a mixology class, and a nighttime after-party at Rabbit Hole in Barrio La California.
The event includes suggested routes for bikers, walkers and bus-takers.
GAM Cultural has organized Art City Tours in San José since February 2010 and has welcomed more than 108,000 people across its 57 previous iterations.
