There's much more to do: get curious at The Houston Museum of Natural Science, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Houston Zoo, test your team's savvy at The Escape Game Houston, and explore the engaging exhibits at Children's Museum of Houston.

To see more things to do, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Houston tour planner.

San Jose
A trip to San Jose, the capital, commercial center, and cultural hub of Costa Rica, gives you a chance to experience the lively atmosphere and rich cultural past of this vibrant country.

And it doesn't end there: skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, take in the dramatic scenery at Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz, and browse the exhibits of Galeria Namu.
