Welcome to Chepe!

The first thing you need to know is that nobody that is from San José calls it San José; we call it Chepe. Chepe was the warm way to refer to people who´s first name was Jose; hence, Chepe is how we affectionately refer to our capital.

Who are we?

We are a group of people that live and love Chepe and want to share some of the cool spots that we´ve discovered through the years. We are meant to be a resource for the young traveler in San Jose. Here you will find recommendations from locals who want to help other fellow travelers to make the most out of Chepe. Carpe Chepe!


Here you will find recommendations about places to eat, drink, visit or stay at. However, nobody pays to be “announced” on this site. We will only include here what we think is worth recommending. As you can see we´re currently under construction but come back soon to check out what we have to share. Believe us, we´ve been around enough to recommend a thing or two.
