San Jose is the capital of Costa Rica. In Jurassic Park, Dennis Nedry met with Lewis Dodgson in a cafe here to get his payment for stealing the dinosaur embryos for Dodgson's company Biosyn. A helicopter also made a brief stop here to pick up Nedry.


  • San Jose is inaccurately portrayed in the movies by being an oceanside city. In real life, San Jose is in the middle of Costa Rica, far from the oceans!
  • San Jose can easily be identified as it is the only major land-locked city in Costa Rica, and is completely surrounded by mountains from all angles.
