The population of Downtown San Jose is 346,799, though the metropolitan area stretches beyond the town limits and comprises a third of the country’s population. San Jose put forth a strong influence on a wider range because of its proximity to minor cities (Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago) and the country’s demographic assemblage in the Central Valley.
