QCOSTARICA – Does your San José (Costa Rica) look like the photo published on the History Channel? No? Maybe you’ve been living in the wrong San Jose. Or could the History Channel be wrong?

Promoting San Jose as “the starting point for adventure” and highlighting destinations like Jade Museum and the Plaza de la Cultura and even mentioning Gallo Pinto in the text, the History Channel used the wrong photo.  See the History Channel page here from April 27, 2016.

Thousands commented on the Facebook post for a correction, but hours later after it appeared the History Channelhad not responded.

The image used in the post is of the bay of San Jose, California, which is on sale on Shutterstock, a website that sells stock illustrative images.

Interestingly the History Channel is not the first, and probably won’t be the last, to use the wrong image. In 2105, Food and Travel Mexico made the mistake. Similarly, Mexico’s El Economista newspaper, used the same photo in the travel between Mexico City and San Jose (Costa Rica) article.
