San Jose, officially the Municipality of San Jose, is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Tarlac, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 36,253 people.[3]

It was created into a municipality pursuant to RA 6842, ratified on April 21, 1990; taken from the municipality of Tarlac City. It is also the largest municipality of the province in terms of land area.

The Eco-Tourism park and Monasterio de Tarlac is located at Barangay Lubigan. The monastery holds a relic of the Holy Cross and is the only one known to possess such in Asia. The monastery's height is at approximately 300 meters. A deep portion of the Tarlac River which was unaffected by lahar still exists, and for a fee of about 20 pesos, depending on the owner, a visitor can go for a traditional balsa or bamboo raft ride. The Jeepney ride from central terminal in Tarlac City costs about 50 pesos to Barangay Villa Aglipay which is so expensive and crowded in the jeeney. The first trip leaves at around 10:00 a.m and the last trip leaves at around 7:00 p.m. From the drop point, about three people can pay for a tricycle ride to the monastery at an agreed cost since not all vehicles are capable of getting there and they dont want to go there without paying an expensive amount of 500 pesos.
