San Jose’s city streets are filled with boundless energy. Mountains encircle the city and create the elegant valley that captures the sunlight. La Sabana Metropolitan Park is filled with seasoned men and women reading newspapers on the bench-lined walkways. Groups of boys play soccer on fields of trimmed grass, wearing jerseys that proudly support their favorite local and international players.
Arrive at your elegant downtown hotel. Your hotel is filled with the charm of historic local families and a hacienda décor. In the neighborhood of Escazú you can find a juxtaposition of a traditional Costa Rican village pressing against an affluent suburban area. The center of the neighborhood remains relaxed and peaceful. The area sits on the hillside and watches over the city’s meandering streets. Humble homes offer remarkable views of the 18th century church Iglesia Escazú. The church contains a tremendous ceramic baroque altar that shines like a jewel on a humble crown.
