San Jose – The Comforts of Costa Rica
San Jose is a city akin to its surrounding volcanic landscape. The passion and charm simmers beneath a façade of bustling activity. Locals course through Avenida Central and enjoy the elegant window displays. The clock tower ticks away the hours in its classic décor, from the metal framework that supports the clock, to the lion heads that spout water into the fountain base. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and soon you find yourself in a quaint colonial mansion that harkens back to the days of the Costa Rican coffee barons.
The exterior is decorated with rich color and ornate wood carved panels that sweep across the risen porch. Costa Rica cuisine is famous for being fresh and locally sourced. The Central Market encompasses an entire square block, filled with over 200 stalls, restaurants, and shops. Fruit stands and cevicherias offer bright and fresh dishes. The sweet aroma of passion fruit drifts around the walkways and mixes with a zesty lime citrus. The Grano de Oro Restaurant is both causal and elegant. The European styled cuisine is heavily influenced by Costa Rica’s flavors and local offerings, from the seafood to the vegetables. One taste of the Costa Rican sea bass coated with toasted macadamias and drizzled with a light orange sauce, and you will understand how enchanting the country can be.
