Hotels in San Jose

With a pleasant climate and temperate weather, San Jose province enjoys mild to moderate temperatures throughout the year, hovering around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This near perfect weather thus makes the San Jose province one of the most populated in Costa Rica.

San José is nestled high in the Central Valley (1,253 meters/3,770 feet), between green volcanic mountain ranges; the metropolitan city is oriented east and west, surrounded by suburbs that cling to the gentle foothills. The nearby town of Escazú, southwest of the city off the autopista, is home to the largest population of North Americans living in Costa Rica, either full-time or part-time, and is consequently more upscale than San José’s downtown or other suburbs.

Unlike other Central American capitals, San José is not a very colonial city, although the heart of the historic center features several beautiful old buildings: National Theater, Plaza de la Cultura, Parque Central, the Cathedral and Gold Museum, which are centered in a four block area with a long pedestrian-only shopping walkway bisecting the middle of downtown.

As the cultural heart of the nation, San José is also home to several theater groups, excellent museums, parks, a national symphony, cinemas and universities. It is also host to nightclubs, casinos, discos and fine restaurants. Residents of San José are known as Josefinos.

Today, tourists can find a multitude of organized tours available from San Jose. Accommodations in the San Jose Region are not a problem, as everything of interest is within a three hour drive of San Jose. Don’t worry about countryside lodgings, as there are plenty of wonderful hotels and hostelries in San Jose City.
