Escazu in Costa Rica

Escazu is another of the well worth visiting cities from the Central Valley and therefore, any tourist itinerary should include a visit to this place.

Regarding the city's busy nightlife, a variety of fine restaurants, pubs and discos can be enjoyed at Escazu. But the main attraction in this place is the stunning views of the Valley that can be admired from strategic points.

Tamarindo and Conchal in San Jose

Located only five kilometers away from San Jose, Tamarindo and Conchal, two remarkably beautiful places, are the city's most popular beaches.


In both of them it is possible to do sport fishing, to go surfing or simply to sunbathe.


Tamarindo is one of the largest beaches in the area. A wide range of tourist shops, holiday accommodation and American and European restaurants can be found here.


As the name suggests, Conchal is made up of millions of crushed shells that paint the sand bright white. The rich turquoise blue water is another of the beaches' main features.

La Sabana Metropolitan Park in San Jose

Also known as "the lung of San Jose", La Sabana Metropolitan Park covers an area of seventy two hectares and is located only fifteen minutes away from San Jose city.


Due to the high importance this park has for local tourism, reforestation had to take place a few years ago and the park was planted with new pine trees and eucalyptus.


This park is home to a number of excellent sports facilities, including the National Football Stadium, where wonderful concerts are held occasionally, and the National Fitness Center. Also, the Museum of Costa Rican Art can be visited in this park.


During weekdays, dedicated joggers can be spotted getting their mid-day exercise in the athletics track under the pine trees and near the manmade lake as well as busy workers who enjoy taking a walk through the park along the snaking paths.


An Olympic swimming pool can be found in the park also, where members of the business sector take a swim to relax and future athletes train every day.
