"In San Jose, we ate at the Costa Rica Beer Factory and it was in such a cute neighborhood." See More
"Hi, you can maybe check InterContinental Costa Rica at Multiplaza Mall, an IHG Hotel, Costa Rica Marriott Hotel Hacienda Belen (both are nice, central big chain hotels) or go boutique and more homy - Casa 41 (in Escazú - near Hotel Real InterContinental - these two are in a very secure and high end location - the Marriott is closer to the airport."

"We liked the Blue Monkey, it's not fancy but has a lot of character and the food was good." See More
"Algunos son Costa Rica Beer Factory y El Gaff El unico problema es que esta zona es al este de la ciudad y un taxi te puede salir un poco caro (entre $25 y $30 aprox), dependiendo de donde estes hospedado." See More
"I highly recommend Restaurante La Terrasse (French restaurant) for a nice night out and Café de los deseos, which is a hip pub where a lot of the local young people hang out." See More
"Sodas - small family run cafe's - try their version of a "Blue Plate" special." See More
