Additional Location Information

San Antonio de Escazú is part of the popular upscale suburb of Escazú, on the western side of the capital city of San José. We are 4,600 feet above sea level (1,424 mts), so the temperature is usually around 72 degrees. Because Escazú is beautiful, convenient, and upscale, it is home to many of the Costa Rica's wealthier expatriates. Our house is in the more rural, mountainous part of this suburb - so you get beautiful countryside and city conveniences at the same time.

Ask for my google map to local attractions. The nearest supermarket and restaurant, is one mile away; ATM, post office and center of Escazú is 3 miles away; International airport is 15 miles; the hospital is 5.5 miles; largest mall in the country 5 miles.

Things to do in the neighborhood:
Stroll within our 12 acre property, either on the cement driveway or further afield.
The hike up to the Alajuelita Cross has spectacular views of the city, a flat part for beginners and a steeper part for people who would like more challenge.
Pico Tours offers private and group guided hikes up this mountain and others in the area.
Gerardo Montoya offers tours of his traditional mask making shop.
You can rent an hour on a "Ceragem" massage bed nearby, or we can set up an appointment with Barbara Adams, a certified English speaking masseuse.
