Airport Hotel San Jose

by Dutch1980

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know a good Hotel close to the San Jose Airport.
On my way home from Costa Rica I have an early flight in the morning. And after a month of backpacking I want a goodnight rest before my flight. So no budgethotel for the last night...
But also no Hilton :) just a place close to the airport where I can have a good night of sleep...

Thanks for you help,

Orquideas Inn is about 15 minutes from the airport. Ask for one of the better rooms away from the road for a good night sleep. A fun place. There is a Hampton Inn if you just want a place to sleep. It is about 5 minutes from the airport and offers free shuttles. Pura Vida hotel.

I recommend Coconut House in Alajuela, 10 minutes by taxi from the airport. Last year I payed about 20 $ for a single and when I stayed there with husband and 2 kids it was about 50 $, german style breakfast included. Nice owners from Germany with big dog called Goliath.

Try La Guaria Inn in Alajuela (#: (506) 440-2948). It was a $2 taxi ride from the airport, and $40 a night. Nice people, its very clean and safe, close to lots of food/markets/bars, and actually has a nice private pool.

Hello All,

Thanks for all your answers I looked to every Hotel... but at the end I chose a hostel in the centre that will pick me up from the Airport to.
I have to take an early bus in San Jose the next morning so I looked close to the busstations...

But nevertheless thanks for your reactions

Travel Tips for San José

Santa Ana & Escazú

by besbel

Santa Ana is the area where I was lodged during my trip. It was green all around! Next to my hotel (the Comfort Inn) there was a Pizza Hut and a Rostipollos (where I used to go all nights), and a free shuttle that used to take us in 3-5 minutes to Multiplaza Mall, in Escazú, next to Centro Empresarial Forum. Over there you could find anything for entertaining: cinemas, shops, restaurants, grocery stores ,etc.
Santa Ana is located near 30 minutes from downtown San José (by bus) or 15 by taxi (around 2500-3000 colones per ride) I miss the Rostipollos! :) Not only trying their Central American specialities, but also chatting with my bunch of friends around the table. Also miss the Multiplaza's cinema, where I came to see "The Crime of Father Amaro" with some friends.

Zip line -gliding on steel cables from tree top .

by sfphototraveller

I also took a zip line tour. They have many One of the well known one is
they have the tallest,fastest zip line so far.
Your strapped in and glide on steel cables from one side to the other side.
The cables are about tree height from 50 yards or more.
Lots of fun. Most Hotels offer a couple different ones.

Estación del Pacifico - Pacific Train Station

by penumbra

This train station was built by the Costa Rican government to connect San Jose to the towns of Caldera , Puntarenas and their harbors. Although not in regular service the line has recently been reopened for regular tours organized by the Tico Train Tour Corp. The train uses 1940 coaches to travel through villages offering views of jungle scenery.

Address: Avenida 20 - Calle 2

Comfortable tourist bus

by mim95

There are two comapnies that offer scheduled van services to tourists - Greyline and Interbus. They are at least 20 times more expansive than public transportation, but has air conditioning and takes you door-to-door. Depending on how far you are travelling, the price ranges from US$5 to US$30. There are also private van service if you want to travel at a different time from the schedule - for over US$100!

Good daily special

by easterntrekker about Altimira

Alot of restaurants have a " plate of the day" . It usually includes soup , dinner, and dessert . The one at Altimira is really good and its in at dinnertime too ( not just lunch) . Really friendly wait staff and good location right on Central Ave...the pedestrian only area. The grilled fish was really nice .
