Gym, and Bowling Lanes, and Movie Theater Multiplex, and just minutes walk from taxis, buses, and the pick up locations for most one-day tours from San Jose.

                      The condo is located a few minutes walk from Plaza Real Carari Mall, just off Hwy 1 Expressway, less than 10 minutes east of San Jose International Airport & a bit more than 10 minutes north west of downtown San Jose.

                      It's a great location where great day tours leave from, to enjoy a day Tropical White Water Rafting, visiting the National Parks, Volcanos (Irazu & Poas), Nature Reserves, Coffee Plantations, Crocodiles, and so much more! From this location you are just minutes walk from where you can easily be picked up and dropped off from your Costa Rica excursions.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are travel planning professionals. Honest & Client/Value Focused

                      Why the Owner Chose San Jose:
                      We scoped out the area for years, and listened to our countless clients who asked for more than a hotel room, but a condo with two bedrooms and two washrooms, and something really nice to relax in, with good technology and high end furnishings, in a very safe area but not isolated like most apartments requiring a car, without inner city pollution, with good views of green Costa Rica, but also within walking distance of restaurants & grocery stores, gyms, movie theaters, and entertainment & bars to be within walking distance. And they also asked for free pick up from their lodging for day excursions. Before even posting the listing on Homeaway, we already had almost solid bookings for the first two months.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      You don't need to spend 60+ dollars a day on a rental car when you stay in this amazing new condo. You can walk or take $2 taxis to everything you need. And nice direct buses take you to the airport & into down town San Jose Capital. And so many day tours/excursions can be booked leaving and returning to this condo location or nearby.
