NOMADAS was founded based on the idea of showing our visitors how "Pura Vida" is Costa Rica. We would like to help you with your travel arrengements, making sure the time you spend in Costa Rica is going to be one of the best of your life. The hostel is located in a traditional neighborhood called Rohrmoser, with clean and secure streets. We are very close to restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, banks, drugstores, supermarkets and the biggest park in San Jose, "Parque Matropolitano la Sabana," where you can do some jogging or just walk around. We would like to be your main point of contact in order to help you with your itinerary in Costa Rica. We have all the information you need related to tours, car rentals, national parks, museums, beaches and ecotourism.
