Best way to travel to Jaco from Escazu ?

Is there a bus that stops to pick-up passengers from Escazu to take them to Jaco ?

Or do you have to travel downtown San Jose to catch the bus ?

Or any other suggestions ?

I will be staying at the Courtyard for 2 weeks in July for dental work with a side trip to Jaco to visit friends for a few days.

Can anyone suggest things to do in Escazu, restaurants you liked or any night life in the area for a young 60 yr. old single guy to pass the time ?

Please see my posting regarding restaurants in Escazu.Also,near the Multiplaza Mall(which is near the courtyard)there are so many good places to eat.We are your age,and Masala has music on some nights.Theres another mall-Itzkazu Mall-across from Multiplaza,that alot of Americans hang out.Im pretty sure theres clubs there-I did see a Hooters Bar there,if thats your thing.Nearby in SantaAna-by the Momentum Mall-theres some cool bars and clubs.As for going to Jaco,we rented a car,took the new Highway,it only took a little over an hour.Have fun.If you have any other questions,feel free to email me.

I agree with the above Poster 100%. Itzkatzu Plaza is just across the street from Cima Hospital in Escazu. Itzkatzu Plaza is more or less a mall of bars and restaurants. One of my favorites is the Tapas restaurant.

To go to Jaco from Escazu...maybe the best and more affordable way...shutlle service...like INTERBUS or Grayline...some times getting into San Jose is just not worth it...

If you like Italian food...Sala E´Pepe in Escazu by Pops ice creams...incredible good italian place...his owner Renso is a great person...I practice my italian with him...he just laugh ...
