About the neighbourhood
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.
