The Perfect Location
San Jose is the best place to start your vacation in Costa Rica because it is in the center of the country so you can easley plan your tours to the national parks, volcans or beaches located in the central valley, the pacific, the atlantic, the north plains or the southern jungles.
Grand Hotel Costa Rica is the only hotel in Costa Rica declared as a architectural-historic landmark by the costa rican government. It is located in the heart of the city of San Jose between national monuments, historical landmarks, squares, parks, museums, shops and pedestrian streets. It is vivid during the day but quiet during the night because no streets with vehicles surround the hotel.
