The Juan Santamaria International Airport is the main airport of Costa Rica. Its located in the Central Valley and is where most flights from around the world arrive.
The Central Valley is a great destination for those who want to do a short visit to the country but get to see a lot by doing one day tours and not moving from hotel to hotel.
From the central valley you can visit volcanoes, different types of rainforest, adventure tours, cultural tours, spa, beaches, eco-tours, leisure... and many more.
Another important factor of the area is the wide variety of hotel options. From 5 star hotels to small boutique hotels, from those located right downtown San Jose to those on more rural areas.
Also if you select a Hotel like Holiday Inn Escazu you will have a
lot of restaurants, shops, theater and cinema on walking distance.
The Holiday Inn Escazu specializes on a good night sleep on vary comfortable beds and a good healthy breakfast to start the day. And this specific hotel has an amazing location.
The Central Valley can also be a first and last night location if what you are looking for is to travel around the country. There are various routes we can recommend.
Either way this area is great for families with babies, toodlers, kids or teenagers.
