City Express San José Costa Rica is located just north of San José’s historic center and only 15 minutes from the Juan Santamaría International Airport.


If your trip involves a stop at the Zona Franca Metro Park or Zona Franca América, don’t hesitate to stay with us. City Express is less than two miles from these major industrial areas and the city’s convention centers.


Costa Rica is known for its ecotourism. So if you really want to make your trip unforgettable, explore some of the nearby forests and beaches. We recommend you also head to La Paz Natural Park to see the famous La Paz waterfall.


Another place to include in your itinerary is La Selva Verde, or the green jungle. It’s a two-hour drive from City Express, and definitely worth the trip. The tropical jungle is home to exotic animals and stunning plants and flowers.


If you have the time, head to the Volcán Irazú National Park. The Irazú Volcano is still active, although its last major eruption was in the 1960s. The park has a myriad of walking trails, picnic areas, and places to eat. And take advantage of the spectacular view of the valley from the top of the volcano!


Stay at City Express San José Costa Rica, and see why this lively country is full of “pura vida.”
