The Central Valley of Costa Rica is home to the majority of the population and the capital city of San Jose. The San Jose Airport SJO is Costa Rica's busiest airport and most Costa Rica Vacations or business comes in and out of the Central Valley.
The Central Valley is located at 3,000ft above sea-level and is surrounded by Poas, Irazu, and Barva Volcanoes and mountains. The three main cities that make up the Central Valley of Costa Rica are Alajuela, Heredia, and San Jose. All of these cities are home to many different hotels that provide different options when looking for lodging during any type of Costa Rica Adventure.
If you want to be in the city where all the hustle and bustle is you can find places in the center of San Jose and if you are looking to be on the outskirts of the Central Valley looking down at a high elevation with perfect cool mountain weather then you can also find lodging that fits. Large hotels for conferences to small hotels for a Costa Rica honeymoon package are all found in the Central Valley. If you are looking to dine and shop in style, some of the finest restaurants and shops in the Americas are in the Escazu area and within walking distance of world class hotels. Most of your hotels in the Central Valley can offer day trips via car or in-county flights or being in the center is often an advantage as you can get to almost any part of the country in less than a days travel through Sansa or NatureAir or making the drives outside of the valley. The tours from the area are day tours to the beaches, cloudforest, Costa Rica ziplining, Costa Rica whitewater rafting, or the many different volcano craters Costa Rica has easy access to.
