Coronado location

The city of Coronado, or Vásquez de Coronado, is a small city on the north side of San Jose, at an elevation of 1,385 meters (4,543 feet). Coronado is often compared to the Swiss Alps and there is a lot of reference to these Swiss mountains in local products, neighborhoods, and condominiums. Coronado has a population of around 60,000.

Coronado cooler climate

Coronado is one of those special places in Costa Rica where you’ll love to have a fireplace. But, I’m warning you: there is never any snow, so leave your ski’s at home.

The cooler nights will oblige you to sleep with a blanket. AND, you will find a variety of sweaters in every home in Coronado, which is very rare in Costa Rica.

Actually, if you are looking to buy a sweater in Costa Rica, you won’t find many choices in the local stores. That’s because we’re only a little over 7,000 miles from the Equator. We have a tropical climate. That’s why living in Coronado, at lower temperatures, is so different than elsewhere in the Central Valley.

Country life

For those who enjoy country life and dairy products, living in Coronado is a fantastic option. There are many dairy farms in the upper areas of Patio de Agua, El Rodeo, and Las Nubes de Coronado. The Coope Coronado dairy factory is just outside downtown.

If you would like to get a good feel for the local food in Coronado, I invite you to visit La Antigua Lechería or the Old Dairy Farm in Patio de Agua or Mirador Rancho Samaná.

Wining & dining or even a quick bite is also attractive for those living in Coronado. Apart from Antigua Lecheria, you will find US style steaks and local cuisine all over Coronado.
