San Rafael de Escazu real estate

It almost all happens in San Rafael. Old main street has turned into what we call “the golden mile“. The golden mile is full of stores, restaurants (anything from typical Costa Rican places to Tony Romas, McDonald’s, TGIF, Outback, and others). Most noteworthy is that many new strip malls are being built almost everywhere. Also, there is the old Paco doll factory that was turned into a shopping mall. Plaza Los Laureles and Distrito Cuatro offer many fine restaurants. Also, World Gym is only one of the many gymnasiums in the area.

Escazu also offers 10 large grocery stores:

  • 3 Automercados
  • PriceSmart (membership shopping)
  • 2 Mas x Menos (Walmart)
  • Walmart
  • Saretto
  • Peri supermercados and others.

The newest commercial attractions, beside the famous Multiplaza Mall, are the Avenida Escazu and Distrito Cuatro and smaller strip malls like Metro Plaza Escazu are popping up everywhere. Because of this, Escazu is probably the fanciest shopping area of Costa Rica.

There is less rainfall in San Rafael than in other areas, which is the reason for so many foreigners to live in Escazu. The average temperature in Escazu is 80ºF (25ºC) during the daytime and 75ºF (20ºC) at night (throughout the year).

San Antonio de Escazu real estate

The quiet area of Escazu, San Antonio, is located higher up on the mountain but only a couple of minutes drive from the rest of Escazu. Also, this area is not as developed as the other areas and has a lower density, regulated by the zoning as a protection of the mountains. The rural is mixed with the city and you’ll also find mansions here and there with shacks nearby.

Especially relevant is the fact that most foreigners like living in Escazu because of the awesome views. The cooler temperatures are 70ºF during the daytime and 60ºF during night time. Also, this area does have more rainfall like all properties higher up in the mountains of Costa Rica do.
