Where is Rohrmoser

In the 1960’s, the Rohrmoser family originally developed the coffee field on the west side of San Jose and finished in the eighties. Rohrmoser was one of the very first master planned subdivisions on the west side of San Jose.

The first part of the subdivision was called Nunciatura, and rapidly developed by the local business community. Also, Nunciatura offers some very nice parks and larger upscale older homes. The name Nunciatura was used because the Pope’s representative, “El Nuncio” has its home there. Also former President Oscar Arias lives in this area.

The second part of Rohrmoser, legally called Pavas, starts where the freeway that goes from Escazu to the highway to the airport cuts right through it. Those coffee fields were developed in a well organized middle class residential area in the 70’s and 80’s. Only the two main boulevards are commercial San Jose real estate and this area offers the Plaza Mayor Mall built in 1983 and extended in 1990. The Rohrmoser Mall and some other but smaller strip malls also offer great commercial options. These malls have plenty of shopping opportunities.

Along the main street in Pavas there are many great bars including Van Gogh, Tragaldabas and Kabanas. Also Paseo Colon, which is home to clubs and bars such as Vertigo, Lebanon and Rhapsodia, is just a short ride away. Also, behind the ring road, you will find the La Favorita, La Geroma, Roma Oeste, Jardines de Rohrmoser and Triángulo neighborhoods. Additionally, you will find the US embassy, the German school ( Humboldt Schule) and the British School there.

Homes in Rohrmoser

Most homes in the Rohrmoser and Pavas area offer very small gardens because they were mainly built by Costaricans. Ticos do not appreciate a garden as well as most foreigners do because of their culture. The area also offers many apartment buildings.

Rohrmoser has various neighborhoods:

  • Nunciatura
  • La Favorita
  • Santa Catalina
  • Jardines
  • Roma del Oeste
  • Triángulo

Carports of Rohrmoser homes have only space for one car. The reason is that families had only one car when those houses were built. Most homes in San Jose real estate are outdated and will need some TLC. Tell your realtor about your requirements of a large garden, a garage for 2 cars or more.

For many years the Agency for International Development (AID) had its offices there. AID donated the building to the Costa Rican government and is now the National Center of High Technology Dr. Franklin Chang Diaz (CENAT).
