Where is Rohrmoser

In the 1960’s, the Rohrmoser family originally developed the coffee field on the west side of San Jose and started to sell Rohrmoser real estate. And it was 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 neighborhoods such as

  • La Favorita,
  • La Geroma,
  • Roma Oeste,
  • Jardines de Rohrmoser
  • Triángulo.

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 Costa Ricans. Ticos do not appreciate a garden, as well as most foreigners, do because of their culture. In addition to single-family homes, 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. Families had only one car when those houses were built. Most homes in San Jose real estate are outdated. Therefore most will need some TLC. Tell your realtor about your requirements for 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. As a result, the building is now used as the National Center for High Technology Dr. Franklin Chang Diaz (CENAT).
