Sabana park during an ordinary day

General information about Sabana

The famous Parque Metropolitano La Sabana is one of the most well-known locations on the west side of San Jose. Sabana Park was Costa Rican’s international airport until 1955 and after that used only for small aircraft.

Around 1978, La Sabana was turned into a 180-acre park with sports facilities and remodeled several times. These sports facilities include a skating rink, soccer fields, a swimming pool and the national soccer stadium. In addition, many native trees were planted and two beautiful lakes were created.

The park is used by more than 30,000 visitors a week without having to pay any entry to use most of the facilities.

The old national stadium was demolished and replaced in 2010 by a new stadium for 35,000 people. The contract was a donation from the Chinese government and used mainly for soccer matches and also for concerts.

The control tower of the former airport was turned into the museum of Costa Rican arts.

Sabana Park is the lung of San Jose

La Sabana is often recognized by Costa Ricans as “the lung of San José“. When living in this area you realize everything is close but surprisingly quiet. There are many older and well built one-story homes on many private streets around Sabana. You will also find many apartments from groups of 2 or 3 to a building of 30 units. There are also many cute dead-end streets with private homes.

All sorts of buildings and some very reasonable apartments are for rent around Sabana Park. The slump in the rest of the world has not affected La Sabana. Now, there are some good deals in large condos in high rises, even penthouses under $500,000. However, there are many smaller condos available.

Sabana North condominiums and ICE building

A taxi ride from San Jose is only about $7. Travel to both airports is very convenient also. Who wouldn’t want to buy San Jose real estate?
