Escazu is a busy town of approximately 15,000 people about 10 minutes west of San Jose. It is one of the wealthiest places in Costa Rica, with many restaurants and shops, and a major shopping mall. One of the top hospitals in the country, an internationally accredited CIMA hospital, is also there, along with other health care and dental facilities. Escazu has seen an influx of foreigners in recent years, to enjoy its climate, restaurants and shops, scenic views, and proximity to services (banks, health care, entertainment). Property values are significantly higher in the ‘Beverly Hills of Costa Rica’.
The western suburbs are preferred by many because of their proximity to San Jose, the services and shopping available, health care facilities, the scenic views, and springtime-like weather, while still being about an hour from the Pacific beaches.
