Multiplaza

Reviewed By Paul H - Southampton, United Kingdom

We spend an hour there, just walking around, having lunch, and going to the supermarket. It was fairly big with a lot of USA branded shops. The food court was the same with one or two local outlets. The supermarket Auto Mercado was there too. We found things somewhat expensive especially the wines. There was a cinema there too. There were not that too many people there too.

Yoga Massage Therapy

Through fine technique and special ingredients your body will be exfoliated, massaged, and stretched through an invigorating session. This massage contains all of the ancient oriental knowledge and will guide you into body awareness, detox, and deep relaxation.

Reviewed By TheIrishFella - dublin and all over

I was in need of a really good massage and I used trip advisor to make my decision for me. Nyree replied quickly to my query and we arranged an appointment. When I arrived I was given a three page questionnaire to fill out which gave me some reassurance that this was a good professional outfit.
I had a quick shower at the venue and then the massage began. I almost immediately felt completely safe as I was massaged and manipulated into various positions. Afterwards there was a nice warm ginger drink available and nyree kindly took the time to answer some of my questions.
This is a case of something being expensive for a very valid reason and is certainly worth more than any number of mediocre massages.

Teatro Nacional Costa Rica

Since 1897, this elegant theater has been a source of pride.

Reviewed By Prawet J - Washington DC, District of Columbia

I did not have a chance to see inside of the National Theater but just the lobby and the outside. The Teatro Nacional Costa Rica is situated in the heart of the busy old town San Jose. The plaza in front of the building is very lively with a lot activities. According to the history, the Theater was built in 19th Century for performing art purpose and is considered the finest historic building in the country. It is worth stopping by for photos.

Refugio Herpetologico de Costa Rica

Reviewed By Jamie B - Jacksonville, Florida

Tour guide was amazing, he knew every animal's story about their injury and how they got to the refuge. The animals were amazing and this project sure could use more funding. We enjoyed every minute! There were only two of us and we were made to feel like they were expecting us and that they were there to answer our questions.

Reviewed By robert g - Los Angeles, California

I have been attending Krama Yoga studio for nearly four years. It offers many diverse classes, including vinyassa flow, hot yoga, children's yoga, senior yoga, and others at all levels. The instructors all speak English as well as Spanish, and are conscious of the needs of the individual yogini. I am 66 yrs. old, but attending their classes regularly, I feel 20 years younger! Thank you Esteban, Juanka, David, Ana Christina, Gustavo, Jose Maria, and all the wonderful instructors at Krama. When in Escazu, take a class, feel great! I highly recommend the studio for travelers who need to stretch and move! Namaste. Pura Vida!

Galeria Namu

Galeria Namu is a fair trade art gallery for local and indigenous artists from Costa Rica and surrounding Central America countries. Established in 1998 at this same location, visitors to Costa Rica's capital city of San Jose can find us easily behind the Holiday Inn (across from Parque Morazan).Knowledge and passion for the artists and their work is what makes a visit to Galeria Namu special; the owner, Aisling, and her son Conall, along with their support staff love to share with visitors the background of the tribe or individual artisans and the remarkable collection of unique and very special pieces available for purchase. For the past 15 years, Galeria Namu has nurtured a relationship with the artists who create folk art, gold and jade replicas, handwoven baskets, originals paintings, tagua carvings and jewelry and much more. Visit the website for hours and a sampling of what you will encounter. Be prepared to catch their enthusiasm for fair trade with these local arts and crafts.

Reviewed By Peytonsage - Barrie, Canada

This was our second trip here and once again we were impressed by many of the items offered for sale. The baskets are such high quality crafts and it's nice to see that many of the indigenous communities they come from are identified. They also have some great reproductions of many of the pre-Columbian artifacts you see in the Gold and Jade Museums. Not your usual souvenir shop!

Museo de Arte Costarricense

This museum displays works by local artists.

Reviewed By Rachel Z

It's a tiny art museum but it's free. The museum was repurposed from an airport terminal, which renders a sense of history for this museum - reminds me of Musee D'orsay! Pretty amazing collection of Latin artwork! Took an hour to finish viewing all the pieces of artwork. Then it's a good idea to take a walk in the La Sabana Park which is right behind the museum.
