Since San Jose International Airport is the bigger of the two international airports in Costa Rica, there’s a good chance that you’ll be flying in and out of there. Majority of tourists don’t stay in San Jose for the whole duration of their trip, some of them stay in the city for a day or two and most land and leave straight away.
Whether you’re staying in San Jose or not, you might need to stay there for at least the night before your flight out.
You can choose to stay in San Jose or Alajuela for the closest proximity to the airport and there are a handful of hotels in and around the airport such as the Holiday Inn and the Marriot. However, if you want to make your last night in Costa Rica just as special as the rest of your vacation, there is one hotel in particular that keeps the pura vida spirit alive and well.
The Property and Rooms
The hotel is located in a quiet part of San Jose near Los Arcos and about a 10-15 minute drive to the airport. From first glance, the hotel doesn’t look very big from the outside but as soon as you step in, you’ll be surprised.
With a large infinity pool, restaurant & bar, garden/pond area, business space, sitting area and a gym, this hotel has all the amenities and features of a high end resort without the feel of one.
Instead, it feels like a charming and cozy local hotel decorated to the teeth with Costa Rican paintings and photographs. All the rooms were painted by a local artist depicting some aspect of the country such as wildlife or local life.
We stayed in a standard room which came with two queen beds, a coffee maker, TV, free wireless Internet, a writing desk and chairs. Their beds were incredibly comfortable and room felt so fresh and spacious, perfect after a long drive coming from La Fortuna.
Overall Thoughts about the Adventure Inn in San Jose
We absolutely adored Adventure Inn. Not only were the rooms comfortable, but the decor of the hotel made our stay that much cozier and enjoyable. It was much more pleasant and fun to stay somewhere with more character than a chain hotel. I had a great time wandering around the hotel, looking at all the pictures.
If you need a hotel in San Jose close to the airport or the city, this hotel has everything you need and more for a wonderful stay. You’ll get your last dose of pura vida before you leave Costa Rica at the Adventure Inn!
They have free shuttles to the airport, they can book tours for you, they offer American style breakfast and their restaurant is excellent. We ate dinner there on my parent’s last night and it was delicious. Their breakfast was one of the best we’ve ever had for a boutique style hotel with more fruits than I can recognize!
