Located Beyond Ciudad Colón is the mountain town of Santiago de Puriscal. The cool mountain climate with its clean air, magnificent views and relaxed rural character are the main appeal of this area.

It is perfect for people seeking affordable housing, more land for their money and country living. Some properties offer spectacular views of both the ocean and Central Valley.  Foreigners also choose Puriscal for both convenience and ambiance. 

This picturesque area  is within easy reach of the most modern conveniences and services in Costa Rica. Many who live in Puriscal commute daily to San José since bus service is good. Thirty  minutes away is The Escazu/Santa Ana area offers a state-of-the-art, USA affiliated medical center, the largest mall in Costa Rica, and lots of quality restaurants. With the new road being built from Ciudad Colon to Caldera, driving time to Santa Ana and Escazú will be dramatically reduced and the Pacific coast will be within a one hour drive. While the beaches are beautiful, most people feel that the perpetual spring climate of this area is more comfortable to live in than the increase heat and humidity at the beach.

There are new homes for sale in the area but the only development is Orchid Point Estates in San Antonio de Puriscal.
