Visitor Information -- Escazú News ★★ ( is an excellent bilingual resource for information on the Escazú and Santa Ana areas. The site has forums, classified ads, maps, restaurant reviews, real estate info, and general advice on the area.

Orientation -- Both Escazú and Santa Ana are former farming towns that have been swallowed up by metro San José’s urban sprawl. Each has a small downtown core built around an old church, with ever-expanding rings of residential and commercial development radiating off this core. Both also have numerous little satellite towns, such as San Antonio de Escazú, San Rafael de Escazú, and Pozos de Santa Ana.
