The Holiday Inn Express San José Costa Rica Airport is about one mile east of Juan Santamaría Airport in the capital city of San José. The hotel offers a complimentary, 24-hour airport shuttle and a free breakfast buffet to welcome you. For business travelers, the free Wi-Fi is a must-have. However, even if you are traveling on business, take some time to enjoy the hotel pool and the attractions of San José and Alajuela.

The hotel's 100 guestrooms are clean and well-appointed, the perfect place to relax during your downtime. When you're not in your room, you should be in the pool or out exploring the city. There is a free shuttle to the City Mall, where you can do some shopping, people watching or just have dinner with friends and family. If you prefer to walk, you can get there in about half an hour.

In fact, there are several fascinating places within walking distance of the Holiday Inn Express. At the Museo Juan Santamaría (about a 30-minute walk) you can learn about the national hero for whom the airport is named. If you walk to Central Park, or Parque Central de Alajuela (also about a 30-minute walk from the hotel), you can easily get to the Alajuela Cathedral or the Teatro Municipal.

At the end of the day, take advantage of the 24-hour room service, work out in the on-site gym, take advantage of the laundry facilities or get some work done in the business center. Alternatively, relax in the pool, in front of the TV or with a copy of the newspaper, which you can pick up for free in the lobby. The next morning, your day starts all over with the complimentary hot breakfast buffet, where you'll find not only familiar foods like omelets and fresh fruit, but also local Costa Rican favorites such as tamales or gallo pinto.

Depending on the nature of your trip and your plans for the immediate future, you may decide to make use of the extended parking plan or the luggage storage service. There may be a surcharge for these services, but it is worth it because of the peace of mind you'll have knowing your vehicle and bags are in a safe place.
