Central Park - Just a three-minute walk from the hotel, San Jose's Central Park is a small square with a beautiful gazebo that was donated by Anastasio Somoza, a former Nicaraguan dictator. The park is a gorgeous little green space that is perfect for relaxing and observing the local culture. Bring your favorite book or a picnic lunch to sit next to the fountain or the statues dotting the area.

Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto - Located within a 12-minute walk of the hotel, Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto is the perfect spot to visit if you love football, aka soccer in America. The large arena is a local landmark that is fun to explore even when there isn't a game going on, but definitely catch a game if you can.

Zoo Ave - Less than five miles from the hotel, you'll find Zoo Ave. Employees at the zoo spend their time educating visitors about the importance of local wildlife as well as breeding endangered animals and preparing them or release into the wild. The hope is that they will naturally repopulate the area. The animal rescue houses peacocks and a range of other birds and animals in their natural habitats. This is the perfect family-friendly day trip.

"My wife and I did not have reservations so we asked the taxi driver at the airport for a good clean place. He took us to Hotel Pacande. It was a great central location in Alajuela for a reasonable price. Later we asked for longer term stay and we were offered the Pacande B&B by the coffee plantations and on the route to the volcano. We had a bedroom above the main house with private bath. Our hosts were the most friendly and the most helpful. After our travels around Costa Rica we arranged to stay again with our hosts at Hotel Pacande. We still remember them as family. Our next trip to Costa Rica will specify Hotel Pacande as our first choice."
