Generalities:
The city lies at an elevation of 1,101 meters above sea level on the northeast slopes of the Cerros de Escazú, 9 kilometers west of the national capital city of San José. The climate is moist tropical: it is not unknown for Escazú to experience rainfall on a day in which San José is dry and sunny. November and December frequently bring high winds.
A Modern City:
Escazú is one of the wealthiest places in Costa Rica, with many expensive restaurants and shops and it has some of the most exclusive shopping and dining in the country. It has new developments, like Avenida Escazú, which holds the country’s first IMAX theater. Avenida Escazú is a modern outdoor mall/center. This mall has many international brands like Max Mara, Women’s Secret, Cortefiel, and Adolfo Dominguez, and the country’s first Starbucks. Another unique feature of Escazú is it holds the most luxurious mall in Costa Rica, Multiplaza Escazú, which is home to many big international brand names like Zara, Armani Exchange, MNG, Guess, Lacoste, Tiffany and Co., Carolina Herrera, Salvatore Ferragamo, among others. Many locations in the city are prized for their scenic views. This area is one of the most developed parts in the metropolitan area, populated by families with high incomes. Escazú contains many apartment blocks and residential areas.
Over the past couple of decades, Escazú has become an expatriate enclave: several embassies have their residences located here, including the residence of the US ambassador, and the Dutch and British ambassadors. The past few years have seen a significant influx of newly arrived foreigners from North America, South America, and Europe. It is home to many bars and restaurants, especially those of the more chic (and expensive) variety. Rents and prices reflect this and Escazú is the most well-known upscale location in Costa Rica. Here, one can find English movie theaters and even a luxurious country club. There are also many fine restaurants and dining areas in this part of town with excellent nightlife. Banks, pharmacies, shops, grocery stores, and even an 18-hole championship golf course can be found here, along with one of the biggest and most modern shopping malls in Central America, Multiplaza.
