Hotel Ave del Paraiso - San José

Hotel Ave del Paraiso - San José

You will be staying in the family-run Eco Boutique hotel Ave del Paraíso. The Polish/Costa Rican owners have great creative hearts and minds, reflected in the hotel’s colorful design and attention to (sustainable) detail. Still, this Green Circle Member hotel is an oasis and space of calm in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s located next to the University of Costa Rica, surrounded by a unique green garden where you might spot a sloth.

Your hotel
Ave del Paraiso is also within walking distance of the trendy neighborhood Barrio Escalante, home to many excellent restaurants to enjoy a nice dinner or a coffee. However, if you want to stay closer to home, cross the garden and enjoy a farm-to-table meal in Café Kracovia, managed by the sons of the hotel owners.
