Fodor's Review

President Oscar Arias built this terraced space west of the Museo Nacional to mark 100 years of democracy and to receive dignitaries during a 1989 hemispheric summit. The view west toward the dark green Cerros de Escazú is nice in the morning and fabulous at sunset. Jewelry, T-shirts, and crafts from Costa Rica, Guatemala, and South America are sold in a string of stalls along the western edge. The city has been threatening to move the vendors to another location for years, but nothing has come of it.
