Alajuela Travel Tips & Suggestions
This is a way better place to stay than San Jose ... I stayed in Alajuela my first and last nights in Costa Rica and the close proximity to the airport makes it so much easier. It's not a bad city either.
Hey all travellers Alajuela is the best town in CR to spend a couple of nights before heading for the beach or the mountains. It's only five minutes away from the airport and a taxi ride to there is only like 2 bucks so it is a great deal, it is very clean and much more safer than San Jose, you should visit it.
If you've visited Alajuela, add your comments and tips...
