The vast majority of students reside in Ciudad Colon, which gives the community a unique flair .
Demographically, Ciudad Colon can be considered as cosmopolitan as Santa Ana, 20 minutes east toward San Jose, or Escazu which is 30 minutes east, but in terms of amenities and services available, it is considered a typical small Costa Rican town.
There is one major supermarket that meets the needs and requirements of expatriates and dozens of other small stores, banks and pharmacies. There are some new restaurants that have located here, and there are many other local venues catering to food and entertainment, including:
Maya's Biergarten - Best schnitzel in Costa Rica.
Aroi Thai - Authentic Thai and very affordable.
Casa 76 - Wonderful thin crust pizza.
Che pizza - Argentine chef with good variety of pizza toppings. And they deliver!
El Establo - Argentine steak house, but only open Friday - Sunday.
Sangaria - A Pub chain.
All of the above have really been around for years. Aroi used to cook out of their kitchen and deliver, they now have a full and nicely decoration eat in. 76 has moved locations. Sangaria is a chain out of Escazu, located in a new strip mall.
And the newest is a Greek take out which already has a huge word of mouth recommendation. The menu features great prices and selection.
Ciudad Colon is really the newest up and coming city. A new hospital is being built as well as at least three new gated communities. Mas X Menos which is part of Wal-Mart is building a new store.
The mountains surrounding Ciudad Colon make it a wonderful location for hiking, horseback riding and mountain climbing. Old paths were created so people could trek up the mountain and take in the stunning views, vegetation of the region, waterfalls and the abundance of flora and fauna. Puriscal, another unique Costa Rica town, is just 30 minutes up the mountain.30 minutes up the mountain.
