Santiago de Puriscal
A hidden gem in the western mountains of Costa Rica. The beautiful county of Puriscal is located within the province of San José, just one hour South West from the capital city San José. There are eight districts within this county with altitudes ranging from 430 to 1,160 meters above sea level. Interspersed throughout picturesque mountains, these districts host many charming communities each with their own church, football field, typical restaurants and pulperias (convenience stores). In all, these communities comprise a total population of roughly 30,000 inhabitants including hundreds of expatriates from around the world.
The main business center, Santiago, sits at an altitude of 1,105 m above sea level and while it retains its small-town appeal, it offers all services including three grocery stores, several hardware stores, major banks, quality doctors and dentists, pharmacies, skilled beauticians, charming boutiques, excellent restaurants and even a little taste of nightlife.
The recent opening of a full-service emergency hospital in Puriscal is a major asset to the community. You will rest easy knowing that this modern facility is just minutes away. Other states and world-renowned private hospitals are also accessible in about 40 minutes. As well, more specialized shopping and entertainment found in Escazú and Santa Ana are quick and easily accessible, making day excursions to more bustling areas fun and easy. Outside of the bustling center, the outlying areas offer a nostalgic charm and the heart of the rural culture of Costa Rica. Driving down any given road, you are sure to pass cowboys on horses, happy cows grazing in green pastures
and busy chickens scratching about in tidy gardens.
Many rural traditions are preserved such as the use of oxen and their colorful carts, small sugar mills or “trapiches”, coffee plantations and the cultivation of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.
Puriscaleños work hard at producing and put just as much energy in to celebrating. Jovial festivities are hosted annually in each and every community. Dancing, games, great food and a colorful display of fireworks bring everyone to the streets. The biggest festivities in Puriscal also feature an impressive rodeo, and traditional horse ride (cabalgata) that attracts riders from around the country.
COSTA RICA | LIVING WITH NATURE
The quality of life is great in Costa Rica where people live in peace and harmony with nature. Covered by dry farmland and lush rainforest, the country has a tropical climate. Having a reasonable amount of sun exposure through an active outdoor lifestyle is another key to longevity among locals. Vitamin D intake from the sun, especially when combined with walking as a traditional mode of transportation, offers a beneficial boost to heart and bone health.
