There is no better time than summer! Sunny days, cool breezes and clear sky’s are characteristic of Costa Rica’s summer season. Which is why this is the best time to plan cool outdoor activities with family or friends. Our recommendation? Spend your next lazy Sunday afternoon at the wonderful Parque Francia!
Located in the hip neighborhood of Barrio Escalante, Parque Francia has become one of the most charming places in San Jose to spend your free time. Although it has only become popular in recent years, this park has quickly become a low-cost trendy outdoor alternative. Although the park is public, it is actually very safe due to its location and friendly neighborhood.
Known for its tranquil and laid off vibe, Parque Francia is usually packed with people looking to enjoy their nice summer days. Here you can really do whatever you like as long as you enjoy yourself! Picnics are definitely a crowd favorite! Whether it’s sitting on the grass or on one of the park’s tables; this is a great way to share some delicious snacks while chatting away with friends.
You will also find that Parque Francia is a great spot to spend some quality time with yourself. Find some shade underneath a tree, and enjoy an afternoon of binge reading your latest book. Or if you are more of an active person, you may prefer to run around the park and enjoy some lovely fresh air.
Are you a fan of sunsets? Well, there is no better place to spend a breathtaking afternoon than here! Get with your friends, buy a couple of beers and pick your chill spot while enjoying a beautiful Costa Rican sunset! Sounds delicious right?
