Heredia Overview

Larger town that keeps its small town feel due to being the home of the largest University in Costa Rica, National University of Costa Rica, which accepts many international students. Heredia is the capital of the Heredia province, located within the San Jose metro area. It is just North West of the capital San José. And maybe a more tranquil place to stay when you need to be in or around the capital. The weather is warm year round with the most rain occurring from May-October. The town itself is unexceptional but friendly.
