Ciudad Colon is a small town with a small expat community located only 20 minutes away from Santa Ana. You will find smaller shops, sodas or small restaurants, serving mostly Costa Rican food. Ciudad Colon is home to the University for Peace, sponsored by the United Nations. With the fast commercial and residential grow of Santa Ana and the highway that shortens the driving time to the Pacific Coast, Ciudad Colon is growing in a more and more interesting place to live.
