Heredia is situated in the green, coffee-rich mountains just north of Costa Rica’s capital city San Jose and has a cooler climate with lots of nature. San Jose is only a short distance away by car or bus. Heredia is home to many international companies, the National University of Costa Rica and has numerous public and private schools. Many foreign retirees chose to live in Heredia because of the low cost of housing. There can be found both short- and long term rental properties and the prices can be affordable.
