Barrio Amon

If you're looking for old-world Costa Rican charm and colonial architecture, then Barrio Amon is the place to be. This was once the neighborhood of choice for the city's elite, but most vestiges of the old life were toppled by severe earthquakes. Today, several mansions built with coffee dollars remain, and promise some of the city's most beautiful colonial architecture.
