Sometimes the draw of the familiar is so strong it trumps the temptation of the exotic, and occasionally this is the case in Costa Rica. At the Residence Inn Marriott Costa Rica, the accommodations are catered mainly to those who would prefer to live as residents rather than tourists.

One of the best parts about staying at the Residence Inn Marriott is its proximity to Avenida Escazú, Costa Rica's swankest destination for shopping and dining; new restaurants, such as the hip Product C, and venues such as the Jazz Cafe keep things live after dark, and families with kids can enjoy daytime attractions like face-painting and puppet shows.
