It's a nice mall, but you can get overpriced items in the states. They have all the big brands like sperry, Nike, puma, etc. They also have a movie theater and a pretty big food court with all the choices of food from Pizza Hut to tacos to local food.

We were heading to downtown San Jose, Costa Rica and had a few hours to visit. We stopped by the mall as we had heard it was a great mall to visit. We found parking pretty quickly and I want to say it felt like it was air conditioned. The parking structure was much cooler than the outside air. I... More

Nothing particularly special about the Multiplaza Mall - big brand shops, not much that felt Costa Rican. We could not track down any decent restaurants - just a food court with junk food franchises. Head to Intercontinental Hotel across the road for a number of decent options.

You'd never think you are in Costa Rica when you are inside this mall. It is inline with the upper class malls of the USA. Very similar to Aventura Mall in Miami. Everything you could want and more.

MultiPlex is the biggest mall in Costa Rica and there are hundreds of stores, restaurants and theaters. It is a little bit of America in a beautiful Country. But if the downpours of the monsoon season occur, it is a great place to wait out the rains.

This is a huge shopping mall with a wide variety of stores, some restaurants, a giant food court, movie theatre and several banks where you can convert currency. Several large hotels are within walking/shuttle distance.

Something for everyone that loves to shop. Lots of big Brand Name U.S. stores but also local stores as well. Considered an upscale mall but a lot of reasonably priced things that are not always available elsewhere.
