Who doesn’t like shopping? Some people don’t, others just love it. Shopping is one of the main reasons, besides the many other amenities, anybody would want to live in Escazu or Santa Ana. That’s because the fastest growing area on the west side of San Jose has plenty of shopping places waiting for you.
