Ciudad Colon is a small town bedroom community of newly constructed condos, apartments, and houses. Many of the older homes and barrios remain, along with a few farms and ranches. Coffee fields begin a block away from the apartments. The sounds of birds chirping, the sight flowering trees and shrubs, and a view of Poas Volcano in the distance await you here. Apartamentos Amarillo is a perfect place to stay short or long term. Everything you need is within walking distance or a 15 minute Uber or Taxi ride to Pricesmart (like Cosco). Local buses to San Jose etc. are two blocks away. The apartments are comfortable, secure, and include internet, cable TV, all utilities, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, a sink especially designed for cloths washing and an indoor cloths line in each apartment. Housekeeping and laundry are available for an extra charge. The owner/manager is always available for repairs and general assistance/information. Quiet hour begins at 10PM-6AM. I've stayed here both short and long term over the past 14 years. The owners are among the nicest people you would ever want to meet.

I spent about eight months at Amarillo apartments while attending school near Ciudad Colon. This experience has been absolutely wonderful. Ciudad Colon is truly colonial Costa Rica, not the tourist areas that gringos frequent. The town is safe and very traditional. Ed is an American and runs a great apartment at an increible price. (and he obviously speaks English. The view of the San Jose vallery from his balcony is great. The apartments are small but are fully stocked with all necessary furniture and appliances right down to forks, knives and salt and pepper shakers, and a clothing iron. If you need anything else, just ask, and Edd will provide for you. There is no other place in Ciudad Colon like this. I plan on coming back to this place as soon as possible. Feel free to contact me if you need any futher information about Ciudad Costa Rica or Amarillo Apartments.
Going on 7 years at apartamentos amarillo and I am very pleased! Highly recommended especially at the price.
