Called "The Village", San José's most popular mall has it all

El Pueblo Shopping Centre

It takes a village

With a design incorporating traditional touches such as adobe, colonial-style wooden staircases, and white façades, San José's best-known modern shopping centre, north of central downtown, boasts enough shops, eateries, drinkeries, and danceries to keep you busy for a full day and night. It's popular with Josefinos but also with a good number of tourists thanks to its proximity to the zoo - practically next door. And so there are a few shops geared toward them, selling souvenirs and handicrafts (though, granted, at some of the city's highest prices for this kind of thing).
