You'll head down Calle 33, a lively street in Escalante that has come to be known as the "Paseo Gastronómico La Luz", or "La Luz Gastronomy Street", as it is home to the city's highest concentration of restaurants.

As well as eating tasty food and learning all about San José's gastronomy, you'll also have the opportunity to admire the different architectural styles that make this area of the city so fascinating.
