San Antonio de Belén has little to offer visitors but its rural charm and proximity to the international airport. The latter led developers to build several of the San José area's biggest hotels here. The country’s sole Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple is also found here, open only to visitors of the faith. The town is a convenient departure point for trips to the western Central Valley, Pacific coast, and northern region. If you stay at any of the big hotel chains here, you likely won't even see the town, just the busy highway between San José and Alajuela.
