Those are the larger commercial areas and zoning organizes commercial areas in each neighborhood. The Municipality understands that the only way to stop traffic from growing faster, is to stop the residents from having to go outside their own neighborhood to purchase the day to day necessities. The larger malls will give you plenty of options for you shopping and you will find many restaurants throughout the city.
In the 80´s and the 90´s, Curridabat was strictly Spanish spoken except for the French in Costa Rica, who moved to the East side.
