San Ramon is a city located 27 miles away from the northeast of Alajuela. It is also known as “the poets and presidents’ city” since five different presidents in the history of Costa Rica were born in this picturesque city in the province of Alajuela.

One of the most important presidents, the social reformer José “Don Pepe” Figueres Ferrer, was born in San Ramon, and that is why the city houses a museum fully dedicated to him located at his former house and born place: it is a museum devoted to his life where there also displayed art and photography exhibitions (open from Monday to Saturday, from 10 to 19, free admission).

In front of the previously mentioned museum, it can be found the San Ramon Museum, based on the local history and open from Monday to Friday, from 8 to 17 (free admission).

The city’s main tourist attraction is its church, San Ramon Nonato Parish, a gothic building that stands out from the rest of the city buildings.

If what you want is just resting for a while and observing the way of life of San Ramon’s inhabitants, which is calmer than in the nearby cities, the perfect place for you to go is the Central Park, which is located just opposite to the church.

Even though this city is not famous for its great size, it has all the commodities that can be found in bigger cities: cinemas, restaurants, museums, art galleries, supermarkets, clothes shops, shoe shops, etc. It even houses one of the campus of University of Costa Rica!

The city is surrounded by hills and coffee and sugarcane crops, so it is considered to be the country’s agriculture center.

If you wish to meet a Costa Rican city with so much personality, do not miss the chance to come to this small city while you are traveling the north of Costa Rica.
