San Ramón is a city in the canton of San Ramón in Alajuela Province in Costa Rica. The central municipality (distrito) of San Ramón covers an area of 1.29 km2, and has a population of 10,710. Adjoining distritos are also part of the city.The city lies at an elevation of 1,057 meters above sea level in the Cordillera de Tilarán. While retaining its rich heritage and tradition, San Ramón continues to serve as a link between the agricultural communities further north in the Meseta Central and the central cities of San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, and Cartago.HistorySan Ramón's history begins with the arrival of the European settlers in this part of the central valley in the early 1840s. These primary colonizers established traditional farms in the area, many of which are either still operational or have since been converted to the cultivation of the region's three main export crops: Tropical ornamentals, sugar cane, and coffee. The name San Ramón was bestowed by two prominent figures in the establishment of the town, Ramon Solís and Ramon Rodriguez who placed the area under the protection of Saint Raymond Nonnatus. In 1854 the village of San Ramón was elevated in status to municipality then, in 1856, five schools were funded which was the beginning of the Municipality of San Ramón's legacy as the main educational, and later commercial, hub of the canton. San Ramon holds a rich tradition and is home to great poets (Lisimaco Chavarria) and former presidents (Jose Figueres Ferrer). Its story dates from the nineteenth century and holds events to mark one or another so the fate of the entire country, for example the creation of "Liberacion Nacional Party" and the Army eradication by the hand of expresident "Don Pepe Figueres". Since 1876 San Ramón has also served as the governmental center of Alajuela Province's second largest district which is also named San Ramón.To arrange what you want to do in San Ramon, use our Costa Rica visit planner.
