The Hotel Urán is located just 50 meters from the trailhead to Mt Chirripó National Park.

Our story began in June 1998 when we started to help tourists who passed by our house on their way to and from Chirripó. At that time there was a car park for four cars, and tourists asked if they could buy food and drinks, especially on their way down from the mountain.

That was how Don Ulises Romero came up with the great idea to open a small ‘soda’ with just four tables. But after only a few months it became necessary to provide tourist accommodation and so 10 bedrooms with a shared bathroom were built, as well as one family bedroom with five beds and a private bathroom.

So that was how Hotel Urán began – as a family dream to have our own business. Today the hotel has 45 beds with private bathrooms and 20 beds with shared bathrooms!.

We have three fully-equipped cabins with two rooms each, with a double bed and a bunk in each room, refrigerator, stove, hot water and a spectacular view of Mt. Urán and the surrounding mountains, in front of the entrance to the park.

Today our hotel offers the best service in an environmentally friendly manner, according to the standards and practices of sustainable tourism.
