Hotel El Marañón: Arrive and relax

Spend your time in a typical country house, located in beautiful natural surroundings and yet not too far away from the capital, San José. You'll find us in the small village of LA TRINIDAD, which lies on the old road between Santa Ana and Ciudad Colón. Just 8 km from the airport, this is the ideal starting point for your journey through Costa Rica.

Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of comfortable accommodation in a shady garden that is literally overflowing with tropical vegetation, fruit trees, exotic birds and butterflies. Look across the Central Valley and savour the fantastic view that stretches right up to the Poás volcano.

The patios and the garden give you every opportunity to really relax. Children are particularly welcome. Our aim is to create a personal atmosphere that will allow guests to feel totally at home. Our local knowledge means that we supply all the information and tips you need to make your journey a complete success.

Our 20 rooms with private bathroom and balcony/terrasse are prepared for 1 to 4 persons and we offer a group room for up to 10 persons. They are situated in our tropical garden, partly with an amazing view over the Central Valley. There are also 2 two-room apartments for families. Our hot water supply is powered by a solar system.

We provide an extensive service that includes Restaurant - Café - Bar - Galería EL AGUACATE (=Avocado), - to see the menu click here.

In our souvenir shop you get art and craftwork, postcards, maps, travel guides, cigars and T-shirts.

Our Wellness area offers different types of massages, yoga and dancing clases - as well in a complete natural surrounding.

Our driver will be happy to pick you up at the airport ( $ 46 ) and we are happy to organize any other transport.

The location of EL MARAÑON makes it an ideal starting point for your excursions: The capital San José is only a stone's throw away, but you can just as easily explore the volcanos Poás and Irazú and National Park Braulio Carillo. And its easy to get to the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, the Arenal lake and volcano in the north or the Osa peninsula with National Park Corcovado in the south.
