Wait! Is there a place called Berlin in Costa Rica? Yes, there is!
Berlin hill is one of the most visited places by locals of San Ramon, Alajuela. Over 11.2km (6.9mi) and 23min are approximately the distance from San Ramon downtown to this hill, it is pretty close!
However, people from other areas don’t know how beautiful this place could be until they visit it. I have been to Berlin hill a couple of times, my first time was with Ligia only and our second one, we spent a great time with good friends.

Getting to the hill

Driving to this hill might be a little bit tricky particularly when you see more clouds than ever, even during summer time all the way to Berlin could be cloudy. One of the reasons is the elevation over sea level and also because San Ramon is known as the path of the clouds. But as soon you get to this area, the weather changes and you get to see Puntarenas (Pacific side) from there.

The Amazing View

PEACEFUL is the word that describes to sit up there and enjoy the view. There are several view points where you can stop your car and just put a blanket on the ground and sit there while the sun goes down. Puntarenas, Caldera and Nicoya Gulf are some places that you get to see from Berlin hill.


We definitely recommend to bring a blanket or small carpet to sit on the ground. Also it is important to bring some mosquito repellent and sunscreen.
Don’t forget to bring some food like: cookies, sandwich, juice or coffee. That will make your time more enjoyable.
If you love photography, I highly recommend you to carry your camera with you. This place is great for taking sunset pictures. Other important items might be: tripod, filters, lenses blower, extra battery and extra SD/CF memory. This place is perfect for people who love to read at relaxing place. So don’t forget to carry any book.
