Workshop accommodation


The workshop is in the town of San Pedro, which is about 5 km East of Central San José. We recommend that you stay as close as possible to the workshop location as in Costa Rica traffic can cause major delays even over short distances.

We recommend these two hotels below as they are the closest to the venue and have offered us a reduced rate for the TRN event.

Gran Casa Universitaria

This is the closest hotel to the workshop venue. This Boutique Hotel is run by Randolph von Breymann who is a fully bilingual (Eng/Spa) retired professor after 35 year of working at the Universidad de Costa Rica.

The hotel has specialized in receiving visitors for academic activities at the UCR for over 20 years and provides specialty rates and greater flexibility than commercial hotel options

It provides rooms of different sizes, meeting rooms and gardens. Most rooms have a kitchenette and access to a larger kitchen is available, breakfast is included

Randolph can also coordinate airport pick up with his trusted driver at a discounted rate.

Please contact Randolph directly at and mention that you are attending the TRN workshop for more details on the offers he has kindly provided TRN
