The Hotel Heritage:

The subdivision where the Hotel El Tirol is located, originally was the dairy farm of a former President of Costa Rica Mr. Alfredo Gonzalez Flores (1914-1917)

Alfredo Gonzalez Flores was born in Heredia on Jun. 15-1877. This property originally belonged to his father in law, who was the owner of a very extensive piece of property that extended from where Tirol is located all the way to San Jose de la Montaña, 2 miles west. This gentleman left a part of this property to his daughter, don Alfredo's wife.


Don Alfredo then started a dairy farm, subdividing it into pasture blocks to use a new technique for those days of rotating the cows from pasture to pasture. Also he planted thousands of "cipres" trees as boundaries and as wind breakers. By all means this gentlemen was a entrepreneur.
