Ramón Bernardo Soto Alfaro was President of Costa Rica from 1885 to 1889.

He took office when his father-in-law, President Próspero Fernández, died in office in 1885, and in a gesture of national conciliation following the fiercely disputed election for his successor, decided to hold himself apart from office on November 7, 1889. He never resigned, but the Third Vicepresident Carlos Durán served as acting President until the end of the term.
