If you think Costa Rica is all about its beaches, think again. Hacienda AltaGracia, the first Auberge resort in Central America, is tucked high among the mountains of Pérez Zeledón -- one of the last unexplored areas in southern Costa Rica. Guest rooms are spacious and all have terraces that overlook the mountains or San Isidro Valley.
This luxury resort boasts numerous activities including a spa and its own 28-stable equestrian center, where guests can take a tour and hop on a horse for a ride through the mountains and rain forest. The hotel also offers ultralight aircraft tours, in which guests sit back while an expert pilot takes off in an open-air two-seater plane from the resort’s own landing strip, gliding high in the sky for aerial views of the surrounding area. After a day of exploration, refresh in either the indoor or outdoor pool and hot tub. The outdoor pool also offers great mountain views.
The resort has multiple farm-to-table dining options on property, including Ambar, La Cantina and El Bistro, which all use fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
