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 Zeledon -- one of the last unexplored areas in southern Costa Rica. Named on Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot list for 2016, this one-of-a-kind hotel is sure to provide travelers with a luxurious vacation in the midst of nature. Guest rooms are spacious and all have terraces that overlook the mountains or San Isidro Valley.  

Activities are endless at this luxury resort. Spend the day being pampered in the spa, which at 20,000 square feet, is the largest in Central America. The resort has 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 from the resort’s own landing strip, and glides high in the sky offering aerial views of the surrounding area. Refresh after a day of exploration in either the indoor or outdoor pool and hot tub. The outdoor pool also offers those great mountain views.

The resort has three dining options on property -- Ambar, La Cantina and El Bistro -- which all embrace a farm-to-table concept inspired by locally sourced ingredients. From the spacious suites and multiple dining options to the endless activities, this Auberge resort in the heart of nature exudes luxury and is sure to leave travelers relaxed and refreshed.
