If you think Costa Rica is all about 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. Spread over 860 acres of a former coffee farm, the resort is a nature-lovers' paradise.

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 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. Travelzoo members rave about the attentive service on property.

Not complaining but should have some benches around resort to sit for a mild rest. Since it is on a hill

Beautiful, peaceful property with impeccable service. The casitas are stunning, perfectly appointed and ideally situated on the property. Excellent food.

Wish there were more dining options each night—not every restaurant is open each night. Would also be nice if the pools didn’t close at 5:30 each night.

The staff was so welcoming and made you feel so special. The attention to detail in the rooms and the vastness of the resort was unparalleled to anything I have experienced at any of my stays in other hotels. It was such a special experience!

The resort itself is absolutely stunning, we felt as if we had the place to ourselves for 8 days. The staff is incredibly friendly and remembers guests by name along with other tiny details that make it feel like a VIP personalized vacation. We will definitely, 100% be back.
