WELCOME TO Hacienda AltaGracia

Tropical Mountain Escape

Alberto J. Esquivel originally intended to build a modest country retreat in the foothills of the Talamanca Mountains, where his children could ride Andalusian horses through vast “fincas” and winding tropical forest trails. That original passion has grown into Hacienda AltaGracia, an unparalleled sanctuary offering unobstructed views of rolling hills or dense treetop canopy.

Stories from Hacienda AltaGracia

Go "I touched a cloud"

What feels dense inside, appears light as a tuft of cotton, but weighs up to a million pounds? Find out when you glide your fingers through them during an Ultralight flight above the mountains of Pérez Zeledón. When you buckle-up in the two-seat, fixed-wing Ultralight aircraft you can discover what clouds feel like as you glimpse whales, dolphins, and turtles of the Pacific Ocean from above.

Do Springtime in November

Every morning as I head down to the stables, the first rays of sunrise begin to peak over the crest of the lush mountains of Pérez Zeledón and slowly filter down into the valley creating a golden glow. A carpet of dew blankets the fields and sparkles in the morning sun.  A chorus of neighs and hoof stomps let me know that the horses are awake a ready for breakfast. On this morning last November, the 18th to be exact, Buena Noche’s white belly looks like it is about to burst.

Eat Farm-to-Table Aphrodisiac

“Am I really here? Can you pinch me?” said my husband almost every morning during our coffee-sourcing trip to Hacienda AltaGracia. We came to select the perfect beans for our shop in Vancouver, as Costa Rica is considered one of the best coffee growing regions in the world - it's the only country where it's illegal to produce any type of coffee other than 100 percent Arabica beans.
