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.

Heaven in Costa Rica! No photo could do it justice. Breathtaking views from every spot! The staff was warm, welcoming and very attentive.

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 Bird-Friendly Brew

“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. Though we tried the renowned Tarrazú Geisha coffee before - the most expensive coffee ever sold by Starbucks - we came for the bird-friendly beans found in the Perez Zeledon mountains, an area where mountainous terrain and warm temperatures collide to form the ideal conditions for Arabica beans to flourish.

Do Saddle Up, Wine Down

I've been traveling to Costa Rica for almost 30 years, and I've been to plenty of the country's resorts. In all that time, I've never seen a place where both kids and adults can have equally incredible experiences than at Hacienda Alta Gracia. For kids, the stables are the best in Central America. Well-trained and easy for kids to ride and enjoy, my granddaughters fed and brushed the horses following their ride. Plus, a huge bonus - there are almost always baby horses on the property, which are always a hit! Back at the resort, the kids played at Kata Grande, conveniently located near a bar where parents can enjoy!
