Discover the Serene Waters of Hacienda AltaGracia Pools & The Pacific Ocean
Visit Hacienda AltaGracia and experience the transformative waters of Costa Rica. Perched above the cloud line in rolling hills with sweeping views of the San Isidro Valley, sink into a private cabana or cozy sun lounger to take in the peaceful surroundings at one of our two resort pools. Take time to reset and recharge with our natural River Bath or a pre-treatment dip in our heated jet pool at Casa de Agua. For those seeking to explore our lands beyond the hacienda, there are various curated day trips such as a world-class rafting adventure along the Pacuare River or an easy escape to the local beach town of Uvita for private surf lessons, all providing you the opportunity to enjoy the fresh and salty waters of the Pacific.

Surfing & Waterfalls in Uvita
Explore the Pacific Coast surf town of Uvita, where the waves, a surfboard and your professional instructor await. Depart the hacienda for a day at the beach featuring a laid-back lunch at a family owned restaurant, surf lessons with a professional instructor, a beautiful waterfall trek and a leisurely afternoon in the sun.
In need of a day of sun and sand? Our curated day at the beach provides the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy an easy escape at the Pacific Ocean. Leave the hacienda early morning and enjoy the scenic 90-minute drive up and over the mountain ridge where you’ll arrive to a wide and hidden beach surrounded by tropical forests. A small cooler packed with natural drinks, a few snacks and a beach blanket will be your gear for the day, allowing you the chance to stay here as long as the sun does.
Costa Rica is known for great rafting - a ‘must do’ activity for adrenaline seekers - but there is one river, the Sacred Pacuare, that stands above the rest. Unreachable by most, the AltaGracia experience takes you to the Upper-Upper Section of the river, where seclusion allows for casual interactions with native indigenous fishermen and very rarely another raft on the go. A short lift from Guayabo by helicopter takes you to a pristine section of the Pacuare River, where a world class rafting competitor will take you through class III and IV rapids. At the end of the adventure, a locally-inspired open fire lunch awaits riverside for a well-deserved organic meal in the middle of nowhere - or, from a different perspective, in the middle of everything.
Discover the unique habitat defined by the interaction of the tropical rainforest and the ocean. Hike along single trails within the Barú Private Reserve, a protected area that combines forest, beach and the mouth of one of the most important rivers in the area. The gentle nature walk allows you to explore as long as desired, identifying species of fauna along the way and learning from the flora in this rich coastal ecosystem. Following the hike, spend the rest of your time discovering nature in Marino Ballena National Park, trek to a local waterfall or choose a secret beach to relax and enjoy the sun. Enjoy lunch at a locally owned restaurant before heading back to the hacienda.
