Nestled in the mountainous region of San Isidro del General, the luxurious Hacienda AltaGracia Auberge Resort awaits your arrival with its spectacular panoramic view overlooking Valle del General. An 865-acre estate, the Hacienda doesn’t disappoint offering high-end house-like casitas and suites stylishly furnished to give you a sense of feeling right at home. Perfect for couples looking for romantic seclusion or families wanting to share an authentic Costa Rican vacation together, complete with horses, world-class dining, complimentary daily activities, fitness facilities, both outdoor and indoor pools, Jacuzzi, poolside bar, and totally relaxing Spa options. Guided tours in the area are easily arranged.
The higher altitude of San Isidro del General provides a refreshing contrast to the hotter nearby beach areas. Located in the southern mountains of Costa Rica closer to the Pacific side, the expansive Hacienda property includes beautiful gardens, nature hikes, horseback riding, mountain bike trails, forest, river, and waterfalls. Much of the food served in the Hacienda’s three restaurants is cultivated organically from this working farm. Once a week a complimentary tour with the chef can take you where the fresh organic fruits and vegetables are picked to create the menu’s specialty of the day. This unique off-the-beaten-path resort has been listed as one of the world’s best in both Conde Nast and Travel & Leisure magazines.
Area tours include visits to discover the traditions of one of Costa Rica’s indigenous cultures, the Boruca Tribe, known for their colorful, intricately carved painted masks. A neighboring farm invites guests to tour their traditional farming methods and participate by milking cows, making cheese, getting to know their farm animals, and collecting eggs. For the more adventurous, you can go sightseeing from an Ultralight airplane as the pilot takes you on a scenic tour over the mountains, rainforest, and Pacific coast. Back down on the ground tours are available to go mountain biking or hiking through the Los Cusingos Wildlife Reserve, visit a coffee plantation, or adopt a specific tree in the rainforest at a nature reserve. In addition, you can go white-water rafting on the Savegre River or swing through the jungle ziplining.
Hacienda AltaGracia Auberge Resort offers onsite guided horseback riding, hiking and biking tours. Amenities include an indoor as well as outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi, pool bar, game room, outdoor modern stone firepit, and an amazing Spa. At the Spa, you’ll find steam and sauna rooms, coconut scrubs, coffee compresses, and a variety of massage techniques including hot stone massage and special detoxifying massage oils. The Hacienda offers daily complimentary activities that change throughout the week such as yoga and meditation classes, tropical fruit tasting, guided forest or garden hikes, an interactive class to learn how to make your own skin cleansing scrub, and a trip with the chef to the organic gardens to pick the freshest vegetables, herbs, and fruits for the day’s menu special. Every day you are welcome to join one of the ranch hands to meet and feed the horses if you like.
The rooms at Hacienda AltaGracia Albergue Resort include a variety of spacious 1,100 square foot suites or 2,200 square foot casitas. All have air conditioning, coffee maker, living room furniture, premium channels plus Apple TV, internet access, quality bedding, and patio furniture with mountain views. Some units offer options for two bedrooms, a fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, and mini-fridge. None of the rooms offer kitchen facilities so you may want to plan ahead by bringing snacks and reserving a room with a mini-fridge.
Overall you can relax and enjoy your entire Costa Rican vacation while staying on the resort's beautiful 865-acre estate participating in both the complimentary daily activities as well as the resort’s local tour options. Or you can venture out on your own to explore the neighboring countryside. The choice is yours and beginning by choosing the Hacienda AltaGracia Albergue Resort, you’re off to a good start!
