Once-In-A-Lifetime Excursions and Experiences
Countless unique activities abound at this exclusive getaway. First and foremost, this luxury resort specializes in equestrian activities. Costa Rica has a rich history of cowboy culture and Hacienda AltaGracia will help each guest find their own inner cowboy or cowgirl. After you get to know your horse, spend the day riding the trails or perfecting your seat in the saddle. Or if you’d like to explore Perez Zeledon without the horse, try mountain biking or hiking.

Or visit the luxury resort’s organic garden and help the chef’s pick fresh produce for the day’s meals.

In addition, Los Cusingo Wildlife Refuge has many opportunities to learn about the biodiversity of the region.
Home cooks and chefs alike would enjoy the cheese making class. They can also spend time with a local family to learn about authentic Costa Rican cuisine and prepare a meal together. And those seeking adventure can take to the sky with an Ultralight flight tour of the country. Fliers might even catch sight of migrating whales! But for a truly unique Costa Rica vacation, get up close and personal with the Boruca Tribe, one of the last indigenous tribes in the country.
