Hotel Report

Why Stay At Hacienda Tayutic

This upscale hacienda is set high in the green mountains of central Costa Rica.

The Scoop

Costa Rica isn't just about the beaches, and this hillside hacienda proves it. Nestled in the volcanic peaks of the central highland province of Cartago, the six-room lodge offers 180-degree views of the coffee plantation—filled valleys, the Turrialba and Irazú volcanoes, and Angostura Lake. The family-owned retreat feels more like a classy farmhouse than a traditional hacienda, with wood-beamed ceilings and antique wrought-iron beds. And although it may be remote and isolated, there's plenty to do: guests tour the orchid greenhouse, learn about sugarcane and coffee growing; then, depending on the preferred level of activity, take a stroll through the gardens' giant chessboard or don a bathing suit for either the swimming pool or rafting on the Pacuare and Pejibaye rivers.

Insider Tips

Although not advertised, the chef will be happy to create a personal cooking lesson in the kitchen, focusing on local dishes, such as fried plantain patacones with black bean dip and herbs grown on-site.

Book a massage session in the property's hillside gazebo overlooking the lake. The yoga-like Thai massage is the best of the eight treatments on offer.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) which is approximately 45 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 2 hours of travel time.
