Getting There

This lush property sits high in the mountains of Pérez Zeledón, in the southern region of Costa Rica, one of the country's last-to be-discovered hideaways. Fitted with its own airstrip and helipad, it's a mere 25 minutes by air from San José on its private airplanes. The scenic route by land, also extended by an exclusive fleet of private luxury vehicles, takes 2-1/2 hours of beautiful driving, either by the new "Costanera Road", or by the scenic Interamerican Mountain Pass.
