The Alta Las Palomas Hotel in San Jose, Costa Rica, basks in the high life, literally.

Upscale and sophisticated, Alta’s terracotta roofs and tall ceilings lend it a timeless European village charm, while La Luz Restaurant and Bar provides a relaxed setting for soaking up the views. The hotel is equally suited for honeymoons, romantic getaways, business meetings and quiet reflection after your Costa Rican adventures. The bustle of city life below remains reassuringly in reach.
