When were planning our trip to Costa Rica we were looking for places and locations where we could feel at peace with ourselves but still feel pampered.

AmaTierra exceeded my expectations. Jill and Bob were warm and welcoming hosts. Jill is a very intuitive and spiritual practitioner. My experience was one of peace and self discovery. My casita was spacious and comfortable. The Yoga studio was amazing as it was open and the birds would sing and the breeze would blow at just the right times. I...

I believe life is about making new memories. My husband and I just achieved that by spending a wonderful week at AmaTierra for my 40th birthday.

Once a year my sister and I get together for a long weekend to spend some quality time together. She picked Costa Rica and I picked the place. AmaTierra couldn't have been more perfect. The setting is gorgeous and the casitas are comfortable and large enough for us both to have our own space. Doing yoga every morning in the...

From the initial reassuring emails..."where do we stay the first night!" to our final "good bye" dinner amongst other guests on the balcony overlooking a beautiful, green valley....our experience with AmaTierra was a delight. Our host and hostess were always nearby, offering suggestions for day trips, arranging for transport, making sure we were happy. Casitas were private and clean, simply...

Yoga overlooking the mountains, massages with Jill, delicious dinners on the balcony with Bob's music playing in background, side trips to beach at Esterillos, to Turabari Park, horseback riding to a waterfall-- all in all, a sublime experience. Jill and Bob are delightful hosts who aim to please.
