I LOVED Ama Tierra! I was able to have a "retreat" experience as well as go off and do my own things from time to time, and Jill and Bob were great about helping me schedule extra excursions, arrange transportation, and recommend the absolute best options for my trip. The yoga teachers change periodically, so Jodi was teaching while I... More

Everything was fantastic. The owners clearly care about their business, the physical space was lovely, and the treatments available (massage, consultations etc) were also exemplary. The yoga class and nightly meditations were good for mind, body and soul. This is a great place for solo travellers wishing to have some personal downtime, healthy food, and good energy. I am grateful... More

I went for the five day detox to Amatierra with a friend. The place is beautiful - but we went during an especially hot and dry time of the year and were surprised there was no air conditioning in the rooms. It probably would have been OK except 1) I experience hot flashes and 2) detoxing and being hot do... More

This was my first experience in Costa Rica though not a first experience in retreats. The particular component our designated adventure at Ama Tierra in healing with sound was especially appealing for me. I traveled with my sis, niece and one of my daughters for a week long adventure. Our ages ranged from 33 to 70 yrs old. While the... More

The personal touch of the owners who live and work on the property is what makes Amatierra such a special retreat. They oversee every detail, and make sure that each experience is personalized to every individual's needs and tastes. For example, they tailored my menu to accommodate my food allergies. The property is a well-kept, beautiful garden retreat in a... More

My trip to Amatierra was a retirement gift from my husband. I recently retired from 28 years in the Texas Public School System. To help me transition from my overstressed and undervalued job my husband determined a yoga retreat was in order. Boy, was he right! This place is amazing. It is small, allowing each person to fill as if... More

My first trip to Costa Rica staying at Amatierra was everything I expected and more - the yoga, meditation, food, side excursions, and Jill and Bob's personal touch were great. They genuinely want you to enjoy yourself. You won't be disappointed!

If you are looking for a property where you can relax, recharge, enjoy delicious food, practice yoga in a truly beautiful studio this is the place. Bob, Jill and their entire staff made our short stay special. Hope to return when we can stay longer.

Absolutely loved our stay at AmaTierra! The casitas are comfortable and nestled in the forest, so that you enjoy the sounds of the forest at night. We've never slept better! The owners and staff have a wonderful personal touch and will do anything to make your stay comfortable, as well as planning day trips and providing directions to any points... More
