Delightful vistas of the mountains, well conducted yoga practice, peaceful evenings , delightful sunsets, delicious wholesome balanced meals.. we came in a group of five women for 5 days. The masages were well done, the yoga classes well organized. We enjoyed the tour to Carrera and jaco very much.

I recently spent a week at Amatierra participating in their Yoga & Meditation retreat. The resort was absolutely beautiful and nested in the beautiful landscape of Costa Rica. It was supposed to be the rainy season while I was there, but it actually rained very little. The food and wine there are absolutely amazing, and they are able to accommodate... More

I first heard about Amatierra through another Trip Advisor review- I was looking for the perfect place for my first solo trip oversees- it needed to be safe, and offer me the relaxation experience I was looking for. Amatierra did just that. Bob and Jill have created an incredible environment in the mountains of Costa Rica. After being picked up... More

I had a great experience at Amatierra. First of all, I met nice people through the trip, Bob and Jill and all the staff worked at the place, also guests stayed at the same timing. Enjoyed everything in my list from yoga to surfing. Literally awakened myself in the marvels of nature. I cannot wait to come back.

After struggling for years to loose some weight, eat better foods and exercise, the Universe lead me to find a detox program in Costa Rica at AmaTierra retreat. Their 5-day program was more reasonably priced than all detox programs I found in the USA (airfare included). So, I treated myself for my 69th birthday with a trip there. I loved,... More

I decided to do a last minute detox after 4 months backpacking around South america and booked amatierra only a few days before I was scheduled to arrive. I was met by such a warm atmosphere that made me feel right at home. Owners Jill and Bob were so accommodating, helpful and friendly. The detox programme included so much more... More

I have been in Mexico, Jamaica, the South of France, Harper's Ferry, the Netherlands, Dominica, Brazil and multiple times in Costa Rica. Amatierra is the first time I have repeated a location. The owners Bob and Jill bring a special family touch to their groups. One feels a... More

I just returned from a week long yoga retreat at Amatierra. It was a welcome sight after a long day of traveling. The owners Bob and Jill were waiting for us with cold fruit smoothies. Our stay was wonderful. The terraced cottages were clean and comfortable. Delicious coffee was available for us in our rooms. The meals were exceptional. Breakfast... More

We hosted a weeklong dance retreat at Amatierra in February 2015. It was the perfect location for 25 dancers to live and work for 7 days in paradise. The studio is amazing, and the food was perfect for all our dietary restrictions. I found all of the staff to be extremely helpful and accommodating from the moment we stepped on... More
