There is a place in the Mountains of San Pablo, where the trees grow tall and the air is fresh, the views are breathtaking, and the Yoga is rejuvenating. It is the AmaTierra Retreat and Wellness Center. Now, what I was looking for was a quiet place to detox and disconnect from the daily stresses I often feel here at... More

I enjoyed one week with my sister and friend at Ama Tierra, we did the yoga retreat package that included daily yoga practice. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip an recommend anyone ready to de-stress. We did the horse connection experience, surfing and rainforest tour excursions they offered. Each of these outings harmonized well with the retreat to get back to... More

A big thumbs up if you are thinking of staying at AmaTierra. It was the best vacation I have had in years! The jungle, birds, the whole vibe there was so calming and helped me completely unwind from all the stress I had been feeling in my very busy life. The rooms are clean and simple, beds are comfortable, and... More

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
