We spent 8 nights at Ama Tierra and the experience was delightful on many levels. The setting is beautiful and each day all of our meals were served on the outdoor patio with a view of the distant mountains. Food was exceptional and as our group had a combination of “dietary restrictions “ the Kitchen staff were outstanding in their ability to meet all of our needs. Food was fresh and prepared with love. Rooms are comfortable and quiet 🤫, simple in keeping with the retreat setting. Pool delicious after a warm day Yoga studio was very special, outdoor styling with no walls, surrounded by beauty and peaceful views We loved the massages, nutritionists, and all of the healing skills the staff have to share with guests. Our experience was deeply nourishing and we hope one day to return, Ama Tierra is a very “special place of love & beauty”. Mary & Andy.

My partner and I booked a 9-day trip to AmaTierra and stayed for 12! We absolutely loved everything about our Costa Rican getaway. As soon as we arrived at the airport, we were greeted by a wonderful driver. When we arrived at AmaTierra, it was more gorgeous than photos. Our trip was at the beginning of the "Green Season," and throughout the trip, we were able to see an amazing mix of birds and beauty as it seemed like new plants were blooming every day. The views of the mountains were restorative, and we enjoyed walks along the pathways, Jill's garden tour, and walks into the small town down the road. Jill, Bob, and the awesome staff were incredible! Everything was so consistently clean and food arrived at the table on time--always. We really enjoyed the rhythm of AmaTierra--the morning yoga, followed by coffee, fruit, and breakfast, a mix of active activities, lunch and restorative practices, treatments, and swimming during the day, yoga/meditation as the sun sets, and then just the best dinner ever. We found this routine so important to our own rest, healing, and anxiety-reducing needs that were one reason we came to Costa Rica. In addition to the rhythm, views, and staff, the food is amazing. We felt healthy (but full) after every meal, and felt that food was such a gift and loving act from the kitchen team. Food was fresh and flavorful, creative, beautiful, and fun! We loved the evenings when we ate with others too, and sometimes we even got together before dinner for sing-a-longs. There is an opportunity to make it what you want, and this community-building was a blessing for our time there. We are so grateful for our conversations with Bob, Jill, Cuco, Casey (who was our awesome yoga instructor while we there), and everyone else. They wanted us to have the best experiences, and they truly helped us feel like better versions of ourselves. We took part in some of the adventures, and highly recommend the tour in the rainforest, sound healing, and the hard-to-explain-but-moving-horse experience. Our trip was filled with monkeys and birds and iguanas and people and trees and flowers and smiles and conversation and rest. We cannot wait to come back for another visit and thank AmaTierra so much!!!!

Thanks so much Nick and Michelle. We sure enjoyed meeting you both and hearing all the good things you are doing in Columbus with the organic gardening within your community. We need a lot more of that in Cities like Columbus Ohio. We hope to see you again either in Ohio or Costa Rica, You are a wonderful couple. Stay Healthy and happy..Bob and Jill and the staff at Amatierra Retreat & Wellness Center

I've just returned from my second stay at Amatierra. My first time there was in 2007 when Amatierra was not yet a Yoga retreat. All the things I enjoyed back then are still there: the beautiful and small place where everyone knows everyone, where one can feel at ease and understood, accepted and totally cared for. The owners are so loving and friendly that even before your stay you already feel like looking forward to meeting friends and family. The delicious food and possibility to do Yoga or even sing and dance together if you like made my stay one to remember. Many thanks to Bob and Jill, all the staff and the amazing guests!

The atmosphere at Ama Tierra is very special. I particularly enjoyed the open space living and dining area, overlooking the jungle, with sounds of birds, cicadas or Jazz music playing in the background. The food was delicious, the massage and other healing therapies excellent, and the yoga instruction varied and adapted to each participant. The staff was very polite and pleasing. I particularly appreciated the owner’s kindness and dedication in finding the appropriate treatment for my health issues and those of others. The last evening, Jill played the piano and we stood around her singing. It was truly an enchanting evening. I know I will come back.

We all so enjoyed your visit and glad you felt the same way. It's very important when we lead a detox that we are well informed regarding our gust needs and that questioner you filled out and sent back to your leader is very important so we customize your detox to suit your needs. We hope to see you back at Amatierra or maybe we can visit you in Europe sometime in our travels and see what an interesting life you lead and share some of your lifestyle. Thanks for choosing Amatierra
