"Ambience, Food, Yoga, Trips"
Amatierra has a great ambience-very peaceful, lush green surroundings with sounds of nature all day, all night long.
The food was deliciously prepared and catered to the individual preferences of the guests.
Kelly and Jill were great yoga instructors who led us through gentle, Hatha yoga poses and meditation.
We took several excursions including the Pas falls, The Catrera National park, the coffee plantation and the Jaco beach. The drivers and guides were competent, friendly. and knowledgeable. Also, access to Amatierra from the airport was easy.

"Amazing Yoga retreat for Solo traveler"
Loved the atmosphere, the location and the overall experience.
The schedule of the yoga classes and mediation classes was just perfect and it was great to kind of have a scheduled day more or less without it being toooo stressfully scheduled and having the time to read, relax, dip in the pool, take a nap
i was very hesitant going in this by myself but came out of it definitely relaxed and having met a great group of friends!
Owners Bob and Jill are very welcoming and so is the entire staff. Vanessa , our yoga instructor was just perfect ! i had almost zero experience in yoga, so definitely a beginner & this experience made me love it even more. It really was a physical and emotional experience. My favorite spot in the resort was definitely the Yoga Studio and hanging by the pool and reading a book on one of the hammocks in the property.
Food was fresh & very flavorful as fruits and veggies are all organic! Lunch was the only one that was not very filing but i believe it was overall part of the wellness and health offering and i personally didn't mind it at all!
I did some excursions such as Carara National Park, beach and the Waterfalls . Waterfalls were a magical experience in my opinion. Really a must do!
Overall, I really loved this experience and felt so much better coming out of it and with great positive vibes!
Thank you so much for this exceptional welcome and experience, didn't want it to end! Hopefully will get to escape once more another time!! Namaste!

"Step away from what stresses you ....."
The peace and serenity at this retreat would be hard to better. It’s a place to enjoy nature at its finest whilst finding an inner calm doing a variety of yoga classes and eating fresh healthy food. You truly can just breathe the fresh clean air and feel rejuvenated.

"Best Trip Ever"
Best Trip Ever!
from United States, November 2017
There is no other way to describe Amatierra other than paradise! I felt as if I was in the Garden of Eden. It was so peaceful and so beautiful. The overall experience appealed to all of my senses. The physical beauty of the place is indescribable, you wake up to birds chirping outside your window; your sense of touch is delighted as the warm breeze brushes against your face and body as you engage in your yoga stances in the open air yoga studio (which is the most beautiful studio I have ever seen). Your lungs are cleared and there is absolutely nothing to smell UNTIL...you are seated at your dining table. This experience I really cannot describe. I appreciate fine dining and am new to the vegan world. I am from New York and the juxtaposition with those two worlds can mesh seamlessly. However, when I described myself and my friends as vegan (when I communicated with Bob -the owner) and he indicated they can accommodate our vegan diet. I expected that! An accommodation only -which I translated to healthy, unappetizing food. However, the chef at Amatierra is AMAZING!!! the food will have your taste buds dancing. The views are spectacular, Bob's music selections are divine. The massage is relaxing. The overall experience can only be described as spiritual - if you allow yourself to relax, unwind and really take in the experience that they offer.

"Had a wonderful retreat"
The food was amazing, healthy, and very delicious. The place was just as described, very peaceful and beautiful. It's a small group, the hosts were very welcoming, and it was really nice to have gotten to know the people staying at the retreat with us.
I was looking for a special place in the nature to celebrate my 40th birthday. Finding AmaTierra was just a blessing as it was all I was looking for: being surrounded by green, relaxation with the opportunity to do some activity. Well, this place offers it all. You will be absorbed by the sound of the beautiful jungle re-connecting with yourself through the power of this vigorous green nature. Practicing yoga in the breathtaking studio will present you the healing power of mother hearth and gratitude will be the only thought in your mind. Massages done by the expert hands of the practitioners will just add a perfect hint to the relaxation it is found as soon as you step into this Peace Temple. The local waterfalls are very closed and really worth to be seen as well as the Park and the beach which are just 1 h far away. Should you look for a life-change experience go for the horses therapy which is one of those experience which will stay forever in my memory and deeply touched my heart.
Special note for the owners, Jill and Bob, who will make you feel like you are hosted by relatives and part of a wonderful family. Jill is a gifted healer and can offer various ways to improve your physical condition and enlightenment for your spiritual path, may you wish so. All the staff of AmaTierra from cook, waiters, drivers, gardeners are very carying and kind people (Papo is the funniest driver ever!).
I couldn't wish any better for my staying and recommend this place if the above resonates with you, it would be the perfect place to be!
Thank you AmaTierra for giving me the best birthday present I could ever wish.
Calm, tranquil and peaceful trip. No worries at all, Jill and Bob have everything taken care of! Yoga and meditations were great, the yoga studio and entire center are beautiful and well maintained. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to get away!
