Yoga can change your life dramatically, Mariskas teacher said when she started a beginners course Integral Yoga in the Netherlands in 2005. He was right. Within half a year she met the man of her life and got a dream job. Yoga helped her to let go of thinking patterns that were blocking her life. Suddenly she had a clear view on herself and the world. Before soon she started the teachers training Integral Yoga and discovered that passing the blessing of yoga on to others helped her on her spiritual path.

Integral Yoga integrates all yoga styles. Classes are very diverse, with static yoga postures but also flowing series of asanas. Breathing exercises and meditations let your whole being benefit. Mariska: Its also about integrating awareness in your daily life, not just only on your yoga mat. She also gives Pre Natal Yoga, which prepares mothers-to-be for a smooth birth and helps them to relax body and mind. And Kids Yoga, which encourages the self-esteem, creativity and body awareness of children.

Seasonal information

While it is true that the Caribbean side of Costa Rica gets more rain, unfortunately the way that weather is reported makes it sound like it never stops raining here. This is simply not true. The Caribbean is often reported as 70% chance of rain when in reality, it is only raining in one of the micro-climates along the long seacoast and the rest is perfectly sunny.

Yes, it receives more rain than the arid Pacific coast. But for more lush vegetation, and most of the time nothing more than an afternoon shower, you will enjoy the verdant natural surroundings of the uncrowded beaches and reserves. And anyway, theres nothing quite like a tropical downpour, it is an experience in itself!

As for temperatures, they vary little between seasons, with the average around 86F (30C) during the day and 70F (21C) at night. It is quite humid here year round, as we are in the rainforest, but it always cools down at night which makes for great sleeping conditions.

Mobile communication information

There will be no in-room phones, TV, internet or stereo. This is intentional to facilitate a feeling of complete retreat. We do not have wireless internet available in your rooms. There will be wireless internet at the front reception lounge.

Accessibility information

We are not wheelchair accessible! The Tierra de Suenos Wellness Center incorporates grounding into all of our practice. This allows the days energy to be released and positive to come into our bodies for proper healing. Living close to the earth with surrounding nature provides this experience for our guests. Tierra is filled with serene stone pathways which light up at night for easy travels. Any guest who has difficulties maintaining stability while walking, and especially our chronic guests struggling with neuropathy, should use care while traveling our grounds. If you are having trouble our staff is more than happy to walk you to and from your bungalow for a safe and pleasant journey. Guests should use their own discretion while at our Center. Tierra de Suenos Lodge is not liable for any injuries incurred in our natural setting.

    "I brought eight people to Tierra de Suenos for a Yoga Pilates retreat. We had a wonderful and relaxing time! The staff are very accommodating and helpful. They went above and beyond my expectations to help make our stay comfortable and easy. The food is incredible. They are located just a short walk to the beach. "

    "The yoga space is so'll be doing yoga and you will see the most amazing birds and animals! I'd recommend renting a car to get around. "

    "Everything was great, we had an amazing time! Our bungalow was very clean and equipped with everything we needed--even mosquito netting over the bed. The breakfasts were fresh and yummy, yoga class very relaxing and the weather was perfect. If you like being secluded and surrounded by nature then this is the place for you. Plenty of great places to eat close by within walking or biking distance. I wish we could have stayed longer, maybe next visit! "

    "Our room was awesome and the photos of the colorful walk-in shower cannot do it justice! Ric was the most congenial and hospitable host you can have and the food by Alejandro is beyond compare! Meditating and doing asana with howler monkeys serenading! Watching a sloth right outside the cabana moving so slowly was a meditation in itself! You cannot go wrong by staying here! "

  • Review by Lauren from Maryland, USA

    "This place was perfect for my husband and I... We loved the openness of the bungalows, and being one with the animals and sounds and nature. All the staff were super attentive, helpful, and friendly. If you had any questions or issues, the were solved/answered immediately. The bungalows were very clean and tidy. The property is gorgeous and peaceful. Lots of wildlife right on the property.. We saw spider monkeys, howler monkeys, bats, sloths!!, frogs, butterflies, spiders, birds and a weasel looking land mammal.The beach is just across the street and the trek into town is great if you want to ride or a bike or take a taxi. We also booked an awesome cranial sacral massage, took a yoga class, and used the infrared sauna - all available at the lodge. We can't wait to come back!"

  • Review by a traveller from Arizona, USA

    "From the moment we arrived we were treated with the utmost kindness even though we arrived just before they were ready to close down for the night. In the morning we got our bearings and the place that we found ourselves in was absolutely beautiful. The lodge has only a few bungalows spaced apart so you feel like you are alone in the jungle. They offer breakfast and dinner on their open air patio near reception. There is a very nice yoga studio with daily classes. The lodge is nicely located just a short 10min drive or 20min walk to Puetro Viejo, a quaint little beach town with many beaches that is full of very friendly and helpful people. I can't wait till we get the chance to go back."

    "I led a yoga retreat at Tierra de Suenos and was impressed with how seriously amazing the food was and how accommodating the kind staff was to us! The yoga space was beautiful and tucked away in the jungle. Our cabanas were not large, but all we needed, comfortable, and charming. I highly recommend staying here."

    "This hotel is just beautifull. You'll sleep on a really nice Bungalow in the middle of the tropical forest, surrounded by the sounds of the nature, just a few walk to paradise Caribbean beaches. The Boungalows are equipped with a hand crafted wooden bed with a mosquito need that create a romantic and peaceful ambience. On the front terrace you'll have the perfect hammock to found your harmony back and forget all the stress. There is a lot of places for dining on the area with a diversity of Caribbean and organic food. Please don't leave Puerto Viejo untill you taste the delicious chocolates from Caribbean's they are just delightful. Definitely a place to love and come back over and over again."

  • Review by Jillian from North Carolina, USA

    "This was a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Alejandro was a great host. Very helpful and gracious. We did our best to communicate in broken Spanish and English. Just be pre warned that there is no wifi or hot water. It was nice to disconnect and unplug for the weekend but we did not know that going into it. The beach right across from the hotel is the most beautiful in the region (in my opinion) and breakfast was perfect! I wish we could have taken a yoga class, but the instructor was out the time we were there. But it is a nice escape in the middle of jungle with access to the beach."

  • Review by a traveler from New York, USA

    "Plain and simple, this place is amazing! Peaceful and quiet. A little stream runs past my bugalow next to a tree that could easily be over 200 years old as I swing peacefully in a hammock on the porch. Like I said awesome! Beautiful area for yoga with sauna. Playa chiquita is gorgeous and nearby, a little walk through the jungle to what feels like your private beach. Water is a little rough & with some rocks and coral but there is an area to swim. I purchased a boot camp package that included all my meals. Every meal was healthy and delicious at Tierra de los Suenos! Their is Wi-Fi in the lounge. Alejandro was a most gracious host and excellent chef. Tierra de los suenos lodge was so lovely. I would highly recommend to anyone considering this property."

    "My stay at Tierra de Suenos was truly a dream. Alejandro and Daniela were wonderfully accommodating. My cleanse went smoothly and the meals thereafter were phenomenal. Alejandro shows exceptional skills and passion for hospitality, food, and resources management. He has a pleasant and effective manner with the grounds crew. I also noticed that the premises are consistently clean and tidy. Daniela is a valuable asset with her business savvy and bilingual skills. You are fortunate to have found the perfect team to manage your property. Peace, Cheryl"

  • Review by Adrianna from La Fortuna, Costa Rica

    "I had the great privilege of staying at Tierra de Suenos in July for a weekend visit to Puerto Viejo. I was debating several different places to stay at and settled on Tierra de Suenos because of its good reviews and proximity to Playa Chiquita. So glad I did! I had a beautiful little bungalow in the middle of the rainforest that - while simple - was exactly what I was looking for. The bed was cozy, it was great having hot water, and I absolutely adore my porch area with a hammock.It did rain most of my time there, but I loved it just the same, spending a lot of time reading on the hammock (it was a solo trip just looking for relaxation, anyway). I loved hearing all the howler monkeys and there was a lot of wildlife itself on the property. It is a short and easy walk to the beach, although I did need to ask for directions. :-) Both Maria and Alejandro were awesome, kind, and genuinely helpful. Breakfast was also delicious and healthy. I can't wait to go back!"

  • Review by Jeanean from California, USA

    "Loved it here, we had an awesome treehouse and saw animals we didn't see elsewhere which was exciting. We slept in a treehouse and had a bathroom with a huge shower, five of us had no problems with the accommodations and enjoyed sitting on the deck with a bench, chairs and hammock. Great staff, very friendly and gave us coffee, fruit and eggs and toast for breakfast which was unexpected and a nice treat in an outdoor setting. Even without a reservation we felt welcomed and the staff did everything possible to accommodate us.we loved the natural, jungle setting and can't wait to go back. You will not regret staying here. Peace."

  • Review by Charlotte from Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

    "Working with Greg has changed my life! I was referred to him for a liver cleanse but after he explained his SCIO quantum biofeedback program, I decided to try it. I had been a nurse for many years so had a medical background but was not particularly familiar with this type of energy medicine. I was absolutely fascinated by the information he accessed with his system and thoroughly enjoyed our session. The fact that I could treat the conditions he found with nutrition, herbal supplements, and detoxification amazed me. It is such a perfect way to treat illness and maintain a healthy life. This is what the future of medicine should be. I started his suggested recommendations and immediately saw results. My energy level and general outlook on life changed right away I dropped 20 lbs. and have maintained that for several months without feeling like I was on a weight loss diet. Its feels more like a total lifestyle change and I experience extreme joy in being healthy. Greg and his family have inspired and supported me during this time. I am so grateful they are here in Costa Rica and are now part of my life."

  • Review by Elizabeth from Bunburry, Australia

    "I have been treated by Dr. Gregory Damato over the past two years and will continue requesting ongoing sessions. I also refer people to Greg for treatment. Two years ago I became unwell with a gastro viral condition that continued and ranged though most of my body. I did not get a medical diagnosis but had many symptoms of chronic fatigue. Greg began both direct and remote treatment with his biofeedback machine. At some point during his treatment, or in the period following, I have experienced impressive improvement in whatever was ranging through at that time. Greg follows up each session with a report which provides feedback and priorities for my attention. The reports are succinct. They dont overwhelm me with too much information. At the same time they provide ample opportunity, through internet links and his own infinite store of information and wisdom, so that I could do my own research and take responsibility for my own healing and rebalancing. Greg is also very responsive to answering questions that might arise from his report. He walks his talk and is truly an inspiration, genius and joy emanator! My life has become enriched and very full, with ten different creative endeavours underway, since two years ago when I was in bed most of the day for months and wondering if I would ever emerge into an active life again!"

  • Review by Jenny from Perth, Australia

    "Over the last 18 months I have been having regular SCIO sessions, and following the recommendations provided on dietary changes and natural medicines or herbs to support the healing sessions. During this time, SCIO has helped me to successfully heal two instances of a subarachnoid haemorrhage with a minimum of discomfort, and enabled me to track the progress of that healing giving me confidence in the process. My overall health is also very much improved, I now feel so much more alive, vibrant and my skin glows with natural health. Thank you so much, I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about returning to good health. "
