At 7:00, come to the dining room to enjoy a delicious, healthy family-style dinner cooked by our local chefs. Retire for the evening with a DVD of your choosing from our in-hotel library.
Day 2: Relaxation. First, enjoy a morning yoga class in AmaTierra’s inspiring new open-air studio, followed by a healthy breakfast on the balcony overlooking the valley below. Later, take a refreshing swim in the pool and get back to nature by hiking to the stream and ocean viewpoint located on the property. Next, we provide a light lunch before your personalized massage. Now feeling completely relaxed, take a bath in the tub in your casita. Again, dinner is at 7:00, and it promises to be just as yummy as the night before.
Day 3: Adventure. Wake up early and come to the dining room for breakfast. Next, head to Carara National Park, where you are given a guided tour by Vic’s Tours complete with explanations of Costa Rican plant and animal life. After your rain forest tour, choose to spend the rest of the day at nearby Jaco Beach.
Come back to AmaTierra and relax from your long day by the pool or in your casita.

“A wonderful, off the beaten path retreat”
BUTTERFLYHOLLOW, TENNESSEE. REVIEW FROM TRIPADVISOR. JUNE 2010.
We shared our 20 year wedding anniversary at AmaTierra and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We filled our time with a few excursions, but mostly just soaking in the forest, the rhythm of its people, and the sounds of nature. Each day was started with a gentle yoga workout in their amazing studio and we pampered ourselves a few times with massages, which were some of the best we have ever had. The meals were phenomenal, the grounds were well maintained and the staff went above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and at home.

"Home away from home!"
A TRIPADVISOR MEMBER, ASHLAND, OREGON
"I must say the one thing that is so memorable, besides the wonderful managers, is the delicious food they serve. All natural and organic from the local area markets. My partner and I stayed in a private, very clean casita that was surrounded by the magnificent rain forest and the many wild birds and small animals indigenous to the area. You're truly in mother-nature land !! On the property there is a hiking trail that leads to a meandering creek if you're adventurous. Your camera will not stop clicking, trust me on this one.
Our hosts (Bob & Jill) were amazing. Always around if you had a question or just wanted to chat..... Be Ready To Enjoy A Good Time.... !!
We're planning our next Costa Rican Adventure soon !! "
