Schedule

Day 1: Arrival. Guests are greeted with a fresh juice smoothie and have time to settle into their private casitas and explore the property. 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 good book or DVD from our in-hotel library.

Day 2: Relaxation. First, enjoy a morning yoga class in AmaTierra’s inspiring 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-view vista on-site. Next, we provide a light gourmet lunch before your personalized massage. Relax for siesta in your casita or laze in the hammock between the trees. Dinner and wine await you in the evening, promising 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 for your guided tour with our partner Vic’s Tours, complete with explanations of Costa Rican plant and animal life. After your rainforest tour, spend the remainder of the day at the nearby beach on the Pacific Coast, where you can swim in warm waters, walk the beach, have a delicious lunch (bring cash) and do some souvenir shopping. Or, hire a surf lesson for some extra fun in the sun!

Return to AmaTierra for sunset meditation or relax in your casita until dinner.

Enjoy your second yoga class before departure the following day.

      5 stars because the people are wonderful !

    I have had the pleasure to facilitate two retreats at AmaTierra Retreat Center in Costa Rica. Both of my experiences were amazing. Bob Ruttenberg & Jill Ruttenberg are experienced, caring and thoughtful proprietors. The staff ( many of which I've learned have been with them for years and years ) are tremendous. The food, the tranquil location, the excursions they coordinate and the wellness services are all top notch. As a facilitator I felt supported & respected by Bob & Jill - they have the needs of the guests and the teachers paramount in their focus. I highly recommend this facility for anyone looking for a relaxing exotic adventure. The pleasant natured staff and the pristine mountainous jungle environment combine for a nature filled nurturing experience Kenny Kolter sacred sound practitioner United States May 2015
