My boyfriend and I stayed at Tierra de Suenos the last week in February and we had a fantastic time! The rooms were beautiful and clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Most of all, the staff was fabulous. We both got sick during the stay and the staff graciously took care of us, made us soup and light...

We decided to stay here because we did not want to stay at a typical resort, and we liked the fact that it was a little ways out of town so that we wouldn't be stuck trying to sleep in the middle of puerto viejo's night life. We were very happy with the location, set back in the forest but...

Hey there, Thank you very much for the review! I am very happy that you mentioned the downpour in the evening, it truly goes to show you that this is a rainforest. We also enjoy the wild life and interesting insects that you can find here in Costa Rica. As for the toilet paper, yes I had the same response...

Ok, call me a city girl, but even in the jungle I might expect that my room (when $100/nite and referred to as an upscale bungalow) might have fewer than 20 bugs flying around within its "walls" (read: screens) at any given moment. I like the idea of Tierra and might have better dealt with the deafening animal sounds and...

Hello, Thank you for the review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the service. As for the screens, we have gone and replaced any that were broken, and have decided to stick with screens as it helps with airflow. It can get quite hot and humid and screens are best to keep air moving. We really enjoy being in...

I read through a few of the negative reviews for Tierra de Suenos, and I can understand why they were disappointed or upset when they got there. However, this is in Costa Rica, so it isn't meant to be a luxury vacation (at least in my opinion). I loved staying here and would definitely be open to doing it again...

Hi! Thanks for all the feedback! Yes, we like to stay eco-friendly and we try our best to keep it to the style of Costa Rica. We really appreciate that you mentioned tidbits about the life style here. I agree, the howler monkeys are quite fascinating! I can say that the rooster has left the property so there are no...

We had a fantastic time at Tierra De Suenos. This b & b is set in the jungle south of Puerto Viejo in a Playa Chiquita. The cabin was very cute with hammocks on the deck and bug covers on the four post beds. Since it is in the jungle you will hear all kind of animals around you which...

This B&B is a little gem in the jungle. Our family visited Tierra de Suenos in August for a well-deserved vacation and had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Tierra de Suenos is a beautiful jungle home. Breakfasts are delicious, rainstorms on the tin roof are magical, and its location on a little road to nowhere means that you can escape the pace of hectic life. The area's mix of Caribbean and Latin influences isn't for everyone, and the highlights of the area are adventure activities, tasty and varied...
