The casitas are spacious and homey, the food healthy and delicious and the yoga space inviting and so relaxing.

We spent a lovely week in Amatierra in what is considered the off-season. There was nothing off about the delicious and healthy food, the accommodations, the kindness of Jill and Bob and the rest of the staff, or the refreshing and cooling afternoon rains. The gentle yoga was just what I needed, and the massages blissful. Also, the lovely swimming...

I fell in love with AmaTierra, Jill and Bob, the staff, and the wonderful group of people I shared my stay with. I have never felt so at peace, and more so I felt incredibly safe as a woman traveling solo to a foreign country. The food was as delicious as it was beautiful. I took several day trips outside...

I spent 6 days at AmaTierra on a yoga/wellness retreat and it was far beyond my expectations. I decided to go on this trip alone because I wanted to quiet my mind and free myself from every day distractions.
