We want our attendees to experience our retreats feeling transformed and connected, more equipped with tools to create their healthiest relationships possible that will help enhance their wellness in 2020. At AmaTierra, guests can enjoy some of the freshest foods in all of Costa Rica. Our Cuisine is International, with an emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, some home-grown in our organic gardens. Meals are accented by delicious spices such as fresh turmeric, ginger, basil and lemongrass grown on our permaculture farm. Guests enjoy family-style meals served on the balcony. Our dishes are either vegetarian or include fresh fish or hormone-free chicken. We do our best to honor individual dietary concerns and we can adapt our menu for vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free diets.

Serving up a variety of seasonal fruits, traditional Costa Rican “gallopinto” rice and bean dish, fresh farm eggs from our own chickens, whole grain bread and organic coffees and teas, AmaTierra guests feel pampered and satisfied. Leaner options such as oatmeal with goji berries or yogurt & granola with soaked seeds & flax are also available. A consultation with one of our health professionals can lead you to a diet appropriate for your goals and we can help you get started on detoxifying or making dietary changes.

Our local cooks serve up delicious dishes made with fresh fish, such as our Coconut-crusted Mahi Mahi, Chicken dishes (orange/mango chicken with coriander, served with brown rice is one favorite) or vegetarian dishes such as Fresh Spinach Enchiladas and Vegetarian Thai Curry over rice. Enjoy a glass of Organic Wine or Costa Rican Beer with dinner, (these are the only alcoholic beverages served on the property). Snacks are available as are a variety of healthy fruit or green Smoothies and Coconut water straight from the coconut! As our goal is healthful, enjoyable dining, you will feel good about AmaTierra’s attention to freshness and wholesome ingredients. A beautiful salad with fresh greens from the greenhouse is part of every day. We use only healthful oils,(no trans-fats) real butter and local honey, often substituting honey or “dulce” (minimally processed sugar cane) for white sugar. Desserts are homemade, gluten-free and generally light, though we accommodate everybody’s love for chocolate!

ThingsTo Do

Local Waterfall: Malaquita Verde

Have an authentic Costa Rican adventure in a nearby backwoods waterfall where you can experience the “wild side” of the jungle. Relax by the lower falls or hike up to the top with our experienced guides to assist you, and take the plunge! Or, if playing Tarzan isn’t your thing, you can simply wade into the clear, pure, cool water or dangle your feet from the smooth rocks. A beautiful way to spend a few hours, and very cleansing for the Soul.

Adventure Park Costa Rica

All the adventure you need in one place. 25 zip-lines over 11 waterfalls. Fly like superman with no camera trick. The tallest high ropes course in Costa Rica. ATV Fun Park. Horseback riding tours.

Carara National Park Jungle Tour

Famous for scarlet macaws, an abundance of bird life, three kinds of monkeys, iguanas, colorful frogs and crocodiles, this tour, a 1 hour’s drive from AmaTierra, will spark your adventurer’s spirit. If you wish, add the Tarcoles River boat tour to your day at Carara Park and see the big fat hungry crocodiles up close and personal with Vic’s Tours.

La Paz Waterfalls And Poas Volcano

Enjoy two of Costa Rica’s most in-demand destinations in a one-day tour: La Paz Waterfall gardens and Poas Volcano. At the waterfall gardens, enjoy lush tropical rainforests, flowing white rivers, beautiful waterfalls, and a variety of birds, wild cats, reptiles, butterflies and flowers. Over 3.5 kilometers of hiking trails allow you to take it all in at your own pace.
A visit to Poas Volcano allows you to look into the heart of a live volcano. Although there is no lava flow, the steam arising from the crater and occasional geyser eruptions make this a spectacular sight. You will get a birds-eye view 320 meters down into the powerful crater from the edge of the hiking trail.

Points Of Interest

Discover the history and culture of San Jose on a personal guided tour. The city’s architectural showplace is the National Theatre. Its stunning baroque design and cultural significance make it a source of pride to all Costa Ricans. Best known for the permanent exhibit of pre-Columbian artifacts, the nearby National Museum features examples of Costa Rican religious art. Another highlight of your San Jose tour could be a visit to the Gold Museum, housing a prized collection of pre-Columbian gold featuring intricate artistry. The downtown area also offers several remarkable churches for you to visit and photograph, or visit the bustling Central Market for a glimpse of cultural life.

One of Costa Rica’s most pristine beaches and coastal landscapes, Esterillos Oeste is well worth the visit, at just over an hour’s drive from AmaTierra. This is truly a beach lover’s paradise. Palm trees overhang the white, sandy beaches and exotic Scarlet Macaws make their homes in the trees above.
Esterillos Oeste is located on the Central Pacific Coast, close enough to AmaTierra to include it as a day trip during your stay. This quiet coastal village is known by locals as one of the best beach destinations in the country. Adventure lovers will enjoy excellent surf breaks, sun lovers can soak up the rays and the whole family will enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

Playa Jaco, one of Costa Rica’s best known surfing beaches, is an hour’s drive from AmaTierra. This bustling surf town has one of the best beach breaks in the country. And you don’t have to be an experienced surfer to get into the action. Surfing lessons with the professionals at Jaco Surf School can be arranged for any experience level…AND they guarantee you will get up on the board, or your money back!

If you love to be on the water, spend a day on a snorkeling tour to Tortuga Island. AmaTierra provides the transportation to Puntarenas, where Calypso Cruises takes you on a comfortable cruise boat to Punta Coral Private Reserve and Tortuga Island. Tortuga Island is a tropical white-sand paradise, where you can explore the crystal blue reefs and get a closer look at the sea-life with fins and mask.

Stephanie is a Certified Dream Coach and Expert in Helping Brilliant Women Date Up, an Author, & a Reiki Practitioner. Stephanie specialize in Teaching Women how to thrive after codependency and narcissistic abuse and became committed to helping others after overcoming my own personal crisis.
Stephanie is normally someone that can deal with life’s stress pretty well, but at 35 years old and recently divorced, she suddenly found herself faced with legal issues, the death of her grandmother, a blood clot and a difficult break up all within a 3 month span.
After feeling depressed and helpless, having a tough time getting through the day she started to think about what lessons she could learn from the experience. Her search for answers led her to explore natural and complementary techniques that honored her inner wisdom and ability to heal, and her life was transformed as a result.

Danielle Ingenito

Certified Spiritual Empowerment Coach and Reiki Master Energy Healer from Dee's Divine Guidance

Danielle is a Certified Spiritual Empowerment Coach and Reiki Master Energy Healer, who helps Women Turn Their Pain into Power after Toxic Relationships through Divine Guidance & Energy Healing. She is just like you, and has been through her own ups and downs, including a recent divorce from a Narcissist. Through this hard time in her life, she started searching for more. She was left with two small kids while her ex-husband was with someone else.
She was so devastated and desperately seeking anyway to feel better. Since then she has learned so much about Spirituality, including Reiki, Tarot, Channeling and Mediumship. In a short amount of time with the help of all her spiritual practices & Guides, she turned her Pain into Power and has become inspired to help other Women do the same!

What People AreSaying

You have brought such a light into my life Danielle. Since I came across you which I truly believe was divinely timed, I have felt deep happiness and joy like I haven’t felt in such a long time. Thank you for being the vessel that has brought the spring back in my step, the love in my heart to pour out openly to others and for finding my voice again and not being afraid to speak up and share. Love you long time special lady . Tanya
Stephanie is an amazing coach and author and has helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life, leaving my emotionally abusive husband. Her book is an honest, raw account of her journey through abuse, awareness and healing that is relatable and empowering. I can’t say enough good things about the work she does and what a kind, inspiring person she is. Maria
David & Stephanie are 2 incredibly caring extraordinary people dedicated to helping people attain their desired results! Their knowledge and excellent bedside manner make them an incredible resource in the personal development field! Don
This was so on point with me.. My entire energy just changed and shifted and so much was released after I watched this. My mood, & emotions during work just switched like s light. I felt amazing and the second half of my day was completely awesome. You always change my life for the better. Debra W
Just watched the Archangel Chamuel Reiki. I was so emotional, felt pressure on the top of my head almost as if there were hands hovering above my head. I was told not to use the words “need to try” and use any other word instead . I”m feeling so much lighter. Karen
I definitely recommend Stephanie’s book. It’s a great read! Stephanie helped me overcome some tough obstacles and really helped me push myself to getting out and rediscovering myself! Recommend her 1 on 1 coaching! Erin
I worked with Stephanie on my co-dependence. Her group was absolutely wonderful. She’s very supportive and she broke our healing journey up into 6 steps. There is a lot of self work to do and she has a mandatory minimum to do which is what I did. And now that my course is over, I’m slowly working through the rest of the details. And I’m growing in leaps and bounds as I discover more and more about myself and slowly heal. Even my psychologist is amazed at how quickly I am healing from my co-dependence. Stephanie does a great job of helping others and I can highly recommend her. Sammi
Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. Working with Dee was such an incredibly powerful experience- on so many levels. I felt a strong connection to her pretty quickly watching her live. Her energy is so uplifting and motivating. Before we had our first session, I was honestly feeling “okay” – I wasn’t feeling terrible, but I certainly wasn’t feeling fulfilled or inspired. At that time, I didn’t even realize the depth of my complacency. The truth was I was feeling stuck, I was feeling blocked, and had become so detached from my physical body I didn’t know where to begin in an effort to move forward. Emily B
