Tierra de Suenos Wellness offers Luxury Wellness vacation in seven gorgeous hardwood Costa Rican Bungalows built by the local community. These are set into the lush nature scape of the property. Each ecotourist-minded bungalow has a different theme expressed in the hand carved wood, tile mosaics, painted murals, and artistic details. While staying in one of our bungalows you can experience ecotourism by getting close to nature, sleeping to the sounds of the jungle or during the day relaxing in the hammock on your front porch surrounded by heliconias in hues of reds, yellows, orange, and green, gingers with their cluster of white and pink flower buds, humming birds, toucans and much more.
Our Standard Caribbean Bungalows have space for 1-2 “ecotourists”. The hand-carved canopy beds are queen sized and there is just one per bungalow. Single beds are added to accommodate shared facilities throughout your stay. The canopy mosquito net on each bed not only protects you from possible mosquitoes, but adds to a rustic and romantic ecotourism experience for your stay in beautiful Costa Rica. These five bungalows all have a private bathroom and spacious front porch great for relaxing and enjoying the surrounding nature. The standard bungalows are perfect for enjoying time off from your schedule and a simple and elegant getaway.

Costa Rica is a small country in Central America bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Caribbean to the east. Nestled along the Caribbean coast, the small village of Playa Chiquita sits just southeast of Puerto Viejo and next to Playa Cocles. Although the town itself is quite small, the beaches are pristine. Playa Chiquita is about 4 hours by car from the capital city of San Jose where most people will be travelling from if they land at the Juan Santamaria International Airport.
Costa Rica has exploited its natural diversity and become well known since the early 1990s for its commitment to eco-tourism as is reflected in this FAT adventure. It is a politically peaceful and stable country with a long established democracy. It is frequently cited by the United Nations Development Programme as having attained far higher human development than other nations with the same income level. It was also ranked highest in the world on the 2010 Environmental Performance Index and ranked as the greenest country in the world.
Costa Rica has the greatest density of natural species in the world with about 25% of its territory protected under a system of conservation areas and national parks. There is an impressive range of plants and animals to be found there including 1,500 different species of orchids, animals such as the jaguar and birds such as green or scarlet macaws.
