Surrounded by pristine beaches and surreal looking tropical rainforests on both sides, Tierra de los Milagos is an isolated yoga retreat that is nicely hidden from the more boisterous tourist crowds on the Osa Peninsula. It is a pleasant, low-key property that is situated in the middle of one of the earth’s most bio-diverse regions. Thus the surroundings of this charmingly old-fashioned nature lodge house a large array of wildlife species (sloths, toucans and more) and other incredible botanical treasures. Nature buffs staying at the Tierra de los Milagos are awarded the opportunity to experience a true jungle setting in the midst of lush waterfalls, huge canopy tree walking trails and attractive looking tide pools in the middle of the forest landscape. If this wasn’t enough, there are an assortment of beaches near the lodge which host tourists who are looking to sunbathe and surf in the tropical Osa sun. This lodge does its best to incorporate an element of positive natural energy and a rejuvenating feel in minds and bodies of stressed tourists in an uncontrived natural backdrop. Tierra de los Milagos also puts together yoga retreats with master yogis throughout the year.
Tierra de los Milagros is located towards the southern tip of Costa Rica at the lush natural beauty exuding Osa Peninsula. It is at a distance of about 12 miles towards the southern side of Puerto Jimenez and visitors can reach the property by hopping into one of the daily flights from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez and then hailing a taxi directly to Teirra de los Milagos.

Food and Service
A majority of preparations that find their way on Tierra’s buffet table are created out of fresh ingredients sourced from the lodge’s organic gardens or from the adjoining Golfo Dulce. Tierra de los Milagos’ service is earnest, enthusiastic, personalized and professional since they have a policy of catering only to a limited clientele at a given time.
Tierra de los Milagos’ accommodation comprises aesthetic looking thatch-roofed bungalows that rest strikingly on a thriving ten-acre botanical garden. In sync with the down to earth appeal of a genuine eco lodge, Teirra de los Milagos keeps it minimalist yet comfortable with open-air showers and an unusually appealing natural character. This rustic look gives the lodge an edge over more pretentious eco nature retreats that look to ‘airbrush’ their property to offer the illusion of a natural retreat. Tierra strives to keep it s natural and ‘unprocessed’ as possible for allowing guests to savour a real natural experience of Costa Rica’s rich topography.
