Enjoy one of seven gorgeous hardwood ecotourism minded Costa Rican bungalows that are set into the lush naturescape of Tierra de Suenos' property. Each ecotourist-minded bungalow has a different theme expressed in the hand carved wood, tile mosaics, painted murals, and artistic details. Enjoy hot showers and cool breezes from the overhead fan and large screened windows.

While staying in Tierra de Suenos, you can experience ecotourism by getting close to nature, sleeping to the sounds of the jungle, organic toiletries, fresh linens, biodegradable cleaning products, and relaxing in the hammock on your front porch. Observe heliconias, monkeys, sloths, hummingbirds, toucans, agoutis and much more. The casitas are adorned with orthopedic mattresses and cozy cotton towels.

The beds are equipped with canopy mosquito nets on to protect you from possible mosquitoes, but also adds to a rustic and romantic ecotourism experience for your stay in beautiful Costa Rica.
