... the 50km we had to finish. We had to modify our plan in the afternoon - I took a taxi the last 10km!! No apologies and it gave me a bit of much needed rest out of the hot sun before Mike showed up 2 hours later having slogged it out on the trail. That is a distinct disadvantage of booking with a company for these kinds of trips - regardless of how you are faring, you must make the next hotel as your reservation and luggage are there. We stayed at an average kind of place ...
... back after about an hour as we knew we had the long walk back up the hill to come! Turns out it wasn't that bad, it was quite a steady hill but very long, and I was pretty tired by the time we got back, although a vaguely warm shower helped. Sat watching more dodgy films, and the hotel gave us all a little snack of chicken which was really nice, before pasta for dinner and back to the fire and then an early ...
... didn't have any change. Drove onto Chimanimani hotel, where I had a freezing cold shower and a warm up in front of their fire. Dinner was sausages, beans and toast, and we went back into the bar to sit in front of the fire, play cards and watch weird films like flatlinwrs and escape from LA. Layered up for bed - leggings, joggers, thermal top, top and 2 fleeces, so hopefully I can get a good nights ...
... Everyone else came back after abit, but I don't think we missed much. Put some layers on as it gets cold quickly, although my washing was done from the sun during the day. Had steak dinner again, just as good second time round! Despite the lay in was tired again, and still feel ill, so ended up in bed about 9, while some of the others ended up playing drinking games ...
... today. As is my usual caution be it at Porth Mear NE of Newquay Cornwall or here I hide my gear. To my disappointment, having stashed our gear, a few minutes later 3 local boys appeared and took various routes down close to us in what appeared to be a search pattern. Then, rather than jumping and playing I noticed two boys taking elevated positions and watching us. What was the 3rd up to. I might be wrong but I think that the timing and behaviour ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel AmaTierra San Pablo
If you're in Costa Rica, you must stop at the Hotel Ama Tierra.
AmaTierra was, quite simply, the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. A gorgeous setting nestled cozily in a hill with spectacular views. The beautifully appointed rooms have a great bathroom, with a shower that made me feel I was back at home. I could say so much but I think "Loved AmaTierra" from Tucson has said most of it! I agree wholeheartedly.
A Honeymooner's Paradise
My husband and I had the priviledge of having this hotel as one of our stops during our honeymoon and loved it. The staff and owners made us feel at home and the property itself was like a tropical paradise. The food and atmosphere were so inviting we would definitely recommend it highly to couples or anyone in need of an escape from the everyday! We are already looking forward to going back for our anniversary!
Relaxing getaway at Tia Ama
We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and had a fantastic holiday, we visited three very diverse areas, each was excellent. We spent 2 nights at the Hotel Tia Ama, the rooms, the food and the company were excellent. Bob and Jill our hosts wnt out of their way to cater to all of our needs. We spent probably the best day of the holiday visiting the local Tarribarri park which was arranged through the hotel.
When we visit Costa Rica we will definately stay at the Tia Ama again.
We just returned from a 10-daystay in Costa Rica, where we stayed in 3 different places. Our favorite was the AmaTierra, a lovely new ( 2 years old) 10-casita hotel just off the road that runs between San Jose and Jaco, in an area called the Central Highlands. The grounds are forested with native trees and many flowering plants very well-tended by the 2 gardeners.
AmaTierra (formerly known as La Finca Que Ama) is a real gem. The place is intimate, well managed, and incredibly restful. We spent two days there before heading to the beach and it really set our trip off on the right note. Within minutes of arriving, Jill, the owner with her husband Bob, fed us a delicious, refreshing salad, put us immediately at ease, and within a couple hours, my wife was getting a fantastic massage and we were lounging by the pool -- totally relaxed and recovered from our trip. The pool is lovely, if a little small, and the bungalows are spotless, comfortable and nicely appointed. Lastly, and this is no small thing in Costa Rica, the food is FANTASTIC. Truly. It's simple, healthy, hearty, and plentiful. The meals we had there were by far the best we had in our week in Costa Rica. I even miss them in NYC. Go to AmaTierra and chill. There's no place like it.
La Finca Que Ama was the perfect place to unwind between tourist heavy Arenal and Manuel Antonio. Neta was there to greet us the second we got out of our vehicle and was more than accommodating, making us a light lunch right when we got there (not usually offered), and then not even charging us for it! Even better, the lunch was delicious! Actually, all the food there is - the breakfasts and dinners, which are included, are made with care and the best ingredients. You eat family style (which would make a New Yorker nervous!) but it was so much fun - we talked the whole time about everything, and before you know it, you have been sitting there for three hours. One of the nights there was a blackout and we ate by candlelight - a once in a lifetime experience to eat in absolute pitch blackness on a balcony with a thunderstorm around you.
We spent 1 unforgettable night at La Finca Que Ama. It was a privilage meeting Neta and Arbel; this is a true B&B experience as it was meant to be.
How would I describe La Finca Que Ama? Serenity, Beauty, Creativity and Hospitality beyond expectation.
The views from this place are beyond spectacular. Although it is further out from San Jose than other, more popular "just outside of San Jose" hotels (like Vista del Valle and Xandari, both of which we stayed at), the views from the balcony of the main building (in which is located the dining area) and from the infinity pool, rival the very best of them! Had we known of these stunning mountain vistas, we definitely and gladly would have driven out a little further after our arrival to start our holiday there.
