Our comfortable two-room suite sleeps up to 4 people. The hardwood rooms are connected by a bathroom and each has a private balcony looking out into the jungle – perfect for watching the howler monkeys, toucans, blue butterflies and hummingbirds!
Hidden Garden is a unique wellness center, located between the rainforest and the Caribbean beach town of Puerto Viejo de Limon, Costa Rica. Our lodging consists of four petal-shaped rooms surrounding a sun-filled atrium. The well-equipped kitchen, library, extra bathroom and yoga lounge below are available for guests to share.
Enjoy our variety of therapeutic services including massage, holistic counseling, dietary therapies and integrative tribal healing arts.

Nestled in the jungle, Hidden Garden offers the privacy of a secluded retreat while only a ten-minute walk to everything the town has to offer: Caribbean beaches, memorable nightlife and international cuisine reflecting the town's vivid culture.

During morning yoga and meditation we ask all guests to maintain a low noise level, as well after 8 pm. We hope that guests will respect our rainforest surroundings and the ecological practices we use to minimize our impact. This includes recycling, composting, conserving water and electricity, as well as being friendly with any wildlife you may come across in the garden.
We met Rachel on our second day and she was delightful. The house is beautiful and relaxing and in an amazing location in the jungle. It is a bit further from town, but that adds to the experience and made our stay calmer though we visited the area during its peak season. I advise to follow her directions to the house exactly as we got lost in our first attempt! The rooms were great and we loved the view and tranquility.
This place was amazing! The house is absolutely beautiful and everyone was extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking to stay in a jungle setting with great location near town.
This was my second visit to Rachel's Hidden Garden. It was such a delight the first time so I made a point to go back and visit again.
This time I was smart and rented a bike to get me into town and back as it's about a 15 minute walk, which isn't a big deal unless it's pouring and the dirt road can become full of puddles (so bring your rubber boots!)
Nice and really peaceful place in Puerto viejo jungle! We just loved our stay in this wood made home.
Everything was ready for us when we arrived. We did not meet anyone until the next day but were able to make ourselves at home very easily. It is at the end of the road and set up against the jungle. A calm peaceful, quiet place.

I am from the United States and have lived in Costa Rica for fifteen years. I love to work with medicine plants and be outdoors in the rainforest.
