The Space

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. Join one of our regular yoga practices, medicinal movement classes or educational workshops available from local and international teachers. The lush garden is home to more than 200 organic plants – guests are invited to stroll the grounds and sample our freshly-made herbal teas.

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. Easy day-trips can include a tour one of our nearby pristine protected areas, such as Cahuita National Park, a visit the Jaguar Rescue Center, a surfing lesson or renting a bicycle for your own coastal adventure.

  • To start Rachael's place is absolutely stunning the pictures are true to form. Racheal is fantastic and there to help you with anything you might need I took part in one of her yoga class's which were great and I also had a massage by another lovely lady that was amazing! I didn't experiance any hot water in the shower and the pressure wasn't great but your In the middle of the jungle so that wasn't at the top of my list! For the most part we had the bathroom to ourselves because the room next door wasn't occupied however a couple did stay for one night and there was some confusion with the locking of the doors. Turns out I was locked out of my bathroom for the day because they had locked it from the inside. But there was a toilet downstairs so wasn't to bad. Overall a beautiful place I had to get used to the insects ie geckos, spiders, and all the other ones I didn't even know the names of. Living in the jungle so couldn't complain was all to be expected. To get to town you have to walk 10 minutes down a dirt road I didn't do this in the dark but a cab is super cheap maybe 3 colones. Be careful where your stepping I did see a baby snake while walking down to town in the day. Would stay here again providing we had the bathroom to ourselves again! X

  • This place is amazing. The architecture is lovely and the house is clean and beautiful. The bed, room, and bathroom were very clean and fresh. You have your own little balcony with a hammock and the front porch is also lovely for hanging out. Rachel, Maggie, Raquel, and all the people I met at "la casa redonda" were very lovely and kind. I loved doing yoga in the morning and felt very safe in the home. The location is close to Puerto Viejo (good for going out, restaurants, etc.) but also on the way to the better beaches (Cocles, Punta Uva etc.). I highly recommend bringing a flashlight and renting a bike -- the 15-20 minute walk down the dark dirt road are unpleasant at night. If you plan to go out after dark, you'll need to take a taxi or ride your bike in the dark-- taxis cost $3 each way from the house to the center of town. I highly recommend biking to Cocles beach and trying the chocolate at Caribeans. I would go back in a heart beat!

  • What can I say, this place is unique as you can probably see in the photos. Lovely rooms with balconies, surrounded by garden and jungle. Rachel was very knowledgeable and hospitable. Couldn't recommend more highly.

  • Beautiful location! We woke up at 6am to birds singing all around us. It felt like we were in a nest... so dreamy! The walk to restaurants at night is a bit dark (bring a flashlight!) but still very nice. :)

    The room was very charming. Most comfortable bed in Costa Rica! Also a sweet little private terrace with hammock.

    Hot water the first night... but not the second. I guess it is only hot when it is warm outside.

    Would definitely visit again.

  • We loved our month at the Hidden Garden, It was out of the way of the crowds, peaceful and relaxed with a burst of fun energy from beautiful family's for a night or two.
    The house is amazing, rooms large with private balconies, that was great, good wifi, Lots of hammocks and chairs to enjoy the garden, huge covered deck was great for yoga/exercise.
    Jerusha (amazing yoga), Papa, Lilly and Sam were super sweet and right on any question we had. Sorry we did not get to meet Rachel.
    Would heartily recommend this place to all. Thanks so much.

  • Hidden Garden was a really relaxing place to stay. A little off the beaten path, when you are there it feels like there is no one else around. Exactly what I was looking for.

  • Très bon accueil, la maison a beaucoup de charme et si vous êtes écolo vous apprécierai ce lieu. Tris sélectif, composte, panneaux solaires, pas d'insecticides...
    La maison est bien placée car elle reste proche du centre tout en étant assez éloignée pour être au calme et entourée de nature (beaucoup d'oiseaux, d'insectes , et même des paresseux).
    Un seul point noir, il ne faut pas avoir peur des chiens car on en croise pas mal sur le chemin.

  • Our stay at Hidden Garden Wellness in Puerto Viejo was a blissful and relaxing escape from our regularly hectic lives. Rachel's roundhouse is a beautiful eco-friendly lodge surrounded by a gorgeous garden and all the sounds of nature within it. The outdoor living room offers tons of open space with hammocks and recliners. The bedroom we had included a private balcony and bathroom. The location was the perfect compromise between secluded and just close enough to town. Rachel was an excellent and helpful host. We will definitely stay here again if we're back in Puerto Viejo!
