In 2004, Jacqueline and Marcelo established these Caribbean-style hotels, choosing to protect the jungle while sharing their beautiful land with the conscious traveler at a fair price. Hotel La Diosa is a beachfront property featuring handmade Caribbean-style bungalows.

The Goddess Garden hosts Yoga teacher certifications, yoga and dance retreats, spiritual retreats, workshops, eco-tours to the Bribri reserve, and adventure getaways. These offerings cater to travelers eager to immerse themselves in the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, experiencing the Howler monkey corridor, tree sloths, and bird watching amidst grand trees, lush jungle, and ocean views.

The Goddess Garden, nestled deep in the jungle, functions as an eco-resort and spiritual center. It includes a business center, a healing spa, a palapa yoga room, and a stunning yoga studio—the ideal place for meditation and blending with the jungle sounds.
