Was fortunate to stay at the Magellan on our way to and from Panama. We had a wonderful king size bed with a delicious mattress and pillows. I floated to sleep each night in comfort. After travelling via car and boats for days on end, it was so nice to rest my bones on a comfortable mattress and assortment of...

Beautiful little hotel in Cahuita. Very welcoming. The rooms are clean and have hammocks in the front to relax. Some downsides : There are a lot of animals here. Chickens and rooster (noisy during the night and early morning of course), we had a horse in the back of our room and dogs. I don't mind animals but sometimes I...

Wife and I stayed here for 6 nights. Magellan is nice, but I would say 6 nights may be a bit much. Magellan is not too hard to find, once you get off the main road its a short drive on the mud road, on your left hand side just before the t-junction. The room is basic but clean. Coffee...

Hi, This was a nice review, I just wanted to say that I am sorry if there were somethings that you were not happy about. I was worried when you mentioned the a/c units, as they are new Frigidaire air conditioners and are actually bigger than needed for the room size. The rooms get freezing pretty quickly. As I couldn't...

IT was getting dark and we were nervous, unable to find a place to stay for the night. We saw a sign - Magellan Inn and turned down the dirt road filled with rain puddles. It didn't look promising until we saw the light at the gate. I got out to check availability and the rooms. It was November 1993...

This is a great place and looked to be the most modern and nicest place in the area. We stayed for 3 nights and the location was great, the beach was just a 300 meter walk away, the breakfast was coffee, juice, fruit, and homemade breads, AC worked great, nice pool area. Thank you Marleny for the great service!

I recently spent six days at this beautifully landscaped, friendly, interesting, comfortable and peaceful Inn in Cahuita, Costa Rica. It has a lovely and efficient owner, Terry, who did her best to make my stay comfortable and interesting. I was on a trip with a 12 year old grandson who is busy every minute. I wasn't sure he'd be okay...

This is our 3rd time staying in Cahuita and we will return to this B&B. The room was clean and had AC! Terry and Kika were great and scheduled our excursions. The grounds were fabulous - within 5 minutes of being at the inn, we saw toucans. The horses, chickens, dogs and birds were a perfect addition - especially if...

My girlfriend and I just returned from a 10-night stay in Costa Rica, and the best three of those nights were at the Magellan Inn. It wasn't until we went horseback riding near here that we discovered this end of Cahuita, and nearby Playa Negra and Playa Grande. Just a short drive out of town on a bumpy but driveable...
