This was our first horseback riding vacation and it exceeded all our expectations! We enjoyed the accommodations--just six guest rooms, and the gourmet food. We loved the fact that every day was planned for us, from riding on the beach and jungle, to snorkeling, to hiking with a guide in the national park, to a visit to the sloth sanctuary.... More

My friend and I stayed at the Magellan Inn for a week. The room was spacious and scrupulously clean. Terry, the owner, is friendly and helpful who runs a very professional operation. The grounds are groomed every day and the staff is helpful and efficient. The fresh rolls and fruit for breakfast make a great start to the day. We... More

Hotel Magellan Inn is a delightful little spot to stay in Cahuita. It's in easy walking distance of beauiful, undeveloped beaches, and decent walking distance from the town of Cahuita and the park there that follows the coast just past the town. Terry is an excellent host who will arrange any number of outings (surfing lessons, snorkeling, tours, yoga, etc.)... More

I have stayed several times at the Magellan Inn in Cahuita, owned and operated by Terry LIllian Newton. She runs a wonderful B&B. THe rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed. THe gardens and pool of the hotel are beautiful. I highly recommend this B&B

Bravo Terry and crew. Away from the main road enough to feel a part of nature, yet close enough to get to all of the local attractions. Ride horses for miles on the beach - they live right on the property! Terry will arrange wildlife, beach, horse, chocolate tours and more... Cahuita is on the Caribbean side, but only a... More

Stayed here for one night during a recent tour of Costa Rica and wished I could have stayed longer! It's a small and intimate lodge within 250m of the beach which extends a special welcome for yoga and horse riding enthusiasts + anyone who needs to relax and chill out. It has a wonderfully calm ambience and beautifully tended gardens.... More

Out of all the places we've stayed in Cahuita, Magellan was truly the tropical paradise we were looking for. Lush tropical garden with an inviting pool, surrounded by the sounds of nature and two resident parrots complete the picture perfect setting. The owner, Terry, and her staff were very warm and welcoming. The hotel itself was immaculate and the room... More

No over zealous activity coordinator, no time schedule, simply a wonderful place to decompress. We enjoyed a lovely understated room, set within in a tropical coastal garden. Magellan's location allowed us to park the car and walk to local restaurants, eco-rescue preserves and the quaint little beach town of Cahuita --all via a "back" road on the coast. Terry, and...

A small hotel in a great part of Costa Rica. We found a laid-back environment that was attentive when we wanted something and offered quiet privacy too. The town is a little too far to walk but had pleasant restaurants. The Chocolate Museum initially sounded expensive but was well worth the price. The Magellan Inn is not really geared for... More
