Tierra Magica is a lovely oasis conveniently located in OldTown Escazu. Exellent value, charming hosts, and wonderful breakfast among luscious garden plants of open terrace. Highly recommend the experience.

We spent 2 nights at Tierra Magica and it was our first destination in CR. Of the 5 B&Bs we stayed in CR, this was our favorite in terms of room space, breakfast, hospitality, and more. Barbara and Alto were great hosts. They were helpful, friendly, and we had a lot of privacy. Our king bed/room was spacious and lovely,... More

We spent three enjoyable and relaxing days and nights at Barbara's and Otto's nice little B&B! The room and the bathroom are very spacious, tastefully decorated - even the lighting is perfect. The breakfast was delicious (wonderful bread!), and the owners very accommodating - especially in regard to transport support. The bus stop to San José is a 5 minutes... More

I really felt like I had stepped into a magical place when my sister and I were welcomed through the ornate wooden gate at this lovely B&B! From the time we arrived until our stay ended, Barbara and Otto treated us like family. It was our first visit to Costa Rica and they were just a wealth of information as... More

We spent our last night in Costa Rica at Tierra Magica. Having fallen in love with Costa Rica, and every Casita, Cabina and home we'd stayed in, we ultimately regretted our decision to spend our last night at an airport hotel. Taking the advice of one of our hosts, we managed, on short notice to find an available room at... More

I highly recommend Tierra Magica. Barbara and Otto are so welcoming. They took care of my sister and I just like family. Every need we had was met with complete satisfaction and a warm friendly smile. The breakfast each morning was really something to look forward to. The food was prepared to perfection and served to us with grace and... More

I absolutely and unconditionally recommend this very special haven in the middle of busy Escazú. Barbara truly embodies the justly famed Tico hospitality. She is always there for you with helpful advice, tourist information, taxis, you name it. The breakfasts are memorable, giving typical Costa Rican fare and added touch of elegance and class. The rooms are very spacious, clean... More

Not far from San Jose. Airy, large rooms with cable TV, nice garden. Reasonably priced, the breakfast is a highlight. All the staff try to help, like finding the bus or a restaurant. They call you a taxi if you need one. Price is good, close to everything. Safe place. I will be definitely come back again.
