My husband and I stayed in this lovely and unique B & B for one week while we visited San José and the surrounding gorgeous mountains and volcanoes. We 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,... 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.

Tierra Magica is a friendly B&B situated in Escazu, not too far from the airport. I booked via booking.com and reserved a taxi through the B&B directly. Pick up was punctual and service friendly. In the guesthouse i was welcomed by Otto and Barbara, who showed me to my room: this was a bit bigger than average and the bathroom... More

I stayed here for several nights and can't say enough about how good it is. The setting is so beautiful - and in the middle of San Jose it seems unbelievable. Flowers, verandas, shaded breakfast nooks with blossoms peeking over your shoulder. Kind of like paradise. And the rooms are very large and beautifully done. The tiled bathroom, the wood... More

We recently spent two nights at the "Tierra Magica" and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a small hotel in an excellent location not far from the hospital Cima. The hostess and her staff were very friendly and attentive. The rooms comfortable and tastefully decorated, The breakfast was excellent.

This is a piece of paradise and you will not want to leave I promise. The comp. breakfast is scrumptious and healthy too. If you need any thing at all Barbra and her husband will help. You can not go wrong here. You will be glad you stayed here---it's Magica. There is electricity in the air I tell you.

The room and home was lovely, but the busy street right next to it was very unpleasant. I don't know what the other reviewers definition of peace and quiet is, but mine certainly doesn't include relentless loud engines noises. Not at all relaxing for me. I thought it was a little expensive as well.
