We needed a place to stay for a month in Costa Rica. The Tierra Magica was just the right place for us. We stayed in a small room with a bathroom upstairs in the house. There was plenty of closet space and drawers. There are two rooms upstairs with a common area between them. The house is beautiful. There are... More

Tierra Magica went to great lengths to provide for our safety, comfort and enjoyment. The home, grounds, food, décor and lifestyle offer a personal view of a family that has made Costa Rica home for generations. Experience with the owners offered glimpses into the charming and giving personalities that appear to be such a part of the Costa Rican culture.... More

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.

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.
