“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed January 25, 2011

Mirador de Magdalena consists of private cabanas directly on the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by lush gardens replete with birds, everything from songbirds and large hummingbirds to a hawk. The cabana had a kitchen, living/dining area, private bedroom (with feather duvet) and bathroom on the main floor. Upstairs is a loft with circular windows and bunkbed sleeping for three. The area is renowned for surfing - but we don't surf. The deck looks over the ocean and the coast. We were awoken in the morning by local crab fisherman pulling their little boats from the ocean up into the mouth of the river with oxen. At night, the sky was so black and star-filled.
It is so quiet and remote here, at least in November while we were there. This might change since the road from the south has just been paved. The road to the north is gravel and a bit dicey.
You pretty well need a car to get here and back and forth from town either Buchupureo or Cobquecura (which was badly damaged in the 2010 earthquake) to get food. You can also eat at a nearby restaurant. There is parking available at the cabana site.
Owner Angel Ochoa, who designed the cabanas and lives across the street, is very kind and charming.
We had a great experience here and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was also very reasonably priced, about 38,000CLP (about $75US per night)
