Magellan Inn, quite different than anything else in the area, built for those who would like more comfort yet still enjoy the natural surroundings of the jungle & nature.

We offer a/c rooms, fans, orthopedic mattresses, fresh white cotton linens, lots of pillows, satellite TV, WiFi, fridge, coffee maker, private terraces with comfortable rattan chairs and hammocks, pool and an open air terrace bar & dining area.

With a timeless combination of 'Old Colonial' elegance and laid back Caribbean vibe, Magellan Inn provides the ideal place for a honeymoon, romantic getaway or just to relax. Where all worries are forgotten & only the present exists.

After an exciting days adventure hiking in the National Park of Cahuita, riding on the beach or snorkeling on the coral reef, sit back and enjoy a frothy iced Piña Colada or a Frozen Margarita (we are known for some of the best cocktails in town!) and relax to the sounds of Calypso, Reggae & Blues.

Our gardens are a birdwatcher & animal lover's paradise. Attracting as many different birds and animals that can be seen anywhere out on a hike. Just lounge in a hammock and watch as toucans, parrots, sloths, iguanas, agoutis... Make their daily visits through our garden.

At only a short stroll away, 200 mt. one of the coasts longest untouched & unspoiled beaches is at your beckoning, inviting you into its clear, clean waters.

We serve a full breakfast with fresh tropical fruit from our gardens, fresh baked rolls & breads as well as eggs from our own free range & very happy chickens! Hot Costa Rican coffee, chocolate or tea.

Magellan Inn is also a sanctuary for the body, mind and soul. Enjoy Yoga classes in the late afternoons on our Yoga platform nestled in the jungle,meditate to the sounds of the jungle and waves on the beach as the sun sets over the Talamancan mountains. Relax with a massage and let the aromas of tropical flowers lull you into a moment of peace and bliss.
