Location mattered for our stay since we were visiting relatives just north of Cahuita. We wanted something walking distance to their place. Even so, there were almost a dozen places that fit the bill. We chose Magellan from the reviews and for the pool. Turned out well for us. The owners are a super nice couple from southern Colorado. They...

Newly renovated hotel. Everything is new and beautiful. Lovely furniture. Rooms extremely clean and also the pool, the garden, everything is very well kept. The owners extremely nice and helpful. The breakfast cannot get any better: fresh fruit, warm bread, eggs, pancakes... We highly recommend this hotel. We would love to come back here.

Magellan is located about 1 k from Cahuita. Near to the beach, restaurants etc. Nice place, gracious hosts, great swimming pool. Loved seeing a sloth in the trees! We stayed there only one night on the way to Bocas del Toro.

If you are looking for a quiet, calm place to be right in the middle of lush forest and down the road from the beach, this is the place for you. It's clean, beautifully landscaped and rooms have ac when the heat gets to be too much. Would come here over and over again! Thanks again Ernie, Sunny and London!
