The Magellan Boutique Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Cahuita. You are only a 5 minute walk away from the beach. The beach feels like it is your own because it is very private. The room was great but the bed was amazing. There is nothing like coming back to your room after a day of adventure to...

What an excellent place to visit! The Magellan Boutique Hotel is an exceptional property with all the luxuries of back home. My Cabina was clean and cool and steps away from the jungle and beach! Playa Grande is pristine, uncrowded and only minutes from the MBH. Also, the staff is beyond helpful! They made a great breakfast and gave me...

Ernie and Sunny have six beautiful chalet style rooms. The rooms are clean beyond and they make it their business to help in any way from arranging tours to a complementary breakfast to recommending good restaurants. The property is surrounded by jungle atmosphere with much wildlife in and around the property. The swimming pool is quite relaxing with sea water...

What a beautiful place! The Magellan is located only two or three minutes walking to the black sand beaches of Playa Negra.

If there was a better place to stay, I'd know it. I've visited Cahuita every August for the last 15 years, and I've stayed nearly every place that there is to stay here; this is, BY FAR, the best place in town! The staff is amazing; they were at my beckon call. I don't know if I can stay anywhere...
