Magellan Inn

2 km (1 mile) north of town at end of Playa Negra road, Cahuita, Limón, 70403, Costa Rica

One of Cahuita's most elegant lodgings, this group of bungalows is graced with tile-floor terraces facing a pool and gardens growing on an ancient coral reef. Carpeted rooms have original paintings and custom-made wooden furniture. A few rooms come with air-conditioning, a rarity on the Caribbean coast. Feast on intensely flavored French and Creole seafood specialties at the Casa Creole, open for dinner each evening on the hotel's patio; don't miss the house pâté or the homemade ice cream. The open-air bar rocks to great blues and jazz recordings in the evening and mellows with classical music at breakfast.
