Tierra Magnifica, an award-winning, luxury boutique hotel, sits perched high above Playa Guiones in Nosara, Costa Rica.

Our friendly staff says good morning and means it.  Your door stopper is simply a smooth heavy rock you found at the beach.

On the way to dinner you realize you haven’t seen your shoes since breakfast and you may never look for them.

It is this experience that has made Tierra Magnifica the top rated vacation property in Costa Rica for the last five years in a row - located at one of the 20 best surf beaches worldwide.

Our mission is to bring simplicity back to your life by allowing you to re-calibrate.


We look forward to seeing you here soon.

It was such a laid back location, really helped me relax. The proximity to activities and the beach was phenomenal. The views were jaw-dropping, the food prepared on-site was the best I could have imagined and the attention to detail was like no other.

Thanks so much for making our stay one to remember.
