In the summer of 2018, Tierra Magnifica Boutique Hotel opened up El Sendero de Serenidad, their brand new Waterfall Nature Trail & Forest Decks nestled deep down in the surrounding jungle for guests to enjoy.
To visit this mystical location, guests follow a path beginning at Tierra Magnifica’s Spa & Yoga Pavilion that winds around the property through tropical flora and fauna, down the wood crafted stairs, over two serenity viewing decks and on to a flowing waterfall and swimming hole.
Tierra Magnifica's guests find themselves lost in another world, floating in the refreshing water, breathing the ionized crisp air and looking up to through the treetops at the blue sky above. But what’s getting the most attention is the story upon the discovery and creation behind it.
We asked owner and creator of Tierra Magnifica, Steve Jacobus, to give us a look into the history of this natural beauty. “Back in 2005, when we bought the property that is now the Tierra Magnifica Boutique Hotel, my boys were 7, 8 and 10 years old and at the peak of their adventurousness,” he reflected back. “On one particular afternoon in rainy season, when the boys were anxiously seeking out their next big adventure, I did what every good Dad would do… I gave them rubber boots and a machete and sent them loose in the jungle surrounding the property. They would come back with exciting stories and even some new pets.”
