Sometimes, it takes deep diving into the world’s natural wonders to rediscover who you truly are. Begin your new journey in the soulful town of Nosara, where surfers reign year-round, the dirt roads outnumber the paved streets, and blissful escape meets local energy. Begin your journey of self-discovery at Tierra Magnifica, the premier intimate boutique hotel in Playa Guiones, Nosara, Costa Rica, that welcomes guests like new family members with authentic Costa Rican warmth and hospitality. 

This multi-awarded boutique sits on the hilltop, offering every room stunning views of Costa Rica’s mountains, forest valleys, beach, and ocean. Days spent with us are sunny and serene, and schedules are determined by the sun, surf, and spontaneous conversations with the chef or staff. Evenings at Tierra Magnifica are spent relaxing in an open-air bar lounge and dining al fresco at our in-house restaurant Huacas and can be followed by sipping an Aperitif under the starry night sky at our Alba fire circle.

Upon entering, guests shouldn’t expect a cavernous lobby waiting at a front desk. Instead, you’ll step onto our open-plan property, set before the sprawling backdrop of the jungle and ocean, and be greeted with a warm smile and a fresh, local fruit drink to quench your thirst. This is how your Costa Rica vacation begins.

From there, prepare to be whisked away to one of our 14 ocean-view bedrooms (five rooms with a king bed, eight suites, and a 1,500 sq. ft. Master suite) next to the Pacific Coast, where you can experience breathtaking sunrises and sunsets every day. 

The hotel’s rooms are designed to make the most of the natural surroundings, focusing on simplicity and letting the stunning views do the talking. All rooms have a balcony and lounge furnishings for lazy afternoons, and the beds are big and luxurious, perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring. With care and consideration for such a authentic experience, it is no wonder that Tierra Magnifica was awarded the Condé Nast Johansens Award for Best Small & Exclusive Property back in 2021 and 2023.

As an extension of its Costa Rican warmth and the confluence with surrounding nature, Tierra Magnifica is an eco-friendly hotel that takes pride in its sustainability efforts. All its bathroom products are environmentally friendly, and the restaurant only serves locally sourced produce. The chefs will tailor each meal to your taste, and the bartenders can mix any cocktail you desire. In addition to the pool and morning yoga, plenty of adrenaline-pumping activities are nearby for you to enjoy—ziplining and horseback riding, to name a few.

Tierra Magnifica also boasts of Nosara’s unique heritage with nature through fun activities. Yogis, surfers, and environmentalists developed the town in the 1970s, preserving its environment with a bit of modernity as seen nowhere else. In true fashion, the beachfront and surrounding area will forever be untouched by commercial development, so the coast remains a haven for travelers and locals wishing to escape commercialism. These efforts are reflected in the boutique hotel’s Condé Nast Johansens Best House, Villa, or Serviced Apartment Award in 2022!  Enjoy a yoga session surrounded by monkeys, a spa treatment with the sound of the ocean, or a still down the on-site nature trail to a private waterfall, all just steps from your room.

Because of these sustainable efforts, Nosara retains its unspoiled heritage, where the pavement ends and time stands still. Tourism and wellness blend seamlessly with local agriculture and fishermen to create a true escape for travelers looking for the next great destination discovery as it has been called Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice for two years in a row: 2021 and 2022.
