Marco and his team do a great job. The view and the garden is amazing. The rooms spacious and charming, the balcony great - we could see the river and a lot of Leguans just laying at the trees. The food is delicious, Marco is a great cook and the chicken with palm heart is a menu excellent!!! The tour... More

Gorgeous location right on the San Carlos River. The owner and staff were super-friendly, and very accommodating. A couple of bird feeding stations attracted a great variety of birds, including parrots, toucans, honeycreepers, and oropendulas. The owner went out of his way to make our stay what we wanted -- we weren't that interested in a short group river trip... More

Don't bother going somewhere else. Indeed, a long and heavy drive, but it is all worth it. The location is so great. The region is better since less touristic, the location of the hotel is even better. Bungalows in the middle of the forest, on the riverside, looking out over treetops and the river. Good, clean and very spacious bungalows,... More

We stayed 2 nights at Pedacito de Cielo and it was our best time in Costa Rica…if you’re looking for a luxurious resort this is not the right spot, but if you’re looking for ADVENTURE, JUNGLE, MONKEYS, birds, beautiful gardens and communion with the nature, then IT HAS IT ALL! The road to get there was really a hassle…you don’t... More

Nice food, friendly people and lovely nature. You should do the rain forest with all those small frogs and crazy monkeys. Also, the trip by boat on the Rio San Carlos is very nice. Wheather could be better, but nature was terrific! We would love to come again!

Pedacito de Cielo, little piece of (the) sky - a name aptly chosen for this place! I guess the facts are known: it takes you quite some time on a dirt road (once you have passed Pital) to reach this remote area. Pital is the last settlement worth the name on your way to the lodge so you better get... More
