I have traveled all over the world and I have to say that Las Nubes was very difficult to leave. It's beautiful and peaceful, Filipe's food and company is superlative, and it offers the experience of sustainable living. Whether resting on the hammock outside the cabina, lazing in the Nirvana pool, or doing yoga on the deck, there is a... More

We recently spent 3 nights at Las Nubes and it was a remarkable place to stay. Philip and Augustin were incredible host. Philip is the owner and was with us the whole time, he is a self made person and an incredible host. He can cook up anything you want. And everything is fresh and organic and most of the... More

Dinner was also outstanding, and fairly priced - We saw a lot of animals in our stay. Bright colored frogs, a slug in the middle of the road, a family... More

Before deciding if you wish to spend time at Las Nubes, you have to ask yourself the question; 'what type of person am I?' If you are of the ilk that needs your creature comforts, such as air conditioning or wi-fi, or if you are afraid of insects and nature...then this isn't the place for you. You should look at... More

We had a wonderful experience that began right from the start when we drove up the mountainous terrain to get to Las Nubes - it was such an exciting adventure to reach the top and once we arrived, we were welcomed with open arms from Filip, the friendly owner, who made us feel right at home and always made sure...

Once arrived at Las Nubes, you think you are dreaming... you immediately feel part of all that beautiful nature around you, you look around, you are in perfect harmony. It is a very special place that gives you a feeling of peacefulness, of self-confidence, of beauty... words can not really describe this. That is the reason why it is worth... More
