The Posada Ceilo Roto was a great experience. We arrived at the lovely open house and were seated immediately for a lunch, coffees and tamarind juice. Mario made us feel very welcome, and we shown to our own very rustic lodge with a covered porch. It continued to rain off and on the entire day and we toured Rio Celeste... More

Stayed for a night while studying abroad in Costa Rica, and if you are looking for a rustic place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous world around us, posada cielo roto is for you! Our whole group loved it! The food is amazing, and the people are wonderful. We couldn't have asked for better.

I hate to be the first person to leave a three-star review of this place, but our experience here was just OK. Other reviewers have focused on the natural beauty of the surrounding area, the “authenticity” of the experience, the abundance of food, and Mario’s hospitality. Let me give you my take on each of those in turn. I will... More

The trip to RIO CELESTE was the most amazing trip, the guide was very nice and he had knowledge of the place. Fireplace at la POSADA, was awesome,... More

This was a beautiful location that truly demonstrated the eco-tourism in Costa Rica. The food and the staff is excellent. The Tenorio Volcano area is gorgeous. I really recommend the horse rides in the posada is fun and you can really appreciate the beauty of the area. "Pura Vida"

Mario, chico and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome and involved in the beautiful, natural surroundings of the Tenorio Volcano area. Beautiful mix of being outdoors while still sheltered with a lovely seating area by the fireplace. Fresh, local food made 3 times a day as we ate family style. Did not feel like tourism.

Authentic, lovely, welcoming – the Posada Ceilo Roto was an amazing experience. We arrived her quite by accident due to a mistake with our other reservation. After a very rough road which we drove in the pouring rain, we arrived at the lovely open house and were seated for a warm lunch of tilapia, rice, beans, salad and tamarind juice.... More
