This was a beautiful location that truly demonstrated the pura vida lifestyle. The grounds were beautiful, including a cascading river, rolling hills, a pond with a boat, and horses. The rooms were cute and clean, and the food was more than delicious! It was cooked on a wood stove, and our plates were piled high with traditional Costa Rican food,... More

We spent two nights at Cielo Roto and the owner Mario must have asked a thousand times if we were having a good time. He truly wanted to make our stay special. We stayed in the main lodge where the reception, kitchen, dining, and socializing areas are located. It felt like our own home and we had a great time.... More

A friend and I had a lovely weekend at Mario's place. He is a very kind and generous host, and the accommodations, while rustic, were very comfortable and enjoyable. We sat on the deck in the rocking chairs overlooking the trout pond and gardens, with a nice bottle of wine before dinner.... very tranquil and relaxing. This is a gorgeous... More

We spent two nights at the posada. The site is in a nice little valley where 14 horses are kept. The horses are quiet and secure even for children. Mario and Andre organized a ride for us and we were very pleased. We felt secure even if we had no prior experience in horse riding. There is poultry free on... More

My husband and I loved our stay at Posada Cielo Roto. We will definitely go back should we return to Costa Rica (which we would love to!). The food was truly AMAZING! Made from ingredients grown in the nearby villages and prepared by two very nice women. The night sounds are unparalleled as you can truly hear the sounds of... More

Just came back from Costa Rica and the previous times I was there, were mainly surfing trips. However, this time I just went along wherever my local friends took me. We drove to Upala visiting some agricultural properties. We stayed at Posada Cielo Roto for one night. Our host Mario was amazing, full of local knowledge, polite and charming us... More

Whole day of horseback riding over the forest and meadows to the Rio Celeste was great adventure. The owner of Cielo Roto such a generous and very kind man - Mario with his staff has served us all the time plenty... More

My visit to Cielo Roto was certainly one of the best trips I have made in Costa Rica; Mario is such a friendly and knowledgeable owner. He can recommend you what do, where to eat and his Lodge is the perfect getaway and base for exploring the area. Rio Celeste is a nature wonders beyond compare, you can easily expend... More

If you have a car don't miss this place! It was an all inclusive western experience with amazing food, great guides (Spanish only at the time), well maintained horses and property. It isn't a luxury hotel it's a real nature experience.
