We spent 2 nights at Pedacito de Cielo and we loved it. It’s a bit remote, I suggest you have a 4WD to get there due to the dirt road. It’s got a lot of wildlife all around, from tiny colibris to big crocodiles in...More

About
Description
The translation of Pedacito de Cielo is "Little Piece of Sky." This 300 hectare site situated on the San Carlos River in the San Carlos region is run by Marco Tulio Hidalgo. He is eager to share his little piece More of heaven with you. The lodge sits right above the San Carlos River and private bungalows come equipped with a lounging area and a porch overlooking the river. There are two decks that sit high above the Rio San Carlos and offer great views of the river, the setting sun and makes for easy birding. In the evenings, the calls of both the Scarlet and Great Green Macaws are heard, and both are frequently seen. There are gardens, fruit and fruit trees right outside of the individual cabins that attract honeycreepers, orioles, oropendolas and even toucans right to your door. The reserve for the lodge is actually about 2 km from the lodge. At the reserve there are a number of trails that take you through quality rainforest and native species reforestation plantations. There is also a separate lagoon to explore. There are covered decks and trails for you to bird from at the lagoon. The forest hosts hard to find species such as the Dusky Antbird, while the lagoon is home to rare species such as the Rufescent Tiger-Heron. Don Marco can set up a ride to take to you to the reserve, but the birding along the road is great on its own. You are welcome to bird without a guide; however Hugo is the guide available to take you to and through the reserve. Although Hugo does not speak English, he is able to communicate in one form or another, and visitors enjoy his company. In addition to birding and hiking, horseback riding tours and tours of the San Carlos River via kayak are available. Another highlight at Mi Pedacito de Cielo is undoubtedly the delicious cuisine cooked mostly with fruits and vegetables grown right on site. Marco is extremely accommodating and will do just about whatever you need to make your stay enjoyable. Less
