WATCH Wildlife Poolside!!! My Ocean view slice of Heaven is above them all!!..Ask my guests!!! Cielomar is an eclectic secluded lodge on a breezy cool ridge above Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva
.( 3 miles along the coast from Puerto Viejo).

This place is absolutely amazing! A wonderful place to stay, I personally couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica after staying here! Two different species of monkeys, at the same time, 50 ft. away lounging on branches while your lounging by the pool, this says it all! Caretaker, who was a great guy all around,...

Just jungle and ocean as far as you can see. And if you pay attention, you will see various monkeys, sloths, toucans, parrots. One great thing about being up...

About the neighborhood
Cielomar is the highest house on the ridge above Playa Chiquita and Punta Uva and backs our own Lost World Preserve..a canyon where clouds are born. It is at the end of a road dotted with lovely lodges and retirement homes and provides complete seclusion,with easy access to beaches and
the other wild life in Puerto Viejo 3 miles down the beach road.Our hill is steep and Costa Rica specializes in potholes so 4 wheel drive is recommended for your ease and comfort.
