Cielo Lodge was built as a respite for people seeking to reconnect—with nature, with each other, and ultimately with themselves.
Our objective is to create a transformative experience, where every interaction is a chance for guests to engage with the world in a different way.
Situated on a lush green mountain just behind Golfito overlooking the Golfo Dulce, the lodge is set amidst 380 sprawling acres of primary and secondary rainforest. Our neighbor is nature – there are no buildings immediately around us, yet we have the convenience of easy access (30 minutes) to the nearby village.
We like to consider ourselves a secret, yet secure, hideaway offering the best of both worlds – close in, yet an entire world away.
Staying at Cielo Lodge is an incredibly intimate experience. Our Six Canopy Suites accommodate between 2-4 people, for a total lodge occupancy of just 12-24 guests. Each suite is elevated and separate from other guests, offering ultimate privacy.
The lodge was designed with a modern and minimalist approach—allowing the outside in. Each suite offers incredible views of the nearby canopy.
Golfito is off the standard tourist track. It is a port town and does not boast a town beach, which is why it draws fewer tourists. Yet it is the incredible gateway to amazing natural beauty. It sits between a mountainous rainforest and the serene, tranquil Golfo Dulce, offering the best of Costa Rica’s renowned wildlife. We share the same greenbelt as the celebrated Osa Peninsula.
Our Commitment to Sustainability:
- Cielo Lodge is committed to sustainability and to protecting the amazing natural resources that abound our property.
- We use solar and micro-hydro to feed a battery bank. Those batteries then feed our lodge.
- We are part of the Fonafifo Program—a governmental program that protects Costa Rica’s rainforest.
- We have planted over 4,000 trees—fruit trees to native hardwoods.
- We use bio gardens as a secondary septic treatment, and we use biodegradable soaps and cleaning supplies
- Additionally, we have partnered with several local NGOs who are focused on protecting the environment (e.g., Osa Ecology which rescues Sea Turtles and Osa Conservation, which is tracking all the wildlife in the area through complex cameras and audio studies.
