Atenas bungalow description

Poco Cielo is nestled in the heart of Costa Rica in the authentic and spectacular mountain town of Atenas, truly one of the most heavenly places on earth. Atenas is rated by National Geographic as having 'one of the best climates in the world.' It is home to some of the most desirable places to stay, most notably Poco Cielo which is aptly named and translates as 'Just a little piece of heaven.'

Poco Cielo is located in the western Central Valley in a small rural town of Atenas. It is ideally located and the perfect base for exploring lush rainforest, enchanting cloud forest, raging rivers, cascading waterfalls, bubbling volcanoes, artisan villages, coffee plantations and many more nearby attractions.

This little piece of heaven is situated on a private and quiet 6 acre quinta with easy and quick access to banks, groceries and stores as well some of the best restaurants in Costa Rica.

We try to make your stay very memorable at Poco Cielo.

One of our best features is our large infinity edge pool and open air rancho, a hub for outdoor activity and entertainment. The large rancho is equipped with a full kitchen, stereo, wireless internet and surround sound home theater.

Our cozy yet modestly priced bungalow comes complete with a fully-equipped kitchen; living room with 32 in LED , Cable TV , DVD and CD player; bedroom with a queen-sized bed and bathroom that features an endless supply of hot water. The other room has 2 queen beds and can sleep up to 4 guests and it also has a separate bathroom. And for those on a working vacation or just wanting to stay connected, there is free wireless Internet. Have a seat on our handicraft rocking chairs on your own patio and enjoy the view of the central valley. PS The early bird sees a Toucan or 3

Spend a sunny afternoon splashing in the pool . If you are up to it you can take a hike down to the river and enjoy the smells and sounds of our primary forest .

Poco Cielo is the perfect, relaxing place to rest after a long day of hiking, shopping, swimming - that is if you ever leave it to explore!


We are conveniently located 25 minutes from the airport, 1 hr. to Jaco Beach on the west coast and 1.15 hr. to Volcano Poas .
