About the Property

Private House on 11acre Ocean/Beach Front Reserve - 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (sleeps 2)

Mar al Cielo is a private oceanfront vacation retreat near Lo de Marcos on 4.4 hectares (11 acres) of secluded jungle and beachfront paradise with accommodation just for two. Just a 50 minute drive north of the Puerto Vallarta Airport and 5 minutes from Lo de Marcos, it is easy to get to yet a world away. Unlike other oceanfront rentals, here at Mar al Cielo you alone are privileged to intimate interactions with nature and wildlife while being surrounded by unsurpassed serene beauty, secluded beaches, panoramic ocean views and pristine tropical jungle. Mar al Cielo has over 2 kilometers of private groomed jungle walking trails for guests that seek to explore the truly wild places that remain.

Dream of Whale Watching in Mexico?... Mar al Cielo sits along the seasonal migration route and breeding area of the great Humpback Whales. Here you can see and hear a spectacular show of the giant whales splash and breach right out in front of you!

Mar al Cielo and the local area is also renowned for its World Class Bird Watching ... with over 300 listed bird species in this region, whether you are an avid bird watcher or casual observer you can't help but be taken by the diversity of color, sights and sounds the tropical birds have to offer.

Walk down to the secluded beach or explore private jungle walking trails & hilltop vistas while capturing glimpses of armadillos or coatimundis wandering by, picnic on the beach, swim in the ocean, or simply relax & take in the natural surroundings of the soothing ocean breeze, tropical birds and butterflies. Enjoy the Oceanfront Palapa Lounge, another private space perfect for swinging in hammocks, sunning in the sand, doing yoga or having an oceanfront massage. With a library, nature guide books, binoculars, additional kitchenette & dining area and stunning 180 degree ocean view with incredible year-round sunsets, the Palapa Lounge is the perfect place to pass the days away!

Accommodations at Mar al Cielo are unique and luxurious, drawing on regional architecture, design motifs, materials and artwork. Your casa at Mar al Cielo is a self-contained home with terraces on two levels, fully equipped kitchen with BBQ grill, 1-bedroom with king size bed and lush cotton linens, private outdoor shower & bath with ocean views and more stars than you could ever imagine!

Here at Mar al Cielo we are strongly committed to protecting our rare and precious bit of oceanfront paradise and to contributing in a positive way to the nearby community. Guests are encouraged to speak the language, savor the food and enjoy the beauty of Mexican living. Come to immerse yourself in a world where privacy, nature and relaxation become your reality.

To get to Mar al Cielo you can easily rent a car from the airport in Puerto Vallarta or we can arrange to have an Airport pick up and return trip (including a grocery stop on the way in). Taxis are available in Lo de Marcos and from Mar al Cielo on request. Daily or weekly car rentals are also available from Lo de Marcos.

Mar al Cielo offers an enchanting tropical experience, an awakening place where one can feel deeply connected rejuvenated & inspired. Your private oceanfront retreat awaits!
