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. Wake up to the sounds of exotic birds and the breeze rustling the palms. Come sit at the Oceanfront Palapa Lounge to gaze at flocks of sea birds, parrots and eagles sailing by. Dream of whale watching in Mexico? At Mar al Cielo you can see and hear giant whales splash and breach just a short distance in front of you as you relax or swing in your hammock. Explore the trails and discover the wonders of this rare and precious habitat. Mar al Cielo is perfect for birdwatching...how many of the more than 300 listed bird species in this area can you identify? Walk down to the secluded beach or climb the hilltop path to see spectacular ocean and jungle views while capturing glimpses of armadillos or coatimundis just wandering by. Picnic on the beach, swim in the ocean, wander 10 minutes along the sand to the next little bay to enjoy breakfast or a taste of fresh grilled fish and cerveza at our local restaurant, or simply just relax and enjoy while you gaze at the stars soaking in the outdoor bath. Accommodations at Mar al Cielo are unique and luxurious, drawing on regional architecture, design motifs, materials and artwork. Casa Mar al Cielo is a self-contained home with terraces on two levels, fully equipped kitchen, 1-bedroom with king size bed and lush cotton linens with private outdoor shower and bath. Enjoy amazing views from every angle of beaches, ocean, mountains, tropical jungle 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). Daily or weekly car rentals are also available from Lo de Marcos. Taxis are available in Lo de Marcos and on request. Beds: 1 King BedMore
