stayed there one night and wished it could have been longer. hands down best place to stay in Cerro Punta. Clean, all the accessories, lots of spots for outdoor seating and very comfortable reading room. Also, try Fanny's for lunch or dinner...very good.

My husband and I spent five nights here in the cooler highlands of Panama with our hosts at Cielito Sur. Every day we had a delicious breakfast, including a breakfast and lunch they prepared for us to take in the field for a complete day of birding. Glenn was on top of every place to go birding and lined up... More

Cielito Sur is a lovely place with sparkling streams, lovely flowers, fruit trees and beautiful birds flitting about everywhere. My husband and I are birders and at Cielito Sur we truly found a small heaven of birds. We stayed at the self-catering Casita for 2 weeks and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of our stay. We suspect that we... More

We spent 2 nights at Cielito Sur as part of a 2-week trip in Panama. We were absolutely satisfied with what we received, including a cosy room, delicious home-made breakfast, useful briefing upon arrival and much hospitality in general. We can only recommend Cielito Sur for shorter or longer stays in the area. An additional advantage is that the Volcán/Cerro... More

Cielito Sur was just pefect. We spent 10 glorious days watching the hummingbirds and justvenjoying ourselves. Janet and Glenn have created a paradise---and we were lucky enough to share it. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, it's very quiet, and they have all the added touches (flowers, chocolates, fast internet) just right. We will come back.

Cielito Sur is in a very quiet setting, surrounded by nature, including hummingbirds galore. We spent two nights there and although it was New Year's Eve in a country which doesn't need any excuse to party, we slept very well. We were in the spacious and clean Kuna Room which had dozens of molas. There is also a large community... More

Spaciously roomed B&B with good common areas located in pretty gardens. Good breakfast with many hummingbirds outside windows. Can be cold at night although heaters are provided. However, it is overpriced in our view and the pillows could with renewing. A car is essential.
