At Luz en el Cielo, we felt like living in trees for a while, and we LOVED it. Sleeping in soft and clean blankets, waking up to the sound of howler monkeys, being served a queen's breakfast, having showers in a tidy outside bathroom, getting down to the village following a little path in the forest… That was close to...

Had a great time here. Everyone was very nice. Ask for Mitch. He was quick to offer what ever help he could give. Flor will give you great trip recommendations so speak to her before booking any tours. Over all a great nature place. If you get lucky then you can see the monkeys right outside of your window.

It was clean and comfortable with a friendly community and just far enough out of town for it to be quiet. What set it apart for me is that even though I was confused and needed to change my plans over and over the staff, particularly Mitch, was patient and kind. Thanks for the stay.

Luz en el Cielo attracts positive open minded travelers from all over, modern nomads, and awesome hippies. Tons of solo travelers and small groups of travelers, very easy to meet people here.

I showed up at 11:30pm with no reservation and sure enough they had a bed for me. There's free wifi, the staff are absolutely lovely, it's clean, and the complimentary breakfast is always outstanding. Definitely the place to go if you find yourself in Playa Montezuma. English and Spanish are both spoken by the majority of the staff, and there... More

This place is rustic and super charming. A short walk up the hill from town. Friendly staff and guests, adequate communal kitchen, yummy free breakfast. We shared a Christmas meal with the other guests (30, or so, people) in the communal dining area (a relaxing place to hang, with hammocks and free wi-fi), and it was the perfect way to... More
