I travelled in Costa Rica for a month (December 2014/Jan 2015) and this was the first place I stopped at after leaving San Jose. I have to say that El Salto is one of my favourite places (and not just in Costa Rica) and the fact that we returned to the same place twice during our month in Costa Rica... More

Our stay was too short! If a holiday location can make you want to stay this is it!! Warm welcome, amazing food, perceptive host and incredible scenery in one of those most scenic countries made our visit memorable. Manuel quickly sold us on the idea of hiking to the waterfall visible from our room. This hike is a huge highlight... More

Great views and atmosphere. We felt very welcomed and relaxed. We could watch a movie from a hammock and get some honey tea. The place has got clean rooms and bathroom. What distinguishes it from other places is that there is a great view on mountains also including a waterfall. It's sort of secluded and hidden, just as if it... More

A fun hotel experience. We shared the owner's special homemade beer with another couple. The food was amazing ! Our room had a fantastic view. Waking up to that was beyond beautiful. We had a lovely breakfast of mango pancakes and he really made sure we all had enough food. We signed the wall before we left and our 10... More

El Salto is a great place to kick back, enjoy a home brewed beer, and watch the sun play across the surface of Lake Cachi. The view from their balcony must be seen to be believed. The Orosi Valley is a special one, a land of perpetual springtime. El Salto is located in a small wrinkle facing a waterfall. They're... More

The views at El Salto Inn are simply breathtaking. There is a wonderful waterfall. You can watch the clouds drift across the valley far below you. And the bird watching is second to none. Manuel is gregarious and friendly. His cooking is superb -- one of the nicest breakfasts we had in Costa Rica. The rooms are clean and comfortable.... More

We had no idea how awesome this place was when we booked the,reservation. The view is magnificent and you can hear the waterfall all night long. The rooms,were really nice, especially for a budget price. You must let Manueal guide you on a hike down the mountain ( he used his machete to clear the path), through a river over... More
