Went glamping with my partner and some friends at Saladero in mid March. Harvey and Susan are excellent, hands on hosts. The meals were AMAZING, we caught pargo (snapper) fishing right off the shore, went kayaking and paddle boarding, swimming, bird watching, hiking the beautiful trails... I highly recommend this experience to all nature lovers and environmentalists - even those... More

Susan and Harvey are wonderful hosts. The meals and snacks are terrific. Their support staff are lovely, helpful local people. It's a remarkable, total immersion into the fantastic Golfo Dulce ecosystem.

We had a great time at Saladero, thanks Harvey and Adam. I hope I can meet Susan next time. Never have I felt so at home so quickly. Meals felt like a family dinner! A perfect laid-back mellow atmosphere. Kayaking, snorkelling, fishing, bird-watching, hammock relaxing, it was all there. Thanks to Robert for all the fresh fish. I will definitely... More

We had an amazing time in the most remote eco lodge I have been to. Saladero is located in a primary forest, in the heart of a private national park and right in front of the ocean. Harvey and Susan are the best hosts you will ever meet. A wide range of activities are available and included in your night... More

Each visit to Saladero gets better! I wondered if there was any way that our 7th and longest visit to Saladero Eco Lodge could top the others, and it did! Accommodations and meals are fantastic! Imagine a remote tropical paradise away from all city noises, filled with migrating butterflies flying overhead, dolphins, plentiful fish, many birds (macaws, toucans and an... More

Saladero is a gem! Accessible only by boat, Saladero is set in primary forest: a remote, tranquil, beautiful, place with comfortable accommodation and wonderful hosts. We did lots of bird watching, had a wonderful kayaking trip into remote parts of the Esquinas river mangrove tidal wetland, swam and snorkeled in the Golfo Dulce, and walked Saladero-maintained trails in the Piedras...

Arriving at Saladero in mid-January was like coming home, even though it was only our second trip. Harvey and Susan make us feel special, even though you eventually realize that all guests experience the same warmth. As before, we hiked the trails, got sun-burned in the kayaks, caught a few fish, took dozens of photographs and just enjoyed the ambience.... More

This was my first true adventure outside of the states. I picked this place due to its remote location, price and use of kayaks. I had a feeling that it would be a great experience before I even arrived but after the first night and meeting Susan and Harvey I felt at home. With meals served 3 times a day,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Winter holidays with our two teenage boys and we had an amazing time. This is a unique lodge because of its location and the hosts. At the edge of an untouched national park that is only accessible via boat - you are really in the wilderness. We had delicious home cooked meals... More
