The Saladero Eco Lodge had my favorite setting in Costa Rica with its park like grounds, animal filled ancient forests behind, and a view looking across the gulf. With boat in access only , the tranquility is perfect and was the only place I went for days without hearing the sounds of noisy motorcycles or weedwhackers that you get in... More

Harvey and Susan were wonderful hosts. The food was healthy and great each day. The activities available on-site or within a few minutes were fun and educational (hiking in primary and secondary rainforest, kayaking in mangroves, snorkeling, bird watching, etc.). This is an excellent location if you want to "get of the grid" for a few days and get back... More

My partner and I recently stayed at the Saladero Eco Lodge. Overall, we mostly enjoyed our stay. There were many perks and a few, albeit important things we felt could have been better. I'll list them here: Pros: 1. Absolutely delicious meals. Harvey, Susan and their kitchen help made incredible food for each meal. This was probably our favorite part... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review for us. We really appreciate any constructive criticism and look forward to improving our customer experience. We are remote and there are no other restaurants close by. We serve family style usually with additional food for anyone with an bigger appetite. In the past customers complained about having...

As a young couple we always want to escape the busy and crowded places and enjoy nature as such... Considering the above Saladero Eco Lodge is a perfect match! It is certainly a must stay when going to Costa Rica! Having booked a 7 days / 6 nights package organised by three eco lodges around the Osa Peninsula area (Saladero... More

I don't even know where to start. My husband and I came to Saladero for a week long honeymoon. I did a lot of research on the lodge months in advance to coming, and it was still better than I could have ever anticipated. We chose the lodge because we wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of... More

My husband and I stayed at Saladero Eco Lodge in April after planning what was for us--the trip of a lifetime. Our only hope now, is that we get to take this trip more than once in a lifetime. The eco lodge is everything we were looking for and so much more--beauty, remoteness, and a chance to connect and learn... More

What a fantastic place, what wonderful people. Coming back for a second stint at Saladero, this time to experience the rainy season and bring our families along for the ride. Just seeing Harvey and Susan again is well worth the price of admission, but with the additions of the Glamping cabins, paddle boards, revised trail network, and the wonderful on-site... More

We spent 3 days at the Saladero Eco Lodge in April. What an amazing place! We loved exploring the trails on the property, kayaking, snorkeling, and just relaxing. The cabins were very nice, clean and comfortable. What really makes this place really special, though, are Harvey and Susan. They immediately make you feel like longtime friends and are both so...
