Before arriving I was a little skeptical that Saladero could live up to the reviews. It did! As mentioned in many reviews, Susan and Harvey are amazing hosts, who really make you feel that you are visiting old friends. Our 3 days were spent kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, fishing, swimming and just relaxing. We were staying in the Tree House... More

My brother and I had the most fantastic 6 days at Saladero Eco Lodge. The couple - Harvey and Susan - that runs the place, are very (like in VERY) nice and caring people. When you are in a place, so remote from everything as you are at Saladero Eco Lodge, it plays a huge role. But no worries there... More

We stayed here for three nights as part of a package with Danta Corcovado Lodge, arranged through the lodges themselves and what a wonderful place to end our trip to Costa Rica. From the moment Harvey met us on the beach with his boat and took us on a lovely ride across the glass smooth Golfo Dulce to Saladero where... More

Our days at Saladero had a relaxed rhythm punctuated by Susan's delicious meals. We easily fell into the habit of going to sleep at dark and waking with the sunrise. There is good snorkeling, and you can see all kinds of fish and sea turtles right from your kayak or paddle board. The Beach House is spacious, comfortable with ocean... More

We liked every minute of our stay with two very warm and highly knowledgeable hosts. This included fishing for dinner on the way to the lodge. The two women local staff and Susan and Harvey never failed to do a great job in the kitchen. The two local men of the staff made a difference, too. The outdoor shower is... More

Susan and Harvey are very warm and welcoming hosts. The meals are delicious. I loved that Saladero is entirely solar-powered and that much of the food is grown on the Lodge grounds. Also appreciated very much the collaboration by Susan and Harvey with environmental scientists and Costa Rica Parks officials. Lovely rain forest walks available just off the property, lots... More

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
