We stayed at Saladro Lodge for three nights as part of a seven-day package around Corcovado National Park. Saladero Lodge is only accessible by boat and is in a fairly remote but fantastic location on the east coast of Golfo Dulce. We were picked up in Puerto Jimenez and arrived in the beautiful setting of Saladero Lodge. On the way,... More

BEAUTIFUL place. Heaven on Earth. Lovely couple owns and runs the eco lodge. Excellent food. Beach/gulf is very clean and clear water. Dolphins too!! They also provide free kayaks and paddle boards to use. Very neat trails surround the property for hiking and photography - excellent site for wildlife.

Saladero Eco Lodge was the first of 3 lodges Harvey organized for us to visit. He and Susan have done a wonderful job in operating and maintaining this little piece of heaven. On our orientation tour Susan and Maya-dog showed us where the jungle trails were, the edible native plants grown for the kitchen, flower identification and the purpose of... More

We just returned from a 2 week stay in Costa Rica. Saladero Eco Lodge was first on the trip and a wonderful introduction to the area. We stayed in the Beach House which was roomy and comfortable. I was worried about the heat and humidity but was pleasantly surprised by the cool breeze blowing about 80% of the time. This... More

Gorgeous beach front; informative, friendly, down to earth owners and staff. Comfortable cabin and delicious food. Would of liked to stay longer. We woke up to the sound of Howler monkeys and you really hear the rainforest wake at night. Went kayaking with dolphins about 20 feet away, saw lots of wildlife, and plants. Beautiful!!!

What a lovely breath of fresh air in how to experience Costa rica. Opposed to the crowded city tourist atmosphere you find places like quepos, saladero ecolodge provides a personal touch, with an out in the wilderness feel. They produce theyre electricity with solar, and have solar lanterns for your room. Next the food, oh my the food, made from... More

A brilliant "hide-away" for those who like to enjoy Costa Rica nature in a relaxed family environment off the beaten track - there are no roads there! You get there by boat or kayaks as we did. You can borrow fishing gear, simple kayaks and even rubber boots for a nice walk in the jungle. We appreciated chatting with other... More

Your visit starts the moment Harvey picks you up from the jetty in Golfito. The 3/4 hour trip to the lodge runs past steep, forest covered hillsides reaching down to the shore with occasional less steep bays containing a few huts or another lodge hiding there. Harvey chatted to us while we traveled telling us all about the area and... More

We spent 4 nights at Saladero Eco Lodge and were so sorry to leave, mainly due to the camaraderie we felt with Harvey and Susan. From start to finish we felt cared for, from the time capable Harvey picked us up to travel by boat to the lodge to the time we left. The meals were some of my favorite... More

Our stay at Saladero lodge with Susan and Harvey was our best experience in our 3 weeks trip to Costa Rica! The trip started with a 45 min boat ride from Golfito to access the lodge, during which we were lucky to see Dolphins playing around on the way. The place has something magical about it. It feels like a... More
