My 10 year old daughter and 13 year old son and I (mother) stayed 4 nights there. The scenery, hospitality, and food were divine. We were serenaded by howler monkeys, catered to by loving staff, and had every need taken care of. The food and drinks were often created with ingredients grown there. The tour of the mangroves and kayaking... More

Highly Recommended. We spent 6 nights at Saladero. Susan, Harvey and the staff are helpful and friendly, the food is excellent, and the grounds and surrounding rainforest are beautiful. It’s a great place to either relax or have fun. The kayaking and fishing was good (so was the snorkeling) and the mangrove tour is a must. Our only complaint was... More

Fantastic place with lovable hosts. The lodge is enbeded in a beautiful landscape at the Golfo Dulce. The free use of kayaks and snorkeling gear is a big plus. Also the well maintained jungle trails on the grounds of the lodge. There are several tours available, the tours we joined are highly recommended. The delicious food consists of many own... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at Saladero, in the wonderful Tree House. We were so impressed with the beauty of this resort, the attentiveness and friendliness of Susan and Harvey, our hosts. Every morning we had fresh pineapple and bananas from Susan's gardens included in our wonderful breakfasts. Lunch and dinner were also delicious. The grounds are beautiful... More

My husband and I (seniors) had a perfect 4 days with Harvey and Susan at Saladero. We felt like house guests enjoying their wonderful paradise with them. The beauty, remoteness and tranquility of Saladero, combined with the warmth and interest in the environment of our hosts, made it a relaxing and fun visit. The only downside was that it was... More

It is a present and it was definitly my highlight on my 7 week-trip through Costa Rica, when I got to Saladero Lodge. Enjoying an nature reserve and being introduced to plants by wonderful people who took care of me in a very special way is something I didn´t experience so far. Susan and Harvey shared not only their home... More

We had a wonderful camping experience at Saladero last week! We live in very southern Costa Rica, so we boated (with a motor on our ocean kayak) up Golfo Dulce four hours to Saladero Eco Lodge. We didn't stay in the cabinas but I have heard they're very nice, including the tree house. We didn't bring a tent as we... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor recommendations and Harvey and Susan's email communications we chose Saladero Lodge as one of two properties we visited on our 3 week first trip to Costa Rica. Immediately we felt like family without responsibility. Our hosts were enough reason, alone, to return. The property, access to all things outdoors, fantastic fresh meals and the education we received... More

Saladero Lodge is a place that you will not be wakened by the noise of motorcycles, cars and trucks because there are no roads. This was our 6th trip to the Saladero Lodge because it has everything that we could want in a vacation. Harvey and Susan will pick you up by boat and take you on an amazing coastal... More

As a 29 year old guy, I never thought I would enjoy being disconnected from laptops, phones, and TV's. Well, after staying 4 days and 3 nights at Saladero I found out how great it was especially with such gracious hosts as Harvey and Susan. We stayed in the treehouse, which was fantastic, as long as you can handle 80+... More
