My husband and I spent 3 days in the tree house at Saladero: birdwatching with the guide, Adela, walking the trails, and kayaking about 15 minutes to a beach where we snorkeled and had terrific views of a turtle. You arrive by boat ride from Golfito or Puerto Jimenez and are

This was my husband and my fourth visit to Saladero in 5 years and we have "booked" for Feb/March in 2020. We are seniors with a passion for birdwatching and learning more about the rainforest ecosystem. Saladero is a very special and wonderful place on the Golfo Dulce

Hello, how hot is it there by the last 2wks of March? Thx!
We were there in early February and it was warm in the daytime but we had unusual rain in the afternoons and it cooled down at night. We haven’t been in March so I’m not sure. But it sure was sweet to sit on that veranda most of the afternoon.

Hello the beach house is fine and no noise in the night. We slept in the little house just behind the beach house and were happy with that aswell.

We have some "fish and dive" kayaks with a wide beam that are very stable. Or sometimes photographers go in a double kayak with a partner that does all the paddling.

The rains start coming in May and so many of the tour companies start to shut down..its the beginning of low season... but its beautiful ..its called the green season! it is often sunny in the morning to afternoon and then some showers (some heavier then others!) then it clears away and the sun shines again. Its not a cold rain, unless your in the Mountains, and then its quite a bit cooler because of the rains the rivers are running off into the ocean, the visibility is much less snorkeling in may. hope this helps

Hi. The boat transportation from Pto Jimenez takes about 1/2 hour. We have several cabins available during that time. Take a look at our website for information on the cabins. Let us know when you would be coming, the number of nights and the number of persons. We will be happy to provide a price. Thank you, Harvey
