The best advice I can offer regarding Saladero Lodge is to stop reading this review and book a stay there as soon as possible. Honestly, as the many other reviews here attest, it’s a wonderful property and Harvey and Susan are the perfect hosts. Their dedication to their environment and their joy in sharing their knowledge about the local area are always evident. With no road access and surrounded by primary rain forest, Saladero Lodge is particularly well suited to those looking to get away from everything and completely relax while enjoying the amazing wildlife found in this part of Costa Rica. Meals are delicious and prepared from very local ingredients (including many ingredients from right on the property). Our three-day stay in the Beach House last week was wonderful – it is very comfortable and has amazing views of the stunning sunsets over the Gulfo Dulce. Harvey’s kayak tour of the mangroves in the nearby Rio Esquinas was a highlight – don’t miss it! We will definitely be returning.
