We just returned from 6 days at Saladero and loved every minute. We hated to have to leave! Everything about the lodge met exactly what we were looking for in a tropical vacation - birds, flowers, rain forest, and sea kayaking.
Susan and Harvey were excellent hosts and the food was exceptional - delicious, healthy, and Susan always kept an eye towards producing meals that as environmentally healthy as possible. The family style service allowed us to get close to our fellow travelers which was an added bonus.
We stayed in the Treehouse, which was a bit of a climb as advertised, but it was up in the forest canopy and gave great views of the birds and wildlife. The seclusion gave us the feeling of being off on our own which was perfect for this trip that included Valentine's day.
My wife and I loved Saladero and all the people we met and hope to return someday soon.
