In December 2013 we stayed with Susan and Harvey at their charming Saladero Eco-lodge, and enjoyed every moment of it. The location is idyllic with the calm waters of Costa Rica’s Golfo Dulce on one side and the lush rainforests of the Piedras Blancas National Park on the other. Wildlife abounds on their unspoiled beautiful property: we were greeted by howler monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, bats, and dolphins practically every day . In addition to the wildlife we enjoyed the company of the two resident dogs Maya and Lulu, the rescue kitten Patches, and the parrot Ringo that decided to adopt Susan and Harvey during our stay. The beach house that we stayed in was very comfortable with magnificent views. Susan and Harvey are wonderful hosts, and we’ve seldom had better vegetarian food! They’re ably assisted by Paolina, Giselle and Frank to make the stay memorable. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling, and especially kayaking in the Rio Esquinas estuary.
