Saladero was fantastic in every way, we loved it. From the moment we got onto Harvey's boat for the ride up the coast to Saladero the wow factor kicked in. The landscape is gorgeous & the smell of the forest from the boat just gets you relaxed before you even get there. We stayed in the tree house which was brilliant fun & saw toucans & hummingbirds outside every morning ( bring headtorches ). The Beach house looks really nice & we are already planning to come back ASAP to stay there with all the family. Harvey looks after you in such a nice way , you instantly feel welcome & completely at home & because of his warm nature all the staff are really friendly too, a really happy atmosphere pervades the whole place. The food is excellent & all so fresh ( Don't miss out on the banana pancakes for breakfast ! ) Harvey taught our daughter to fish & we ate our catch for supper ! now she is mad keen & I will have to buy rods & tackle to use at home. Don't miss out on the trips, they are really good fun & very interesting, we did something different every day for 8 days but still found time to chill out in the hammocks under the trees in the afternoon . Don't worry about bugs, just put some repellent below the knee for the invisible ones, there were no mossies at all when we were there.
If you have read this review & I reccomend you book right now, because the moment I have earned enough money to return I am going to beat you to it !!!
If you have to stopover in san Jose try www. Hotel Brilla Sol.com its Tico & very friendly,clean plus free pick up & drop off at airport. If you want a trip out of san Jose or a lift to Pavas for Nature for Nature Air flights I reccomend [--] [--] he speaks good english & will look after you really well.
