Saladero's location is just about as perfect as anyone could possibly conceive--a tropical bay surrounded down to the water on either side by primary and secondary rain forest. An opening (previously this was a pineapple and other plantation) for the lodge facilities allows and encourages the local wildlife to walk in or hang around on the fringes. Truly magnificent spot!...

When planning a first time trip to Costa Rica for my son and I, I chose Saladero Eco Lodge for the first stop of our adventure. This turned out to be the best decision of the entire trip! From the moment Harvey met us at the airport in Puerto Jimenez, we knew we were in for something magical. The boat...

Saladero Eco Lodge was our second stay for this trip to Costa Rica, and we stayed 6 nights. We were greeted by Susan immediately upon landing at the beach, and given refreshing local fruit juice and lemongrass tea. She did a brief tour of the common area and then showed us to our snug cabin, with promises of a grounds...

Our hosts were very personable and accommodating to making our stay the most comfortable. The lagoon was where we spent most our time kayaking, snorkeling, stand-up-paddle boarding, swimming with all the gear available and easy to use. Susan always had plenty of great home cooked meals for us eat leisurely. Very relaxing yet full of sporting activity and interesting wildlife...

If you are looking for air conditioning and Jacuzzis, this is not your place. On the other hand, if you want to experience natural Costa Rica, I can't imagine there is any better place to do it. (We stayed in 4 lodges/resorts in Costa Rica - all were good, but this was, by far, the most amazing experience we had.)...

This was our first taste of "eco" lodging and we were delighted with Saladero. Susan and Harvey made us feel really welcome and more like friends of the family than guests. The lodge has stunning views from the verandah and the grounds and activities available made the stay an unforgettable experience. We were lodged in the Bach house which was...

My wife and I have made 8 trips to Costa Rica in 7 years and this was by far the best place we've been. Saladero Ecolodge is not just "eco" in name, but totally "eco" in practice as well. First class service from everyone, especially the owners - who also happen to cook the best meals we've had in Costa...

We stayed here for 11 fantastic nights. Harvey and Susan treat every guest with a kindness usually reserved for family. To begin, highly recommend booking this place WITH Saladero (like on their website), because they can offer invaluable information about getting to Saladero and about their accommodations that Booking.com and other tertiary sites can't offer. This is truly a special...

We stayed at Saladero at the beginning of the rainy season in July. If you're worried about the weather during this time of year - don't be! We would recommend everyone to travel during the rainy period - less crowds and it cools down nicely after a tropical shower. Staying at Saladero was like relaxing in paradise. Harvey and Susan...

Susan and Harvey are really dedicated to sustainability and hospitality. They open their hearth and heart to people visiting, giving us a chance to connect to nature, and to what really matters in life. Joy, friendships, beauty and purpose. An Eco-lodge with superb food, mostly grown locally.
