I recently spent an amazing 6 evenings at the Saladero Eco Lodge. I can't say enough about this wonderful place. I agree with most of the reviewers of this lodge - "You come as guests and leave as friends". Susan & Harvey are incredible host/hostesses. One of the best memories that I will keep with me regarding this lodge is...

We stayed at Saladero Ecolodge in December with our 7 year old son and had a wonderful time. Susan and Harvey are great hosts. For us it was like arriving in a different world living a new rhythm, learning lots about nature, eating great food (not only the pizza at Saladero is fabulous - Susan is an amazing cook) and...

We were really looking forward to Saladero as one of the highlights of our 2 week trip to Costa Rica but it surpassed our expectations. Saladero had arranged for us to leave our car at a hotel in Golfito and we were collected from there by Ian and David. We had an exhilarating 45 minute speedboat ride up the Golfe...

Saladero was a great first stop on our first visit to Costa Rica. Harvey met us at the tiny Puerto Jimenez airport and took us by boat across the Golfo Dulce to Saladero. We spent our days kayaking, snorkeling, hiking on rain forest trails, relaxing, and learning about the fish, plants, birds and animals in this region, and visiting with...

Saladero picked us up in a boat in Puerto Jimenez and we traveled across the golf to the resort tucked into the jungle. There are only a handful of homes in the vicinity and the only way to get in or out is by boat. We happened to be in Costa Rica during some freak weather in which it rained...

We spent 4 nights in the Bungalow and loved every minute, from the boat ride across the gulf from Puerto Jimenez (the flight down from San Jose is gorgeous) to the final breakfast of Harvey's pancakes. We particularly enjoyed the delicious and inventive cooking, the house party atmosphere - meals eaten round Harvey's beautiful big table - the fascinating conversation...

This is a great place to stay whether you are looking for a place just to get away and relax or you are looking for some adventure. If you want an active agenda, you have some choices. There is kayaking in tandems or singles along the coast of the Gulf where the water is relatively quiet to either a great...

My wife and I just returned from the Osa Peninsula on a package we arranged with Harvey and Susan. This was our first time traveling with a pre-paid package, and could not have hoped for a better experience. All of the arrangements and tours worked like clockwork from the moment we arrived in Puerto Jimenez. We stayed at three lodges,...

Accessible only by boat, Saladero is owned by Susan and Harvey, the most warm and knowledgeable couple. Stayed in the Beach House, a beautiful large space with two bathrooms overlooking the Golfo Dulce. The gulf can be explored with the kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling gear available for guests. Private coves with coral reefs are great destinations. Don't miss the...

Our family, including or two sons, 22 and 26, stayed with Harvey and Susan at Saladero Ecolodge in January of this year (2017) as a part of an adventure tour with Tropical Sea Kayaking. There are several lodging options, cabins and tents, and we stayed in the "Glamping Tent Cabins." They were the perfect accommodation for us 'rugged types', very...
