I spent 5 days at Saladero Lodge in February as part of a Costa Rica trip and had an amazing time. I was travelling by myself but from the time, Harvey and Susan picked me up by boat in Puerto Jimenez, I felt great. The location of the lodge is excellent - very remote but with plenty to do. Initially, I came to relax and not do much but ended up being busy kayaking, snorkling, fishing and exploring the rain forest. I stayed in the tree-house and it was amazing to fall asleep to - and wake up to - the sound of the rain forest. But the Beach-House and Mariposa also have lots of charm. Even if I was the only guest at the lodge, no short-cuts were taken with my meals. They were prepared by Paulina, Susan and Harvey in great cooperation and all were delicious and consisted mostly of local grown fruits/vegtables or fish from the sea. During my stay, I also took the river-tour which is highly recommendable. Kayaking down the river between the mangroves one early morning, is something I will never forget. One piece of advice is to stay a minimum of 4-5 days - so much to see and do ! Would definitely love to go back!
