Our family of three stayed here in mid-July 2014. We stayed in the Tree House which was nestled in the trees about 90 stairs up from the main lodge. The hosts are a very kind, generous couple who worked hard to make sure we were comfortable and happy. The jungle trails on the property are through primary rain forest and are very well maintained. We took an excursion into the mangrove swamp, which was beautiful and peaceful. During our stay we saw spider monkeys, howler monkeys, scarlet macaws, parakeets, osprey, herons, pelicans, dolphins, cherry tanagers and beautiful flowers and butterflies. We took a horseback riding excursion through a property owned by a nice man who moved from the US to Costa Rica many years ago. It was a beautiful, peaceful ride through jungle trails on his property and is highly recommended. We also went kayaking and snorkeling, which you can do for free using their equipment to your heart's content. While snorkeling we saw several colorful fish and skates. The water is warm and inviting in the Golfo Dulce. The food at the lodge was superb. There were fresh juices made with fruits grown on the property that I have never seen or tasted before in my life. We awoke one morning to hear a howler monkey howling in a tree about 20 feet from our window. It is very nice to know that places like this still exist and Harvey and Susan are obviously very conscientious stewards of the natural treasure surrounding them. Our family highly recommends Saladero Eco Lodge.
