Saladero Ecolodge is located on the Golfo Dulce, right accross the Osa Peninsula, South-Pacific of Costa Rica, and on the edge of the most off the beaten track national park of the country (Piedras Blancas National Park). This secret treasure place isn’t linked to any road and accessible only by boat, which contributes greatly to its magic. It’s indeed by going across the Gulf on board of Harvey & Susan’s boat from Puerto Jimenez or Golfito’s dock that any Saladero Ecolodge experience starts.
Susan is originally from the UK, and Harvey from the USA. But both of them are first of all nature-lovers experienced globetrotters.
Harvey started the project 8 years ago, and Susan joined him mid-way. They developed a lovely sustainable nest on the beachfront of a 180 hectares (465 acres) property, composed at 97% of protected primary rain forest and wild mangrove (one part of it is actually considered to be part of the Piedras Blancas National Park).
Rates are all inclusive, which means including also a wide variety of delicious local organic homemade meals. Kayaks are at free disposal: go for a sunrise / sunset tour on the gulf, this is such a relaxing beautiful experience.
Susan and Harvey live onsite all year along. Travelers are invited to be their guests sharing their sustainable way of living for a few days. Their meta is “Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend” which sums up quite well their warm welcome, kindness and generosity.
