Juxtaposed between the verdant Piedras Blancas National Park and the pristine Golfo Dulce waters, Saladero Lodge is a 480 acre accessible by boat only farm, which is touted to be one of the best rainforest specialty lodges in Costa Rica. Guests here can savor a wide range of incredible natural experiences from watching the crimson skies at sundown to hearing the background sounds of singing tree frogs. The less intrepid can enjoy Golfo Dulce Peninsula’s wildlife treasures from Saldero’s immaculately manicured gardens (housing edible plant varieties such as banana, papaya, pineapple, jackfruit, mango, jackfruit, citrus, avocado and more), while the more adventurous guests can venture into the adjoining national park on a self-guided trail.
