Welcome to Paradise

Welcome to Paradise

Welcome to Paradise  Boat access only and just a few cabins insure your Costa Rican nature experience is one that only a few people will share in this, the most natural, pristine and undeveloped part of Costa Rica.

1/2 mile of calm beachfront on the calm Golfo Dulce, 450 acres of pristine primary rainforest, 30 acres of tropical gardens and lots of adventure activities make this a unique destination without the crowds or lines.  The 30-40 minute boat transfer is one of the best parts of coming to Saladero. Craggy cliffs with huge primary rainforest trees and vegetation hanging out over the beach, leaping rays, coral reefs with tropical fish you can almost touch and native homes under coconut palms at secluded beaches.

All cabin rates include boat transfer from Pto Jimenez or Golfito to Saladero and return, use of kayaks, snorkeling and fishing equipment.  (3 day minimum stay).
