El Salto was one of my favorite places on my trip to CR. The view alone was something magical. Its a great place if you're just arriving from San Jose but not wanting to stay there - being a short 1 hour or so drive south and feeling like you are completely out of the city into some dreamy verdant jungle. Or if you are traveling from one coast to the other its a great middle way point, like we did. The view from the room was beautiful and we had our own porch and bathroom and awesome mural of a david bowie cat : ) Good hikes, and other activities to do here. Also there is the ruins of the oldest colonial made church at the base of the valley. Stay here, and you will have a great time. Do it! 


For starters "What an amazing view". If you were looking for a place to live then you probably would have picked this. The waterfall it music to your ears. It is a great place to stop both for the local beauty and the convenience. Consider yourselves lucky if you stay here. Enjoy.


Great experience at El Salto Eco Lodge! The host and his family were very friendly and hospitable. The lodge is very secluded and the pictures do not do justice for the incredible view you have of the waterfall from the rooms. Excellent breakfast and dinner each night. Also has a projector with DVDs and a karaoke machine in the common area if you decide to have a relaxing night in.

Cet endroit est un vrai petit coin de paradis! La vue est magnifique et spectaculaire : entouré de montagnes, nous nous sentions seuls au monde. Manuel, l'hôte, est vraiment adorable. Il fait tout pour que nous nous sentions comme chez nous. C'est aussi un très bon cuisinier et il vous donnera tous les conseils dont vous avez besoin. Je vous conseille de ne pas arriver trop tard pour pouvoir profiter de la petite piscine avec vue sur une cascade, et vous reposer sur les nombreux hamacs ! Je recommande vivement cet endroit !

My friends and I had a great time at El Salto! Beautiful views from the rooms! Manuel took us on a fun day hike down to the waterfall and we had a tasty lunch in the small town at the bottom of the valley. The El Salto is a nice stop off on your way to the Caribbean coast. Also good - dinner is available as an option, home brewed beers are a treat, and there's hot water.
