I stayed here for 4 days with my partner and daughter and we all wished that we had booked to stay longer. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the centre where most of the restaurants are, but that makes it really tranquil and great for wildlife spotting. If you walk past the last cabin it feels as... More

This was probably the best place we stayed in over 2 months of travelling in Costa Rica, Nicaragua , Honduras and Guatemala. These are true "cabinas", comfortable and well spaced out in a beautiful "jungle" woodland setting, yet close to the Playa Negra beach and only a short cycle ride from the centre of Cahuita and the National Park.

This was a find. The little cabin at Iguana in Cahuita was cheap, clean (enough) and quite beautiful. There was a bit of noise from a gathering at the owners house, but it ended by 10pm or so, and was not an issue. As in all the cabinas we stayed at in CR, there are no windows, just wood blinds,...

We had never been to the Atlantic Coast and fell in love when we visited Cahuita and Cabinas Iguana this January. It is a perfect combination of rustic, safe, clean and in a great, off-the-beaten path location! We brought our three teen to young adult sons. They loved it, too!

Just coming back from it ( November, low season), paid a really good fare. Access to the pool, five minutes from the beach. Sophia offered my friends and I a coconut and a few bananas as a welcome treat.. Nothing to say except " amazing place & service"..

Cabinas Iguana are situated a 15 minutes walk away from Cahuitas "center" in a very quiet (except for some howler monkeys...) neighbourhood. The cabinas and the centrally placed pool look as if they were built into the jungle. From the doorstep of your cabina you can see (if you keep your eyes open and are a bit lucky) poison-dart frogs,... More

Agoutis and turquoise dart frogs in the garden. A very clean and nice pool. Lovely staff. Shared bathroom are worth the value. Also a bit calmer than staying in town but just a 15 min walk in to the restaurants. A great place to stay while in cauhita!

Very nice and clean cabinas surrounded by palmtrees. The pool is great. We saw there a lot of animals, monkeys crossing the garden, really great. It is just a few minutes from the nice beach. Restaurants and Bars are nearby. The owner is very helpful and friendly. We surly will come back.

We really enjoyed our one night at Cabinas Iguana. Most of the budget guest houses we stay at have concrete walls, so it was a real pleasure staying somewhere with fragrant dark wood paneling, built in shelves, and a mosquito net. Our shared bathroom was reasonably clean, as was the shower. There is a BEAUTIFUL clean pool and an extensive... More

We did our yearly family trip and enjoyed this place. It was hard to find from the bus station since we did not know where we were going, lol. The owner was informed and came to our rescue! I went with my wife, 4 kids ages 15, 10, 9, 1 and my mom. We loved the cabina that we stayed... More
