I stayed at Iguana in the beginning of March while on a yoga retreat with Upper West Side Yoga. I can honestly say between my incredible yoga instructors and the people, amenities, and atmosphere at Iguana, I had one of the most spiritually fulfilling experiences of my life. For me, it was the small things: a good cup of coffee... More

We spent 3 nights here in a corner club room with an ocean view. Would recommend this room for cross ventilation with the breeze as it has 2 windows and being on the end has less people walking past. The fan did a good job with the intense heat, although only one of the two fans was working. The room... More

HI, I wish you could have given us a higher rating too! Re Yoga: Unfortunately, my mother-in-law broke her knee and we needed to go take care of her back in the USA. We usually have two free yoga teachers here - but for four days, we didn't, and I apologize. We did have another yoga teacher available to teach... More

If you need air conditioning on top of ocean breeze, go elsewhere, but for us, the Iguana was absolutely perfect. Can't beat the group meals in the great room over the main lodge, and our casita was a wonderful place for afternoon naps. And what more can you say about the private sandy beach than "Heaven!" Pura vida!

My husband and I stayed here after a 3-day trek into Corcovado. We were looking for some rest, relaxation, beach time, and good food following the trek. This is exactly what we found, and more, at Iguana Lodge!! The owners and staff are wonderful people, who really go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your stay.... More

It's a jungle out there. And it's a jungle in here too. So I decided in the middle of our first night at Iguana Lodge. The howler monkeys and cicadas were whispers compared to the noise in my head --- for the first time since forever ago, I had no "to do" list. And that left me with nothing on... More

My family and I recently visited Iguana Lodge based on a recommendation. My wife and I have been to Costa Rica three times in the past, and our stay at Iguana Lodge was by far our best experience. It all starts with the Osa Peninsula and the Golfo Dulce on which Iguana Lodge is located. This tropical fjord embodies the... More

Over the course of 17 trips to Costa Rica, and many other trips to about a dozen other countries in the world, the Iguana lodge soundly finishes as my single most favorite place that I have ever stayed! This is not to say that I haven’t come across other gems in the world that could compete in some given way;... More

Highly recommended for a couples retreat. While a lot of Yogis were there, other couples frequent this jungle paradise. The hosts, Toby and Lauren (as well as Spike the wonderdog) were so gracious, we felt like family. 300 yards or so from a lovely beach, you are under Macaws mating, Howler monkeys howling and other jungle creatures. And yes there... More

Beatiful Hotel, right on the beach which is immaculate. When you are in the sea you can't see one single human made construction. Pool area is just a dream come true, with huge trees around it where groups of monkeys wander through while you are sitting there and the yoga platforms are so beautiful. Staff is very friendly and the... More

What a beautiful location. I loved the grounds- lush and well tended to, but not overly manicured. The ocean is wonderfully warm and inviting. The pristine beach has a gentle decline that invites swimming and frolicking. Waking up at 5 AM and walking the beach as the sun rose was one of my favorite activities. The food is great. Breakfast... More
