This is a respite from a busy life. The staff, casitas, food, property and informal atmosphere is wonderful! You can be active or sloth-like. There is wifi for those who can't disconnect and peace for those who want to. Make no mistake in planning - this is the JUNGLE in all it's glory! Loren and Toby (the owners) are available,... More

Totally enjoyed the location, facilities, staff, yoga, scarlet macaws, and monkeys. A very relaxation time on my travels through the Osa Peninsula. Almost forgot, wonderful menu choices. Great beach for long walks.

My husband and I stayed at the Iguana Lodge for several days earlier this month. The location was perfect. Right on the beach, super close to Puerto Jimenez, close to Matapalo and Carate (and those beaches!) The staff was wonderful, accommodating, helpful, and gracious - and the owners (who joined us for dinner each night) were such a pleasure. The... More

This was my second visit to Iguana Lodge. Iguana was my top pick of the places I stayed in Costa Rica in 2014, and, on return, it was also my top pick. Everything I look for in Costa Rica is available at Iguana Lodge..hiking, the beach, excellent food and service, and wonderful amenities like yoga classes and first rate massage.

We spent 4 nights and 5 days at Iguana Lodge. The Tuesday night BBQ on the beach was awesome! Food was delicious! The Friday night Pasta Party/Salsa Dancing was fun!! Don't miss out! The owners are friendly and greet everyone with a smile. The girls at the front desk are very helpful and very friendly. The breakfast every morning was... More

Bodysurfing with southern rays was definitely amazing! The saline pool and hot tub are open all night! The yoga deck is like nothing I've ever seen before and the food is better than you can imagine!!

Came for a yoga retreat, but it ended up being so much more! Amazing location, fauna, flora, and ambience. Combine this with quiet places for relaxation and meditation, and, for me, it was pure bliss. The food was top notch, healthy, and so nourishing! Can't wait to get back!!

The Iguana Lodge did not disappoint. We were looking for a laid-back, less touristy area of Costa Rica, which is why we headed to the Osa. If you're going there, you should definitely stay at the Iguana Lodge! The grounds are beautiful and really make you feel like you're in the middle of the jungle, but you can also hear... More

This place has some strong positives and strong negatives. First, the positives-beautiful site. Sidnar, the naturalist, was the highlight of our stay here. He is so knowledgeable of the area and wildlife. We did a bird watching tour and a trip to Matapolo with him which were tremendous. The pool and yoga area are great and you can stay cool... More

My husband, teenage son and I stayed for 2 nights the week before Christmas. We would have liked to stay longer but there was no more availability for our dates as we were a bit late making our holiday plans. We booked our trip directly with Maxine who handles the reservations for Iguana Lodge. Maxine was a delight to work... More

Thank you so much for your review! I think it is the longest one we have ever had. I love your advice about how to deal with the heat and bugs. It is right on. I am sure anyone who reads it will find it very informative. Thank goodness we resolved the room issue. 99% of the time this is... More
