I highly recommend the iguana lodge to anyone who is searching for true paradise. The rooms are perfect, the pool and jacuzzi feel amazing and the scenery is breath taking. You will see iguanas, scarlet macaws, and monkeys. The rainforest borders a beach that you basically have all to yourself. I would love to go back

The lodge is beautifully run. The food is excellent and the proprietors are hands on and extraordinarily attentive. Its remoteness adds to the charm. With no telephones or television sets to distract you from the natural beauty of the place, you are left with the sounds and sights of the Costa Rica rainforest.

I have been fortunate enough to travel a fair amount so have refined my travel palette if you will. The Iguana Lodge was the perfect balance for me. Casual to pass the time slowly or be as active as you want, but with welcome comforts like delicious food. It attracts some great like-minded people, Lauren, Toby, and their dogs Zisi... More

Incredible experience. Lauren, Tobey and the Iguana Lodge team genuinely want you to have a wonderful time, and that is made evident from the email correspondence following your reservation confirmation through to the follow up after you leave. The food (breakfast and dinner), the accommodations, the service, the location and the activities (including the spa) were all exceptional - be... More

I had no idea that I would be staying in such a wonderful place out in the middle of nowhere! It is absolutely one of the coolest places I've stayed and the food was perfect! Also the owners were lovely 😊

From soup to nuts, this Iguana Lodge was terrific! We stayed in the beach house - just great. Food was superb as was the dining ambiance. Staff all extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. The lodge was so peaceful with everything we could ask for - beach right there, wonderful pool, tons of birds and animals. Monkeys, toucans, macaws, sloths and... More

Let me start by saying that all the great reviews you are reading about Iguana Lodge are true. And if you read something not so great, it is simply because the traveler did not do their research before staying here and needed a more luxury hotel. I've stayed at Iguana Lodge 3 times now, for a week each time, and... More

My decision to visit Costa Rica and to stay at Iguana Lodge were last minute. I was able to take a vacation from work but I didn't want to deal with visas or vaccinations. I don't remember how exactly I found the lodge, probably through someone's travel blog, but I knew after visiting the lodge's website that I had to... More

I almost booked a place in town in Puerto Jimenez and am SO GLAD we chose to go to this place instead, which was paradise, just a short 15 minutes away. This place was just lovely. Beautiful grounds, a deserted beautiful beach, and a great pool. Lauren and Toby were so nice. We were upgraded to a Casita without asking... More
