Iguana Lodge is one of the finest and most fun places you can emerge yourself on going. The owners Lauren and Tobey are there for you like your own mom and dad. The staff is super friendly and will attend to anything you need while you're there. The beach right in front of the hotel is truly stunning and the... More

Spent three days there. Excellent food. Stayed at one of the casitas--listened to the surf and cicadas at night. Lovely uncrowded beach. Lots of birds, including boisterous macaws. Took a tour with the Lodge naturalist and got photos of lots of birds. Highly recommended.

Lauren and Toby are so friendly and welcoming. The staff are all amazing. They are friendly and so helpful. I felt like... More

We were there for about a week and it was beautiful, peaceful, welcoming and one of the best vacations ever. Kayak fishing - a blast- the cook fixed the fish for us for lunch - a special treat. It is very private and one of the few places with no metal bars on anything - the pool area and yoga... More

We travelled to Iguana Lodge with our two school-aged children on the advice of a friend who has been 3 times. It was the perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. We experienced the best of both by staying in the club rooms and the beach house and both were very comfortable, although its hard to beat the outdoor shower in... More

We stayed for 6 nights at one of Iguana Lodge's casitas. The accommodation itself has a very elegant colonial / explorer feel with all the comfort you need whilst being in the middle of nature - so don't expect AC, TV or mini bar. The grounds and gardens are beautiful, very well maintained and soon feel like home. The beaches... More

My husband and I have visited the Iguana Lodge three times. It is still the best part of our journey. I can't begin to say enough good things about the owners and staff. If planning a trip, you must go out hiking with Sidnar. That is always at the top of the list to do. The food is incredible. It... More

I recently fled the cold in Chicago with 20 Pilates/yoga clients to Iguana this past month. Words cannot describe how wonderful our experience truly was. Lauren and Toby really make this place special as do the rest of the staff. The place, food, people, music, and overall energy is truly unique and unforgettable. I would highly recommend it to anyone... More
