My boyfriend and I went to Little Corn Island for a much needed vacation, and stayed 7 nights at Casa Iguana. We rented a Gran Casita, and it was absolutely perfect- 2 futons, our bed, and enough room to stay inside and read, an area to make our rum cocktails, and the much beloved hammocks out facing the ocean.

We began our stay on Little Corn and Casa Iguana (for a week-long scuba diving vacation) with one of the renowned dinners at the Lodge. We sat with a lovely Aussie couple who reported to us that they had spent the past five days on the island and that we were staying on "the Hilton" of the island. Indeed, they... More

We returned to CI after 5 years and while it is still a great place to stay and our favorite on Little Corn, it appears to be trying to move upmarket especially in the food area where the cuisine has become very "international" and lost the local feeling. It is very good but you could be eating anywhere! We noticed... More

Casa Iguana has an excellent staff. Yes, it is somewhat camp-like in that it has colorful, rustic accommodations with outdoor showers. However, you cannot beat its location and fabulous vibe. They have a great bar- ask the bartender for a special rum drink and he'll give you a list of personal concoctions to choose from. They are located in one... More

We were on Little Corn Island over Christmas. Casa Iguana is a hidden little gem. The rooms were clean and the staff was really nice. The view from the Grand Casita was so beautiful. It is very quiet and chill. This is a great place if you are looking for relaxation with an incredible view. We loved this place and... More

One of the more chill locations, I have experienced in Central America. The staff was very accomodating and the view from Casita Grande is pretty special. A welcomed treat if you arrive to Casa Iguana after a rough panga ride from Big Corn Island.

We had a great time during our stay at Casa Iguana on Little Corn Island. The casita was neat, clean and was what we hope we would get. The breakfasts and dinners were good and all the staff were most helpful. If all goes as planned, we will return to Casa Iguana in August.

I've spent over a week on Little Corn Island, but only two nights in Casa Iguana. I admit that this place is beautiful and food is good, but staff is unbelievably rude. They approach you with a fake smile and whenever you ask them for something, drink or a menu, they looked annoyed like you were disturbing them. They make... More

Wow, wow, wow! What a fantastic resort on a fantastic little island. Despite the fact it was raining when we arrived, staff was at the pier to greet us and take our luggage to our casita. As we took our stroll through the jungle they gave us some great info on the island. The staff was great…from the guys cleaning... More
