Iguana is a very special place and you are very lucky if you stumble upon it. The decor is bright and colourful with an amazing view of San Cristobal from the roof. The breakfast is BIG YUMMY and varied (pancakes were the best!!!). The location is perfect, opposite a lovely little square, a crafts market and the REAL and huge AMAZING market of SC, but you are also close to the center of the city. The dorms are big with comfy beds and tons of blankets and the bathroms are huuuuge and very clean with hot hot hot showers -a rarity in central america! But what makes Iguana so special to me is the people I met there, Iguana seems to attract a particular kind of traveller. The intelligent, adventurous and lovely kind. I think this is because of Rudy, the owner. One of the warmest people I have ever met, his personality is infectious and he seems to attract like-minded people. Iguana is Rudy's second home and I am so glad a was able to share it with him! San Cristobal is a beautiful city but it was Rudy and his hostel that I will never forget. STAY HERE.
