The Lost Iguana and Arenal were the first leg of our 12 day trip to CR -- our first time. We had some trepidation about booking a resort in a remote area of a foreign country; we made our decision based on positive Trip Advisor reviews. The resort and our time in the jungle were absolutely magical -- a great kickoff to a fantastic trip. I agree with the reviewers who remind you that if you are expecting fancy American amenities or roses on your bed, try elsewhere such as The Springs, which is very expensive. But if you want a beautiful resort in a lush and exotic locale, this is truly a gem. Our room was tastefully appointed to emphasize the natural setting. We woke up each morning to views of the volcano and abundant wildlife. We had a car and drove to nearby excursions such as Sky Trek and The Springs on a day pass -- both about a half an hour away. At night we relaxed by the heated pool; the bartender and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Loved!
