Love this place!! Clean, spacious, affordable, very quiet and private! It's like you have your own private resort! We just happened on to it! We are so glad we did! I highly recommend this place! It has a beautiful pool area and a kitchen that is shared by all the cabins. Everything is well cared for and nice. It's within... More

What a lovely place. Stayed here twice for one week with our two little kids. Swimmingpool perfect, cleaned every morning. Quiet place. And all wildlife just running passed, sitting in the trees, you hear the monkeys morning and evening, tucans have their spot, sloth sleeping close to you, special frogs, really everything spotted in their garden. The cabinas are nice,... More

My fiancee and I really enjoyed our time here. The rooms are ample and clean, and the staff are friendly. I particularly enjoyed talking to the owner, a gentleman from Switzerland who has been in Costa Rica for decades. There's coffee in the mornings, the grounds are stunning, the rooms are clean, the air-conditioning and the TVs both work well,... More

I didn't know much about Cahuita but took a chance and booked Cabinas Iguana for a 2 night stay. I wasn't disappointed. It's located in a secluded yet convenient part of Black Beach so we felt very safe. The owners are extremely kind and attentive. Go next door to Brigitte's for breakfast or horseback riding. The Reggae Bar one block... More

We stayed here for two nights in October 2014. The cabinas are clean and comfortable but without air conditioning. There was a fan in our cabin that provided some relief but with night time temperatures in the the high 70s and humidity in the 80 percent range, it was warm. The pool was awesome, very clean and beautiful settings. There... More

I stayed here for 4 days with my partner and daughter and we all wished that we had booked to stay longer. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the centre where most of the restaurants are, but that makes it really tranquil and great for wildlife spotting. If you walk past the last cabin it feels as...

This was probably the best place we stayed in over 2 months of travelling in Costa Rica, Nicaragua , Honduras and Guatemala. These are true "cabinas", comfortable and well spaced out in a beautiful "jungle" woodland setting, yet close to the Playa Negra beach and only a short cycle ride from the centre of Cahuita and the National Park. Swimming... More

This was a find. The little cabin at Iguana in Cahuita was cheap, clean (enough) and quite beautiful. There was a bit of noise from a gathering at the owners house, but it ended by 10pm or so, and was not an issue. As in all the cabinas we stayed at in CR, there are no windows, just wood blinds,...

We had never been to the Atlantic Coast and fell in love when we visited Cahuita and Cabinas Iguana this January. It is a perfect combination of rustic, safe, clean and in a great, off-the-beaten path location! We brought our three teen to young adult sons. They loved it, too!

Just coming back from it ( November, low season), paid a really good fare. Access to the pool, five minutes from the beach. Sophia offered my friends and I a coconut and a few bananas as a welcome treat.. Nothing to say except " amazing place & service"..
