We loved our stay at the Iguana lodge! Everything was very well maintained and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us organize tours and transportation for whatever we wanted to do. The owners Toby and Lauren were lovely and chatted with us daily. The beach in front of the lodge is not private but there were not... More

The Iguana Lodge was perfect for a one week relaxation vacation with access to wonderful birds and wildlife both at the resort and on tours they arranged for us. The ocean and surrounding jungle are incredibly beautiful, as are the grounds of the lodge; the Iguana's food is fantastic, their yoga platforms and pool amazing. Our comfortable and lovely room...

Best place we have ever been. The Osa Peninsula is magical and the Iguana Lodge is absolutely stunning. It is few steps from the ocean so you wake up and fall asleep with the sound of the crashing waves. The food is great, the grounds are lush but at the same time impeccably maintained. I will recommend it to anyone... More

I spent the last 3 days of my Costa Rica trip at this resort and couldn't be happier. I stayed in the Casitas and woke up to the sound of waves, birds and monkeys in the mornings. The resort has plenty of water toys to keep active (kayaks, paddle boarding, boogie boards, etc) which is nice to be able to... More

It was a wonderful place to stay. Toby and Lauren were great hosts. Enjoyed having dinner with them a couple of times for we were there. It is a great place to just relax or travel from to see the national Forest. Gabriel's was a very good host and very attentive at the restaurant.

Iguana Lodge gets it just right: a beautiful place, whether you want to do a lot or a little, with comfortable accommodation, great food and marvelous staff. I was traveling with friends and was upgraded to a casita so I could stay next to them -- a lovely big bedroom with a verandah, just right for waking to the sounds... More

Toby and Lauren have created a magical place. The accommodations are spacious, the view and grounds gorgeous. Waking up to the sounds of monkeys and macaws made the jungle feel right outside our door, which it was! Delicious food, friendly staff and plenty of ideas for activities were all part of the experience. I highly recommend the birding walks with... More
