Iguana Lodge is located in a very remote area of Costa Rica. Transportation to the Lodge can be expensive as only taxis arrive there. Therefore we decided to drive there. The drive from Manuel Antonio was perfect. The road had asfalt until Puerto Jimenez and there from is open road but it was OK. The hotel is located in the... More

Hubs and I had stayed at the Iguana Lodge in December 2015 for a friend's wedding at the Iguana Lodge. The highlight of my trip was the amazing food at the Iguana Lodge, the "buffet" style breakfast was too die for. They had fresh avocado, tropical fruits and freshly baked goods everyday. The dinner here was extremely good as well... More

Our Casita - the shower... oh my goodness, so amazing! And the products were lovely too. The bed was comfy and covered by a net and the hammock on the deck was great... More

I stayed at the casita in a room with fans and a mosquitoes net over the bed, no ac but bugs weren't so bad as long as you choose candle lights instead of the light. The surrounds are very beautiful with lush vegetation, birds such as owls, macaws and hummingbirds. There is a slough above the trees and we saw... More

This was the last stop on our trip to wind down & relax & that's just what we did. Kind, helpful & attentive staff in all areas. Beautiful surroundings, lovely & comfortable open-air rooms (one of our favorite aspects!) whole property had a very spa-like zen feel. We would definitely recommend! They even had a large stash of insect repellent... More

Iguana Lodge was a wonderful, relaxing oasis on the Osa. The grounds are absolutely beautiful with luscious greens everywhere, which was unexpected - we had assumed the lodge was predominantly beach and pool oriented, but what we got was a great combination of beach and wildlife. We were lucky to stay in one of the casitas that overlooked the beach... More

If you are looking for a laid back, hammock in the shade getaway, then the Iguana Lodge is just right. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful, the property is right on the beach and they are more than happy to make whatever arrangements you want for the various excursions that are available. Sid, the nature guide is... More
