My girlfriend and I flew to the corn islands over Thanksgiving for a dive trip, but unfortunately we stayed at Little Corn Beach and Bungalow and to this day we still wish we had stayed at Casa Iguana. We found Casa Iguana our first night on the island after getting lost trying to find our way to the town. We were met by a super cool bar/restaurant built on a cliff overlooking the water and eastern side of the island. The guy and two girls running the show were super friendly, and they make some killer drinks! Definitely try the Basilito if you make it there.
The owner also owned Little Corn dive shop, so Casa Iguana knew all about the local conditions and they really helped us get acquainted to the island. They made a killer french toast breakfast, and the view overlooking the island couldn't be beat. They had an awesome volleyball court and every day some of the local guys would go around recruiting people to play.
If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere, great drinks and food, awesome view, and a place to learn all the great spots around the island, go to Casa Iguana. It will definitely be the place we stay the next time we do a dive trip to Little Corn Island.
