Staying at Casa Iguana was one of the best choices we made when visiting Little Corn Island. We were greeted at the dock by the manager, Abner, who was more than happy to help us with anything we needed or any problem we had throughout the trip. Everyone at Casa Iguana just made the experience there even more worth while and very enjoyable.
We were lucky enough to get Casita 12 (the pink one) which was the best Casita on the resort. It was closest to the beach, had the best view, in the middle of the resort, and had the best breeze at night. It is equipped with a nice mosquito net and an extra futon. Although it was hot our room always had a good temperature with a nice breeze from the ocean because we kept all of our windows and doors open with the screens. Every morning we woke up and sat on our hammocks on the back porch over looking a beautiful scenery of the beach. The rooms are well kept, very safe, and private. The outdoor showers were good for a rinse off during the day, but after the sun goes down the water can get very cold which was actually very enjoyable considering the the blazing heat.
When ordering the food be aware that they give you a huge plate, which is not bad considering how delicious the food was. For example, the Coconut French toast has only four pieces, but it can serve 2 people.
The staff was amazing and very genuine. Especially the manager who was extremely helpful and very friendly, even after working huge shifts. He directed towards all the amazing sights to see and gave us a personal tour of the island. After spending many lunches and dinners together we developed a friendship with him. He is a great manager and will go out of his way to help you with anything you need. He is the one to see if you have any questions. He will be glad to help and he will mostly likely know the answer.
The beaches and dives were beautiful. Make sure to try the night dive. Don't forget your flashlight because there are night crabs.
Our trip was amazing. Not only did we fall in love with the island, but we fell in love with the friendly people and atmosphere. We will definitely be visiting again.
