We had a great 5 days at Iguana Lodge. The staff and owner were very friendly and responsive. The room was comfortable. There was a bit of noise from the kitchen and food aromas at times. The only downside to the property was the road leading from Puerto Jimenez to Iguana Lodge. The beachfront and pool were wonderful. Very relaxing. Food was great but more options would have been nice a well. Morning breakfasts were great.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is full of interesting vegitation in a very natural , lightly groomed setting with endless opportunitied for nature/wildlife photography. The beach is accessible for walks and swimming. The 'lapas' (scarlet Macaws) are numberous and amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Be prepared for extreemly humid conditions outside and early mornings with lots of critter calls to wake you. The road in is not paved from Puerto Jimenez - which adds to the experience. We made the 7hr scenic drive from San Jose - but a 40 min flight into Pto Jimenez is a more doable for most. We highly recommend Iguana Lodge for the adventursome eco-traveler,

We had to leave the country early due to the pandemic. We tried to cancel reservation a week prior to our scheduled arrival, they charged us full price anyway!
