"Iguana Lodge was a wonderful experience and we loved it so much we are planning to return this year!

The casitas were truly lovely, full of nice details, like lovely comfortable chairs, nice decor, nice furniture and comfy beds.

The staff were so pleasant they really made it! Toby and Lauren make wonderful hosts! The food in the evenings was delicious and the way the dinning room is set up to eat in a group, means there are great opportunities to meet other guests and exchange stories of your' days events.

The pasta night in The Pearl of Osa was brilliant, with great music and Salsa!

We saw three different types of monkey and sloths just in the Lodge's grounds! The tour operators Iguana lodge are also great!

Loved it!!!!
