Iguana Lodge, a lush tropical getaway on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, has everything you need to make this vacation the experience of a lifetime

Iguana Lodge

Iguana Lodge is nestled in the jungle tropics, an easy walk from a six-mile stretch of deserted beach. The water is a delightful 84 degrees all year round, and the sandy beach is made for swimming. This location is also perfect for boogie boarding, paddle boarding and kayaking. Paddle boards, kayaks, and boogie boards are all free to use, so you can pack lightly and not miss a beat. What’s more, a fast surf break has developed in the last few years, making it a great site for surfing as well.

The reef, about a half-mile out from the shore, is a perfect place to spend a few hours snorkeling and taking in the wonders beneath the waves. And for the more athletic minded, the reef is a perfect distance for a strenuous swim from the shore. This site is also a fisherman’s dream with world-class catch and release. The waters are filled with sailfish, marlin, snapper, mahi-mahi, snook, tuna and more. Last but not least, the water off the Osa Peninsula is home to 25 species of dolphin, as well as whale, manta rays, sea turtles, and schools of colorful tropical fish. Take it all in with a whale and dolphin safari, arranged on your schedule through one of the tour companies in collaboration with Iguana Lodge. The water wonderland of Costa Rica is perfect for avid sea lovers and those just getting their feet wet on a vacation in Costa Rica.

But you won’t be missing out even if you just want to hang out on the beach. Iguana Lodge features a beach deck with deck chairs and yoga mats overlooking the surf, as well as a sprinkling of native palapas and a large hammock shack. Free, fast wifi is available on the beach, for those that want to bring their work with them to one of the best offices on the planet. And for those that just want to enjoy the ambience, the Pearl Beach Bar and Grill, located onsite has top-notch drinks and modern, fresh, and edgy food. This is a public restaurant and a great place to meet the locals, giving you the chance to take in the real flavor of Costa Rica.

To top it off, there are frequent volleyball matches on the beach, and every Tuesday night, you’ll find a festival beach barbeque under the stars. Speaking of stars, the skies light up every night with more stars than you can possibly imagine. Even more amazing, they are reflected in the bioluminescence of the water, giving the night a magical quality you won’t want to miss. This is one of the most amazing sites that you’ll ever have the fortune to experience—and don’t forget the jungle spa, 55 foot chemical free pool, jaccuzzi, complimentary yoga classes, and a host of other amenities that make Iguana Lodge the tropical getaway of a lifetime.
