“Pleasant inexpensive choice”
Reviewed 6 January 2008

We were referred here by another place that had failed to honor our reservationsand were very pleasantly surprised. Nice cabins with fans & netting. Nice pool. Short nature trail out back. 150 yards or so from the beach, which I did not find to be dirty at all. It was uncrowded at the beach and quite beautiful. This place is at least 1 kilometer from the main part of town (and the National Park) along a bumpy dirt road. There are a couple of place to eat and drink within walking distance or it is a long walk (or short drive) into Cahuita itself, where there is a large choice of good restaurants.

  • Liked — Large cabin; low price, pool
  • Disliked — far from main part of town
  • Stayed October 2007, travelled with family

Just returned from another holiday in Cahuita. We have been travelling here for the last 6 years for a month each time and love it. Yes it can rain a lot, yes the beach (black) can be covered in debris but the mix of people, the surfing, the food and the unique experience more than make up for it.

This year stayed at the Cabinas Iguana and yes there was a real Iguana in the hedge by the wooden 2 bed house we rented. In the garden viewed from the luxury of the hammock I also saw a sloth with baby, hummingbirds, guisuti (something like that - little pig things) lizards, bats, numerous birds - amazing. Iguana has a small but very nice pool apparently an iguana has been known to jump in and there was a toad whilst we were there! Owners are Martin who is Swiss origin and Sofia who is Costa Rican they have 2 charming children and help from Martha and Ricardo.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay outside of the main town then stay here or at Cabinasa Mambo/Jardin Tropicale run by Arleen who will take you dancing if you're lucky!
