We stayed at the top floor of a casita for two nights and it was the best hotel room experience of my life. The casitas don’t have normal walls, but walls made of mosquito net with retractable blinds to stop rain from getting in. This makes you feel just as if you are staying in the jungle with all the sounds of insects and animals.
The casita we stayed in also has a private deck facing the jungle with deck chairs. Waking early and sitting there listening and watching as the forest come alive is pure magic! We woke to the sound of howler monkeys in the trees just above the casita every morning. We had numerous sitings of white faced monkeys, iguanas, cool Halloween crabs and lizards at the lodge. It is hot in Puerto Jimenez, but the casita had two fans that kept us nice and cool.
The casita is very clean, has a very nice bed, a cool tropical shower and nice furniture.
The lodge has a communal dinner over the main lodge. There is another restaurant for lunches and dinners. The view is great, the food ok. The breakfast, served at the main lodge, is by far the best food at the lodge. We had mango scones, banana crepes and fresh fruit. Delicious!
The people who work at Iguana were very friendly and were always ready to help us. I highly recommend the Iguana Lodge.
