Combine this with their good service, relaxed vibe, and great food, and you can see why the place holds such popularity.
Amenities:Swimming Pool, on-site surf lessons, restaraunt, etc.
What's Special:The Iguana is just a few steps from the beach, about a 5 minute walk tops. Aside from the convenience of the on-site restaraunt and pool, they are in coalition with Nosara Surf Academy, so you can book lessons at the hotel, as well as kayak/SUP tours, sport fishing charters, board rentals, etc. They are also more than willing to take care of bookings for activities outside the hotel, such as the canopy zipline tour.
