Casa Iguana
Reviewed 29 January 2011

We returned to CI after 5 years and while it is still a great place to stay and our favorite on Little Corn, it appears to be trying to move upmarket especially in the food area where the cuisine has become very "international" and lost the local feeling. It is very good but you could be eating anywhere! We noticed that more guests are going to local restaurants to eat now.
Also, as the deck has been enlarged (a great improvement) the dining at big tables where you used to meet other guests has been eliminated and tables are for 2 or 4. Nice but not the friendly feel it used to have.
The staff were friendly and service was great but it is definitely less sociable than it used to be.
I rated sleep quality lower because we thought the pillows were very thin.
They have internet access on their computers but it is far more expensive than others (Delphines) in town.

Casa Iguana has an excellent staff. Yes, it is somewhat camp-like in that it has colorful, rustic accommodations with outdoor showers. However, you cannot beat its location and fabulous vibe. They have a great bar- ask the bartender for a special rum drink and he'll give you a list of personal concoctions to choose from. They are located in one of the most stunning spots on earth so you are guaranteed beautiful vistas wherever you are. With no cars on the island and spotty internet (at best), you will inevitably find peace, quiet, and relaxation. Oh, and don't miss the coconut bread french toast.

We were on Little Corn Island over Christmas. Casa Iguana is a hidden little gem. The rooms were clean and the staff was really nice. The view from the Grand Casita was so beautiful. It is very quiet and chill. This is a great place if you are looking for relaxation with an incredible view. We loved this place and would recommend it.

One of the more chill locations, I have experienced in Central America. The staff was very accomodating and the view from Casita Grande is pretty special. A welcomed treat if you arrive to Casa Iguana after a rough panga ride from Big Corn Island.

We had a great time during our stay at Casa Iguana on Little Corn Island. The casita was neat, clean and was what we hope we would get. The breakfasts and dinners were good and all the staff were most helpful. If all goes as planned, we will return to Casa Iguana in August.
