Lost Iguana Resort and Spa

A jungle retreat further removed from the rest of the Arenal hotels, Lost Iguana sits on 120acres of primary rain forest. It is the perfect off-the-beaten path hotel option within reach of all there is to do and see while visiting the Arenal region.

While most regional tours with Lost Iguana are a slightly longer transfer ride (additional 15-minutes) due to its unique location, the abundance of opportunities in and around the resort surely make-up for the added transfer minutes. There are two trails on the property, a one and two-hour loop, through primary rain forest. You can sign-up for a guided day or night hike on these trails with one of the local Lost Iguana guides who will help point out the various species of plant and wildlife. There is a double pool with fresh water and waterfall as well as a heated pool with swim-up bar. The Palapa Bar serves up cold drinks and mixed cocktails and also offers lighter fare dishes. The Blue Hibiscus Restaurant is decorated with macadamia nut shell murals and guaba chandeliers. For wellness options make sure to check-out one of the most beautiful spas in the region, The Golden Gecko Spa, or enjoy yoga in the open-air pavilion.
