The Gilded Iguana

Playa Guiones, Nosara, Guanacaste, 50206, Costa Rica

This lively hotel-bar-restaurant has been a Nosara fixture for more than 25 years with six large, air-conditioned rooms and a small, kidney-shaped pool with a waterfall and pool bar. There are also older rooms and suites with more character; they're in a recently refreshed, shaded wooden building with louvered, screened windows that let in fresh breezes in lieu of air-conditioning. The hotel is now home to Pacifica Azul, a popular seafood restaurant with fresh fish supplied by fishermen in nearby Playa Garza. The restaurant also serves meals throughout the day, from breakfast onward.
