Hotel Iguanazul

Playa Blanca, North end of Playa Junquillal, Playa Junquillal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Fodor’s Expert Review

On a bluff overlooking lava rocks replete with tide pools, and beyond them the sea, this hotel offers eco-friendy rooms on the shores of pristine Playa Blanca. It has three types of rooms—ocean-view rooms with king beds, poolside rooms, and eco rooms with queen beds. The budget-friendly eco rooms leave a minimal environmental footprint with energy-efficient lighting, organic soaps and cotton sheets, a gray-water system, recycling program, and non-toxic cleaning products. Free Wi-Fi and airport transportation are included. The food at the restaurant is locally sourced, organic, and covers the spectrum from seafood to pasta. A comforting perk is that the town doctor lives on-site at the attached condominiums, also for rent.
