We arrived (14th Feb. 2015 ) at Dos Iguanos, following a fantastic 11 day coast to coast road trip across the north of Costa Rica. Our first impression upon sight of the property was that we had made an excellent decision, both with the house and also the location.
The larger of the Dos Iguanos is bright, airy & large, the upstairs bedroom area being a particularly good space. The kitchen & appliances were adequate for purpose and the patio absolutely suited for outdoor living. There is plenty of shade on offer here both on the patio and in the garden. The downstairs bathroom was large having both a bath & shower.
Walk 40 metres through the unspoilt natural garden and you find the pebble beach with small areas of sand, backed by amazing pieces of driftwood. If the tide is in swimming is easy, if out, the beach is very rocky and aqua shoes allow you to still wander around in the rock pools. We were visited in the garden by howler & capuchin monkeys, iguanas and squirrels plus numerous birds, whilst pelicans, frigates and herons could be seen at the beach.
Cabuya is a great virtually unspoilt fishing village, 4 or 5 "restaurants" of which Marvins was our favourite. Two local supermarkets provide most daily needs although fresh meat is best brought in from Cabano. A small second hand book shop plus a gift shop completes the shopping options. Roads are unpaved and most people walk around or hire bikes. Cabo Blanco Reserve is just 2km away & its 6 mile round trip hike to a fantastic beach complete with wildlife spotting on the way, is a must do.
Finally, our booking through the owner Sean went without a hitch and manager Cindy was on hand to deal with any issues arising during our stay. We left feeling relaxed and well rested although a little sad we weren`t staying longer.
