Costa Rica: Siete


Time was bittersweet in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica this year. Lodging is over-priced with few, enticing options. Plus, two out of three times at Iguana Lodge in Puerto Jimenez, I was struck by a raging stomach virus. I suspect it was unpasteurized ice cream. Sigh. It sure tasted good.

But, the thought of never returning to this neck-of-the-woods, where Scarlet Macaws rule the skies, and animals out-number people, makes me sad. I love it - and I’ll always love Iguana 🦎 Lodge! 

Follow our footsteps in Osa...




Beach bonfire preparations. Iguana Lodge has a fun, beach party every week. But, I wish they wouldn't wait until dark to serve the food. It's like eating in a black hole.

Next time, instead of driving by Jaco with our tourist radar on high, we stop and stay!

I've been to this incredible country once a few years ago and I've been wishing I could return.

Sorry to hear you were sick while on holiday. I've never been to Costa Rica so it was great to see the beautiful photos.

Beautiful photos of an exotic location. The scarlet macaw is stunning! We've been sick while traveling in Mexico. No fun at all!

Looks like a great place - I find eating without my glasses the same as eating in the dark!!
