About Gilded Iguana
Playa Guiones: a magnificent expanse of golden sand and home to some of Central Americas most consistent surf. Regarded as some of the most stunning coastline in Costa Rica, the allure of Playa Guiones and its neighboring beaches can largely be attributed to the pioneering approach to development that the founders of the Guiones community have taken.
Guiones is one of the longest standing Central American ex-pat communities, and the fact that the first people to make this place home were an eclectic mix of eco-warriors, yogis and surfers has been crucial in forging its development.
In 1973, after falling deeply in love with Nosaras unique beauty one such pioneer decided to begin work on a construction that later became The Gilded Iguana. Today The Gilded Iguana remains standing stronger than ever as a tranquil oasis nestled in the heart of the Nosara jungle
