The island is beautiful, however, it seems that people don't take much care of it. Despite of the sign prohibiting littering, there was garbage in many places. The boat trip costs $60 (for up to 6 people). You should register at your arrival to the...More

There are no restaurants or toilets etc on Isla Iguana ... this would be a day trip only. If you want food / drinks, you need to bring them with you...and bring your garbage back to the mainland with you.
