Holy Week, called Samana Santa here, is celebrated all over the world. The population of Costa Rica is predominantly Roman Catholic so the Holy Week is one of the largest celebrations you’ll see in this beautiful country. Traditionally the Holy Week takes place during the last week of Lent and marks the final week of the life of Jesus Christ before his crucifixion on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter Sunday. During this week the Hotel Iguanazul is completely booked out. The hotel fills with guests, many of whom are from Costa Rica itself. Samana Santa is the perfect time to get away from work and enjoy a beach-side holiday with family and friends. If you’re lucky enough to be in Costa Rica during the holy week, drop in and see us! We’ll have lots of food and drink specials and you’ll get to socialize with people from all over the country. Costa Rican’s (or Tica’s as they call themselves) are very proud of their country. Come say hi.
My first visit to Tamarindo was in the 1990s. It was a sleepy fishing village, dusty and almost deserted at certain times of the year. Today, Tamarindo has morphed into the most “happening” destination in the area and is only 25 minutes north of Hotel Iguanazul. There is certainly no shortage of activities there. If you are interested in fun at the beach, water sports, fine dining, nightlife and wildlife, Tamarindo is a worthy choice. This fun town is the host to many surfing competitions with the famous Witches Rock (pictured) and Playa Grande surf breaks right at your front door. If catching a wave is not your “thing” you can snorkel, go sport fishing or just hang out and watch the action at the beach volleyball tournaments. There is also a wide variety of restaurants and hotels that have been influenced by tourists who have made Tamarindo their home. As the most developed beach on the Nicoya Peninsula, Tamarindo has earned the nickname “Tamagringo”. Restaurants range from high-end cuisine to neighbourhood Costa Rican “sodas” and dining options including everything from organic menus to Mediterranean, Thai, Mexican, American, Japanese, International, Argentinian steak houses and more. With all this development going […]

Most beaches in Costa Rica are just “drop-dead” beautiful but if you want to discover the “cleanest” beach, this is the place! To foster the preservation of that natural resource, many beaches enter into an ecological certification program known as the Blue Flag program. In 2013 a total 122 beaches submitted applications and 107 of them qualified for the Blue Flag. Blue Flag designations for 2013 were awarded in 10 categories: beaches, communities, schools, natural protected areas, watersheds, climate change, climate neutral community, community health, sustainable homes and special events. Playa Junquillal in Guanacaste should be proud of the numerous ecological efforts of this area and the surrounding communities. A stroll down the beach will bring you to the area where the Blue Flag is flown with pride. Playa Junquillal is just one of the beaches in the immediate area to receive a Blue Flag. The beaches and towns in this vicinity are notably clean and cared for. If you hike or drive slightly north, the dark sands of Playa Junquillal transform into the white sands of Playa Blanca where Hotel Iguanazul makes it’s home. This hotel and beach are one of the best-kept secrets in the country. The beach […]
