Situated at the toes of the Arenal Volcano, near La Fortuna, the Lost Iguana Resort is host to some of the most stunning views in the country. The 100 acres of land is home to jungle and river, with each of the 41 suites, rooms, and villas offering more than ample space and a balcony from which one may watch lava flow down the Arenal Volcano.
