There are hundreds of ways to experience Costa Rica, but we find being smack dab in the middle of a rainforest, and right on the side of a lava-flowing volcano is certainly one of the most exciting (and let’s face it, pretty cool too).

And since we’re on the subject of cool- how about a double pool with waterfall and hot pool just above it, eclectic rooms infused with locally-designed touches, and even a “Madman’s Maze” made from hibiscus with enough twists and turns to make you crazy. At Lost Iguana Resort & Spa, when you’re not busy staring in amazement at nature’s best display of fireworks from your private balcony, you’ll be kept blissfully busy with hot springs, nature trail explorations, moments of pure relaxation at private hot springs, and incredible wildlife sightings.

Something not to be missed here is their Balinese-style Golden Gecko Spa. Each romantic thatched bungalow has its own fireplace, and incidentally, they’re the only ones in Costa Rica to use YonKa products, masterful blends of all natural extracts designed to soothe, revive and rejuvenate skin. Come on, you know you’re craving some Costa Rica… http://www.lostiguanaresort.com/
