We paid $60 for a boat from Arenal beach, and $10 each entry fee to the island. So worth it! We swam with shoals of about 50 fish, each at least half a metre in size! So many different types, and all so big too!...More

One of the most beautiful island in Panamanians pacific, a must to visit when you are going to Pedasi, or Playa Venado, you will need a boat to reach it, and it is ideal for a day trip. Only 20 minutes from the shore.

Went there on a day trip with my family. Excellent beach, great snorkeling, beautiful surroundings. The bad part is that a boat had loud music the whole day spoiling a little bit the trip. Just 15 mins from the shore by boat.

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.

Typically you can expect to stay on the island until about 3-330pm ... the boats will want to get back across the water to the mainland wel before dark (6pm). there were some people camping on the island when we arrived... More
