I loved my time here at camping iguana. Chris the owner lives on site and is very kind and attentive to your needs. I slept in a dorm room which had huge soft double beds and hammocks just outside the room. There were lots of animals on site too so it made it even more special. Just a minutes walk... More

A nice woman named Kris runs the camp. You can rent a tent, pitch your own or stay in the dorms. Two bathrooms and two showers, water is limited. Small kitchen (not bad though). Outlets to charge devices. Two blocks from the beach. Aesthetically pleasing. No problems or complaints.

We spent 5 days at camping iguana and enjoyed it so much ! Beautiful sand filled garden with many hammocks, cosy beds and clean bathrooms! It's only a 1 minute walk to the beach/restaurants/shops. The small outside kitchen and the BBQ place are perfect for a nice dinner with friends. (15$ for double room with private bathroom, 6$ p person... More

Had a great time here. I was able to rent a tent for two nights since all budget location where full and moved into the dorm afterwards. Probably "best value for your bug" place in Canoa. Great location as well, since only one block from the beach. So far away enough from the loud music at night and close enough... More

We stumbled in with a tent and were offered to pitch it for only 3.50. Kitchen, bathrooms, and showers are all on site. We ended up moving into a private room because our tent is verdammt klein. The private room had an extremely affordable rate and was very clean and nice. The woman who runs the place (chisty) is incredibly... More

Great campsite/hostel, very laid back, has a kitchen, barbecue and wifi. I ended up staying a lot longer than I had planned. Many hostel pets, including an injured seagull, add to its unique ambience.

Its not a fancy place but you stay here because its cheap and clean. They have private rooms, 1 dorm room (with 5 beds) and a camping area in the middle. They do have a small communal kitchen. I stayed over new years weekend so it was completely packed but it was affordable. The camping area is right in the... More

I don't always go to smaller places with Hippies, but when I do, I prefer this one. The atmosphere was splendid and the owner Chris did what ever she could to make everyone happy!!! Of course nobody likes people from argentina because they are noisy and dirty, but everyone migles so peacefully in this very last place of perfect harmony... More
