Testimonial Jeni and Joe, stayed in Casa Iguana March 2013
We just wanted to drop a note to say thank you for helping to make our March visit to Casa Iguana such a flawless and memorable experience. Thanks to your responsiveness and attention to our queries, we were fully prepared for our travel experience and enjoyed every minute.

From the moment we stepped off the plane we knew we were in good hands. Our driver Joel was a really great guy who kept us entertained and informed (and made sure we got the best tequila before entering into Nayarit from Jalisco). Our arrival up the dirt road through the gates of Punta el Custodio left us speechless. The place is a true paradise and far exceeded our already high expectations. It is obvious that the manager, Ismael and his team take great pride in their work as the grounds were immaculate and he was eager to ensure that our needs were being met, which was always the case. Our housekeeper, Cynthia took great care of us. She was a tremendous cook who kept us full of good, fresh food – more than we could manage to finish. She even let the kids in on the action, helping her to sqeeze the oranges for juice in the morning and to roll the tortillas which were always fresh everyday. All of this was the icing on the cake for hours of good surfing everyday, exceptional weather, and indescribable sunsets.

Punta Custodio definitely made an impression on us. We are already planning our return.
