  • The Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Iguanita was created with the purpose of protecting the marine, natural and cultural resources in the low basin of Quebrada Grande, as well as low-impact tourist development. It is an area that is located in the Peninsula of Nacascolo, in the Conservation Area of Guanacaste, northwest of Costa Rica. It has an area of 115 acres and protects a great diversity of natural and cultural resources, including beach, estuary, mangrove swamp, gallery forest and wooded cliff; also archaeological and historical sites. Among the assets it protects is the rescue of pre-Hispanic cultural resources in their natural environment, which were fundamental components in the social, economic and religious network that linked the more than 65 villages around Bahia Culebra. The area of Iguanita is a natural unit that includes an extraordinary mangrove of 33.3 hectares and a gray sand beach of approximately 1.5 kilometers in length, surrounded by an environment of gallery forest, tropical forest, with a great diversity of flora and fauna, pre-Columbian and historical archaeological resources, coastal hills and plains, marine resources, scenic views to and from the Culebra Bay and surroundings. It is especially visited by family groups during holy Week, Christmas and New Year, who camp for several days.
