Iguanas, Crocodiles & Eco Ambitions – Costalegre, Mexico

Boca de Iguanas, just north of the village of Melaque on Mexico’s gorgeous Costalegre, may have some work to do to really qualify as an eco resort, as they boast. However, there are a lot of other reasons to visit including one of our favorite pools in Mexico.

An eco-resort on the Costalegre in Mexico

Boca de Iguanas is an interesting melding of homes, condos, and charmingly designed hotel rooms, some with outdoor bathrooms, enormous upstairs terraces and delightful sunken bathtubs.

Located down a meandering dirt road, Boca de Iguanas is right on a fine white sand beach that arcs elegantly and has surf that’s gentle and safe to swim in. For even gentler surf the resort has one of the most beautiful pools we’ve seen.

The place isn't called Boca de Iguanas for nothing.

Those warning signs aren’t up simply because they’re cute. This is just one of the crocodiles that live in the area.
