Caleta Iguana (Casa Rosada) - Hostel Puerto Villamil - Ecuador

An endearing little hostal run by a cast of characters right off of a sitcom, Pink Iguana is not to be confused with the Iguana Crossing Hotel down the street: the two are as absolutely unlike as it is possible for two hotels to get. Pink Iguana is a laid-back place popular with backpackers, surfers and dudes. Backpacker surfer dudes will never want to leave. It’s right on the beach and there are plenty of hammocks and benches strewn around for folks to make themselves at home. There are some board games and puzzles inside for those so inclined.

Prices are as low as you can get, and the place fills up fast. It is by far the least expensive place on the beach. The area to one side serves as the bar as well, and the happy hour is worth a visit even if you’re not staying there. The hostel gets its name from the hundreds of marine iguanas that live on the premises, climbing up its fluorescent pink walls to get some sun. Ask the owner to tell you the story of “Gringo Juan” if you can. The hostal is also known to locals as the “Pink House” (la Casa Rosada).
