If you sit on the patio, you can see the ocean AND the lagoon - both sides of the island. But aside from that, both the service AND the food is amazing. Try the tamales or a burger!

We wanted something different yet something familiar. And this place was one that had them both. What ever you do don't leave without trying the ceviche.

Say hello to Manny. The food and service here are excellent, although a little pricey. Great place to watch the streets from the balcony seats. Worth a visit or two.

Description
Iguana Juan's features thoughtful burgers and killer vegetarian, along with a fusion of American and Central American flavors, awesome drinks (Bar in a Jar, anyone?) and live entertainment. Laugh it up at a stand up comedy show, or find your groove at our Reggae brunch. Eclectically decorated, overlooking the charm and excitement of San Pedro Town's "Back Street" - a great perch to see everything, "people watch" and take in the vibe of this cool, Central American island town. We are conveniently located upstairs, of an old building, on a back street, on an island in Central America-- Come find us!
