This is a great way to access surf breaks, the beach club, restaurant and bar, the Golf Pro Shop and/or Iguana's Commercial Center. You can call the golf cart shuttle driver directly at or the Pro Shop at to arrange a ride with the shuttle. There is only one shuttle so when it is broken this amenity will not be available.

There is an Avis car rental office in Riviera Market, just outside of Iguana’s gates. They do not deliver cars or pick up guests but you can get a taxi out to the office to pick up a car. A reservation is suggested as their inventory is limited. Lastly, Alamo will deliver and pick up vehicles to and from your rental property in Hacienda Iguana for a $40 fee.
