Bring some green grapes or a peeled banana and sk the guide first. The over 2,000 iguana's love these and will come out from under the deck to gobble down a piece of the thrown fruit. Bring you camera and the fruit!!

We had the island almost to ourselves, and the hundreds of iguanas we came across. The Park Service attendant gave us a helpful orientation and then let us explore on our own. We walked all the way to the north side of the island to a gazebo (entry fee goes up for access to the whole island, rather than only... More

Great place to visit. We didn't do a package. We jumped on a boat with Caribbean Cruises at Blue Haven. And they dropped us off at 930. The boat ride is only about 10 minutes. We instructed Spock up at 1:00 pm which was just enough time. We walked the trail after a brief narrative by the local ranger guy.... More

Iguana reserve was just so so. Tons of iguana and a small building with a few signs that provide info. Excellent sand beach though - great for exploring where we saw a 3 ft lemon shark and followed him around in the shallows. Path to other side of the island was closed due to maintenance??? Interesting but not a must... More

We visited the island as part of a snorkeling tour. We saw two of the iguanas. There are very interesting and easy to watch. The beach in this area is very nice.

Not much here but some iguanas and a little bit of information and some beautiful views. Which is pretty cool and well worth it as long as this is a stop-off on a more involved excursion like a kayaking trip or a boat trip. I can't imagine making this a destination in its own right.

We stopped at Little Water Cay on a snorkel trip and were mesmerized by its beauty. This uninhabited island across the Leeward Going Through is surrounded by pale blue water and is home to green iguanas. Once you hike toward the center on one of the paths, stand still and listen - and you will hear the iguanas moving around... More

We stopped at Little Water Cay during a snorkeling tour & were just amazed by its beauty. While there are paths, it appeared as though most people do not stay on them. We were only able to see a couple of iguanas, however this could’ve been due to the side of the island we were on. (We weren’t on the... More

Close to Provo with great swimming and a lovely new visitor's centre. Nice to see the Rock Iguanas. Informative signage throughout.

First of all, this is not a tourist park. It isn't Disney World. It's a nature reserve for a specific species of Iguana which operates on a shoestring and funds itself by visitors. That having been said it's a lovely afternoon out and you can get there as part or a larger tour or by getting a boat. Prepare to... More
