Iguanas are cool

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

Took a 5 minute boat ride out to the island with Caribbean Cruisin'. Many rock iguanas on the two hiking trails. The iguanas are rather small compared to others we've seen in Mexico. If you go to the north side of the island, not many people venture that far and you can have the whole beach to yourself. Did some... More

Loved this place - all the iguanas are so cute! It was really beautiful and see all the conch in the water was cool.

It's one hot little island, but there is always a chance to cool down in the beautiful turquoise waters of TCI. Great info and good photo opps. Very unique outing.

We did a kayak excursion through Big Blue Unlimited and we went to this island. It was a beautiful small island with a gorgeous beach. It has a short pathway through it where we were able to see several iguanas! Was quite enjoyable
