This is a small sanctuary for iguanas (and a few other animals) just on the edge of the downtown area of Manzanillo. You won't believe how many different sizes/types/colors there are. It is right along a city street about a block long so you can just walk up and see them right from the sidewalk.

The iguanas were cool, but the best part is seeing them in the trees and you can do that from the street. we were really dissapointed.

The iguanas were huge and plentiful here. I've never seen so many or so big! You can see them all basking in the sun in the trees. Very cool. When you go inside you can see the volunteers chopping food. There are also a few other animals like raccoons, turtles, tejon?, a pigs and some chickens. It's pretty rustic on... More

you can see the iguanas from the sidewalk. Once inside it's a little depressing. Couple racoons sharing a very small cage and several other animals tied up.

It was hard to find but well worth it, your best bet is to have a taxi take you. It's not in the best part of town but I never felt threaten or concerned for my safety.

This place was interesting and worth the trip of finding it, that is one thing that I would recommend that you find someone that knows where the place is. I would the recommend this to everyone!

It's great to see the iguanas climbing onto the roof of the iguanario's tin shelter and clambering through the gutter below , but once you go through the gate it's quite depressing. About 15 pigeons and doves share a crowded cage with no room to stretch, while an exotic-looking bird cowers nervously and silent in the corner of his -... More

Dozens of iguanas visible from the road, in the trees and on the ground just over the wall by the sidewalk. We heard it was very smelly and dirty inside, so did not bother going in.

very basic operation, well worth the trek to go see. Many varietes, most were in the trees, visible from the road. They accept donation.
