A good way to pass an hour in old Manzanillo

Let's be honest, there is not a lot in old Mazanillo. All guests want to go there and after many years, this is the only thing I still enjoy every time. Take your camera!

We stopped at the iguanario while in Manzanillo for a few days and were blown away by the amount of iguanas there! It's incredible. They are well taken care of and the staff is very friendly. We got to see them be fed and learned about the species a bit from Pedro. There are other animals there as well. The... More

We have visited the Iguanario several of times over the past four years and have always been amazed with the variety of Iguanas to see and yes, "interact" with. Of course, we have never touched an iguana here, but they are definitely close enough, but to be honest they look like little dinosaurs. The absolute best part of the entire... More

If you look Iguanas, you will love this family run santuary/zoo in Manzanillo. Free to the public, just give to donation. You will learn lots. Although it helps if you know some spanish.

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.
