We were shocked as we walked in to have Iguana's EVERYWHERE. You can pet the older ones and get great photos. They give you a plant stalk and it's like candy for a baby as the iguana's crawl over each other and you, to chow down on the plant.

Nice for an hour, the iguanas were everywhere on top of trees, roofs and on the ground at the water you have large tarpon& other large fish we went here from a cruise ship but you can pay 10 dollars on the gate.

It's not really accurate to call it a "Park". It's more a small private zoo. From the car park, you descend to the main building and are immediately met by the iguanas (40 or 50 of them). They're entirely harmless, but still children might get a little overwhelmed because the iguanas are used to being hand-fed and will approach humans.... More

There are literally hundreds of iguanas roaming the property. That part is awesome. You can feed the iguanas leaves and vegetation. That was awesome. They are so beautiful (and stinky)! Many huge adults. They gave it pretty good. Just don't let them scratch your feet if you have sandals on. They don't mean to. You can gently pet them too.... More

The iguana farm is definitely worth the trip (approx. 30-45 min. from the West Bay/West End areas). It's located near Frenchy's 44, which is where you can board a boat to Little French Key, therefore, a trip to both can easily be combined in one day. Iguanas of all sizes were roaming everywhere. Staff will give you leaves to feed... More

This was an awesome experience, especially for the kids. The girls and I are afraid of the iguanas but the ones here (and there are plenty of them everywhere, even on the roof) are very docile. We got to feed them. It was just a cool experience.

If you like Iguanas, this is the place to go. We rented a taxi and guide for the day and this is one of the places they took us (after we asked). $10 per person allowed us to feed the iguanas, see the caged monkeys, and some type of fish down by the harbor. This was pretty basic so if... More

If you are traveling with kids, this will be a fun place to visit. Located just on the edge of French Harbour, depending on where you are staying on the island it can be a challenge to get to, but it is worth it. Iguanas, of all sizes, are everywhere. Every time that I have been here, the staff has... More

Having been to the park before we decided to go again and it was a let down. It was raining off and on so it wasn't the fault of the park. Iguanas are cold blooded and head to the trees when it rains looking for warm. If it is a sunny day they will be all over the place. Since... More

The only place that I've been where there are more iguanas than here is the Galapagos. This place has an abundance of them of all sizes. They are all over - on the ground, in the trees, and on the buildings. You can pet them and even pick them up as they are quite harmless creatures. The park also has... More
