When we visited the park there was nobody at the gate to take our entrance fee. We walked in and a girl began explaining that the iguanas were in mating season and that's why they were beat up with sores and such. She then told us that it was $20 each. We paid and she came back with some plant... More

There definitely wasn't a shortage of iguanas! None of the females were out since it was mating season, but there was a lot of the males who were jockeying for territory. They were aggressive towards one another, but not toward the humans. You really had to watch where you step so you don't step on one of those (not so... More

This must be paradise if you're an iguana. Lots and lots of them are all over the grounds (don't forget to look up at the trees!). They slither all over each other and over your sandals (I can attest to that). It's fun to watch them go for the lettuce leaves. This stop probably rates no more than a 15-20... More

It was unbelievable to have so many iguanas in one place and come to you like pets, especially if you had leaves to feed them. It was a little overwhelming to my grandchildren-6 & 10 since they had never been exposed to one let alone lots of these creatures. You can touch and feed them. So interesting to watch. The... More

Fun place to visit. If you can, get there around lunch when they are feeding the iguanas. It's interesting to watch. The owners and their family are great people who are doing their best to preserve the island and the reef. Definitely worth a visit!

A hike from a parking lot to the water. There are lots of iguanas littering the trail - you have to be careful not to step on their tails!! There's a restroom and a small shop on the way down. The "Marine Park" is a 20 foot dock with some fish swimming around it. Since it was on our tour... More

It was a pretty cool little place. There are hundreds of iguanas everywhere. You can feed and pet them. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. It is a small place but well worth the visit.

It was incredible to see all these iguanas just roaming free and not afraid to be touched. It was great to just walk among them.
