My 6 year old ADORED it. This was easily one of his favorite experiences of the week. You get a brief orientation and then get lots of time to feed and handle the adult and baby iguanas. Definitely a photo-op supreme.

We did this on the way back to the city from Cahal Pech, it was kind of a filler for the afternoon, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip! Abdon was our guide that day and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the garden and iguanas and it was clear that he cared very much... More

Great project, do not miss it! Experienced guide will explain why green iguanas are threatened species, and what is being done to protect them. They have an 85% survival rate at the sanctuary compared to 5% in the wild. This project is fantastic. It is under $10 to have the 1 hour tour and well worth it.

We learned all about iguanas and fed them sweet potato leaves and petted them. We also held them and they are really quite sweet. The baby ones like to crawl up your arm. My husband had 5 that decided to crawl up his arm and sit on his head!

Eddy and Humberto are two very knowledgeable, and fun guides who know everything there is to know about iguanas, and the forests surrounding the hotel. You'll get to feed, and hold iguanas and play with the little fellas.

We learned all about the green Iguanas and the conservation program. It's worth getting to feed the iguanas and to hold the little baby ones. A memorable experience!

My friend and I had a great time doing a combo medicinal trail/iguana conservation tour. Our tour guide Humberto was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. This would be a great stop for people travelling with children.

Booked this place as a treat for my husband and son who are iguana crazy- what a treat it turned out to be! Bert our guide was brilliant he made the whole experience so much fun. There is a separate area for the larger iguanas and you get to feed them- at one point my husband had at least 15... More
