I was talked into this by my conservation minded wife, and as usual she was 100% right! A great experience that helps support a good cause - money well spent! very knowledgeable and informative tour guides take you through the small habitat enclosures and allow you (and the kiddos!) to feed and directly interact with those wily little iguanas and...

Nigel our guide gave us a one on one tour. He was very informative and we learned so much about the project and how important the project is for the green iguanas.

While you might think this is a little lame, it really was good fun. Excellent guide and interesting too. Wear long sleeves perhaps if you dont want to get scratched. It's clear these animals are really well cared for and it's nice to think you're supporting them. We got a 10% off card for the restaurant from them, which makes... More

Green Iguana Project was on our hotel grounds, Nigel gave a fun 1 hr tour where we fed, held & played with the iguanas. The kids loved it when he piled up the baby iguanas on the kid’s shoulders and hats! Expensive at $9 US/person but $$ goes to keeping the program running. 1 hr tour leaves on the hour... More

When I went, it was only two people plus the guide, so it was very intimate. Our guide, Nigel, told us about the project and gave us a lot of information about the iguanas. The coolest part was when he brought in a bunch of leaves and let us feed them, and that's when the iguanas all swarmed. Think World... More

We spent an enjoyable hour at the Green Iguana conservation project. You learn about these creatures and get up close to them. Feeding time is the highlight. These guys really move when those leaves appear. No trip would be complete without a photo with a baby iguana on your head!

These tours only start on the hour, which we didn't know before. The walk up is quite exhausting in the local heat so be on time. Our guide was fun and also showed us some herbs on the short walk to the Iguana cages. On this tour you actually get to play with them for a good while and get... More

Our guide was absolutely fantastic and turned out to be a great friend for our trip! There are so many iguanas there, and you get to hold and feed them if you go in a small group. Tons of time for great photos and you learn a lot. You can also go on the medicinal plant trail. The hotel is... More

I went with two other friends and this was a good way to spend about an hour. Our guide could have been better and we felt like we had to ask him to explain things multiple times. The hotel area is beautiful and we had lots of fun feeding and petting the adult and baby iguanas. Good activity to do... More
