If you're in San Ignacio, be sure to pop along on the hour (well a little before to be safe) to visit the iguanas. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the tour itself was awesome value. We learnt lots about iguanas and got lots of lizard cuddles! They were obviously well looked after and knowing that this is... More

A great way to spend an afternoon in San Ignacio. You get up and close with the iguanas, and the guides give you lots of information about them.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Iguana Conservation Project! Our guide was Humberto and he was so knowledgeable about the conservation efforts and the iguanas themselves. We had so much fun holding them, feeding them and then getting covered in them! Getting covered with the babies was especially fun. This visit was completely worth the $9 USD per person... More

Huberto the guide, was so knowledgable and friendly. It was a unique experience to have iguanas crawl all over you. Would definitely do it again.

The Green Iguana Conservation tour provided an excellent experience for a group of six university students. Although some were reluctant, the guide reassured them and eased them into interaction with these amazing and adorable creatures. San Ignacio Hotel quickly accommodated the group (despite a change in schedule) and made sure they were well taken care of pre-and post-iguana tour.

Unlike a lot of other Conservation projects, here they actively encourage you to handle the adult and baby Iguana's. (We named the baby one's Iggl-uana's!) They are let free after a couple of years and we were promised they are more than capable of looking after themselves. It was amazing. I've been lucky enough to have visited The Galapagos Islands...

Very cool! Simple little tour at the hotel. Checkin at the front desk for your ticket. They allow you to hold iguana's. Very relaxed atmosphere and comforting. Great job by the staff explaining their program, the history, and the purpose. A quick little outting but one of the highlights of the trip.

This is a really fun way to spend the after at a luxury hotel with your little green (female) orange (male) friends. Bert's tour is very informative and allows plenty of photos ops with the Iguanas climbing all over you. Excellent conservation project thanks to the sisters that own the hotel.

We had a fun time at the Green Iguana project during our recent trip to Belize. It's at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, which is at the top of a hill right in town - very easy to walk to from the small downtown. We were told to get to the project 10 minutes early, but you probably only need... More
