Excellent! A chance to get very close to these creatures, and learn how the project is helping to protect them. Well worth a visit!

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

The walk through the section of jungle along with our guide Ben was very nice and informative. You tend to forget just how much medicine is from the jungle....and then the Iguana's!! Loved that part!! It's a lot of fun!!

We stayed at the hotel and at the last minute decided to do the Iguana project. There were only five of us on the tour: we had plenty of time to interact with the iguanas and learn about the project. Great photos!

The Iguana tour was very cool- we got to meet and learn a lot about the Iguanas and the project and got to take pictures holding them and having the babies hang around on our heads, backs, and shoulders (up to 5 at a time!). One pooped on me but I laughed it off, it was all part of the... More

Reasonably priced ($9 USD). Really fun hour spent handling and admiring the large and baby iguanas. Staff was knowledgable, pleasant and friendly. At one point my son had all the babies all over his body. Really worth the time.

We were staying at the San Ignacio Resort and one of the first things my kids wanted to do was see the iguanas and they were not disappointed. They liked it so much they went back a second time, very educational and fun. They also participated in a jungle trek with another member of the San Ignacio Resort staff who... More

We stopped here on our way out of the Cayo district to Belize City. Very interesting and fun. We all enjoyed holding big and little iguanas and learning all about them. As a mom, I appreciated the fact they wash the little guys before you hold them and have soap/water/hand sanitizer after the experience. A unique, memorable experience, highly recommended... More

It now cost Bz$18 dollars for adults, you will have a guide that explains everything and helps with you and the iguanas. This project is housed within the San Ignacio Resort Hotel grounds, where the work to breed and raise the endangered green iguanas is done, before releasing them into the wild. This project is self-sustaining through the fees charged... More

We went to the Iguana Project on our last day in San Ignacio and absolutely love the experience. Our tour guide was not shy to give us tons of iguanas to hold and interact with! Watch out though - despite what the tour guide says the iguanas will jump on you! I got quite the amazing surprise when 2 adults... More
