The tour of the Iguana Conservation project takes about an hour but is an interesting opportunity to get up close to the iguanas and pick them up. Our guide was amazing and he told us a lot about the project as well as the iguanas. Great time!

We had lots of fun here. Hernesto was a great guide and told us a bunch of stuff we did not know. Holding, petting, and feeding the iguanas was really fun. The highlight for all of us were the babies. Super cute and friendly.

Had a really memorable time here but it was one of the most expensive things we did in San Ignacio so not sure it was totally worth it but, hey, it was vacation.

Hilarious tour and definitely out of my comfort zone. Had about 20 baby iguanas all over me and laughed and felt safe the whole time. Bert is an excellent guide!

We took this tour with friends recently; 3 biologists among us, so this was right up our alley. The guide was knowledgeable and personable, and being able to get close to the adult and baby green iguanas was great. Good for all ages; the 2 adolescents who were part of the group really enjoyed it. Strong, accurate science/conservation message also... More

This tour does not take very long and is well worth it. The guide is extremely knowledgeable and the intent of the project is very genuine. Nice to know that the resort cares so much to help restore nature.

We stopped by the San Ignacio Resort Hotel while driving around town to visit. The tour happened to be going on in a few minutes so we took the opportunity to do it. It was very interesting. Our 4 and 7 year olds were not into all the Iguanas being able to crawl around you but my husband and I... More

This was a great activity for the kids and we really liked it too. My son especially enjoyed being covered by 20 baby iguanas all over his head and arms. Super fun.

Hands on with iguanas was neat, everyone loved it. All the money goes to rehabilitation and conservations. That's good.

A conservation project on the hotel property. A very hands on experience. Hopefully you like iguanas hanging all over you.
