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.

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

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
