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

Nice tour, and the Iguanas are amazing! They let you feed the Iguanas and even put them on your head. It was so cool that I didn't even mind one pooping on me! ( a rare occurrence and there was a place to wash up near by)

Amazing to be so close to green iguanas! The vibrant colour of the young iguanas is just fabulous. The guide was so enthusiastic, a great entertainer and so knowledgeable about the iguanas, it is a must go to!

Located outside of the beautiful hotel of San Ignacio, this is the first time I got up front and personal with a creature I have always loved from afar. The guide was fantastic, patiently answering all our questions about the endangered green iguanas. He took us right into the enclosure and put fairly big iguanas on our heads, backs and... More

A great, inexpensive tour all about green iguanas.  I had fun on this tour,  and the guide was very knowledgeable and really cared for the iguanas. You get to hold them or if you want have about 20 of them all clinging onto your clothing and shoulders, or maybe head! The kids and adults alike in my tour enjoyed it.... More

Wow - what a great place! Our guide, Eddy, was full of information and the iguanas were lovely to hold, pet and feed. Definitely worth a visit.

Iguanas crawling all over you as you feed them leaves is a kick. A worthwhile project aided by a knowledgeable guide make this an activity that shouldn't be missed. We wnt with a small group of youths who are in Belize to learn and help out with wildlife. Made it that much more interesting.
