Iguanas everywhere

We stopped by briefly as part of a city tour. Lots of iguanas and they were quite big. Worth seeing, especially if you are not going to the Galapagos.

Located right in the middle of the central district, this park has a large colony of land iguanas. They are docile, easy to photograph, and favorites with both tourists and locals.

Its a small park however, it is well maintained and you can see giant iguanas all over the park. Their habitat is in this park and they enjoyed the company of the people around.

The iguanas have the run of the park. You can see them clustered around a pool, basking on the sidewalks and climbing the trees. Watching the kids feeding them was fascinating.

If one had not gone to the Galapagos, the iguanas here would be fun to watch. However, they were like any other inner city creature - looking for food and climbing all over benches to get to lettuce a woman was feeding them. The turtle area seemed very over populated.

what a great park to see the iguanas roam around!! Iguanas of all sizes...on the walkway, in the trees, on the grass. Lots of interesting photo ops.

This park is beautifull, the animals over there are really easy to approach and we could even touch them (Iguanas). We recommend this place to anyone, especially with kids. There's also fish, turtles and a lot of birds. The trees are enormous and tall.

Another place to watch people enjoying themselves. The Iguanas are surprisingly large and placid. Completely habituated to people they will eat the fruit (which sellers at the gates pre-prepare for them) from your hands and even climb up you for it if you want to get up close and personal,In the shade of large palms men play cards and families...
