This is quite a park! Officially known as Seminario Park, it is most famous for all the iguanas there. Look where you are walking, as they blend in with the grass and walkway... and don't forget to look UP! Yes, iguanas are in trees, and they will... well, you know... There is a sculpture of boars fighting in the park,... More

Right in the center of town, we found a small park all but over-run by iguanas. By all means take a few minutes out during your tour of the city to experience this.

An iguana park. Ok. I've been to dog parks. Why not iguanas? In this poor and hot city, a park for iguanas. We managed to be there for feeding time and participated. What fun.

These iguanas rule the park. They are docile, at least to humans. People feed them, they respond like pets! They love to sleep in the trees....what a hoot! We did watch one iguana wrestle another right into the pond! What a strange place - especially after visiting the Galapagos where they tell us to stay at least 6 feet away... More

This was the highlight of our 1 night stay in Guayaquil - seeing all those Iguanas was a fun way to start our trip after nearly a full day of traveling. The park is pretty lively and there were a lot of people even though it was overcast. Stop by, even if just to walk through - though you'll be... More

The main attraction of this small park in front of the Cathedral is the bunch of iguanas just sitting and walking around there. A great opportinuty to make some great pictures, and the longer you look, the more you will see, especially on the trees. Don't miss it!

In front of the cathedral there is a small park, full off Iguanas. If you visit this park in the morning you will see them eating there fresh breakfast. They walk around and are climbing out of the trees. They have many different colours. Dont forget to visit the cathedral. In the park are security people.

You really know you're in Ecuador when you see the iguanas everywhere (as well as a few turtles) in this small park.

You have never seen so many iguanas! Even if you are going to the Galapagos - these are different and beautifully colored. Watch them eat lettuce out of the feeder's hands!
