The Iguana Park is fun to walk around for about 20 minutes but there isn't much to see. The iguanas are absolutely everywhere there has to be at least 100 of them. They are on the ground, in the bushes, climbing the trees; it's insane. Probably worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood but I wouldn't go out of... More

I think is good to see a lot "iguanas", but the are too many in a little park. I personally, don't like to see the animals with not water and not food in a dirty and smelling place.

This park was only a stone's throw away from our hotel. We visited on a Sunday afternoon when it was full of locals and their kids enjoying the balmy weather. The iguanas were an impressive size...a couple of them were up a tree, others clearly visible at ground level and two kept everyone amused by mating in front of the... More

Iguanas are all over the park. They are next to the fish pond. But since they are vegetarians, the fishes are safe. When I was there visiting, I saw a dad with his little boy pulling, I mean really yanking the tail of one iguana. If you visit, I ask that you do not do this. They are beautiful creatures... More

If you are scared of a small gecko, this park is NOT for you. The iguana are HUGE and they are EVERYWHERE. The people (yes even the children) pet them, touch them, feed them (and there's a nice woman who sells bags of lettuce for .50 so you can too) and they are running around chasing you if you have...

The first time I visited Parque de las Iguanas was in 2012. I returned to Guayaquil again in 2015 to find that is still the same quiet clean park it was 3 years ago. Located right across from the Cathedral and within walking distance of most places downtown. The best way to get here if you are staying out of... More

This is a nice park across the street from the Cathedral in a city square. There are many iguanas on the grass and in the trees. Their movements are entertaining to watch and they pose for great pictures.
