Mini zoo in a city park.

There was a contest going on, to see how many people could disobey the signs in Spanish that said, "Please don't feed the iguanas." We were unable to tell if the record was being broken, but a significant effort was being made. Our wildlife-loving children would have been horrified, but the iguanas were stuffing themselves with food they never see... More

This is a free site where you can walk around and look at the iguanas that live in the park. Watch out for the ones in the trees, they poop.

In Parque Bolivar you can see 100's of Iguanas wandering about with the locals and tourists. They don't seem to mind all the attention they get and sometimes just seem to pose for pictures. You can feed them as well and you will find them climbing your leg to get food if offered to them. Great for a photo. They... More

There are iguanas everywhere in this small park in the center of Guayaguil. Look in the trees to find them. Nice if youve never seen an iguana but not very special

The iguanas are fun to interact with and to feed. They even climbed onto my son's shoulder! You are not able to touch the iguanas in the Galapagos so it is fun to have the opportunity to touch them at the park in Guayaquil.

It was fun to see the iguanas up close but what was annoying were the people selling. The metro police do kick them out when they come along though

It's amazing that in the middle of this bustling city, there's this open Parque where iguanas are everywhere. They're so accustomed to humans, they walk up to your feet. In the Caribbean, people are a bit too eager to eat them & I was so happy that I could see so many free to go wherever they like. You should... More

Personally I don't like Guayaquil to much so my opinion my be bias. (If you're visiting Ecuador go to Baños de Ambato or Cuenca) The park is good for a stool and some pictures but don't stay out late and use your instincts.

The real name is Parque Seminario, is in the downtown. Just in front of the Catedral. Check some details like the floor and others.
