If you're in Manzanillo and have an hour or two this is easy and a lot of fun. It is funky as many things in Mexico are but you'll never see more iguanas. We had a car to get there but asking a taxi to...More
Simply not worth the time and effort to get there. It's literally a backyard with lots of iguanas hiding in the trees. Only worth it if you get there at feeding time and that is never regular. Our lizard loving kids didn't find it very...More
I have heard lots of rave reviews of this place but I was disappointed and not happy with the enclosures (especially of the birds). They are small and dirty. To see all the iguanas together is something but I would rather take a boat ride...More
A great experience. I approached the entrance with trepidation, having seen dozens of iguanas in the trees from the street. The iguanas of all sizes are not enclosed but roaming freely, everywhere. They were well behaved and stayed behind the single rope that separates the...More
A simple but interesting place to visit to see all sizes of Iguanas up close and in the trees. Other animals present as well. The owner is doing a great job in creating this refuge for iguanas and other animals. Difficult to get to but...More
Boy, this is a tough one. The overflowing army of iguanas, who apparently live in the trees because they are fed, was a site to behold - in fact it was one of my granddaughters trip highlights. They seem prehistoric and and actually fascinating to...More
Our friend took us to see the Iguanas. No cost to go inside but a donation is appreciated. I missed the hundreds at feeding time but there were still many around when I was there. For a peso you can feed an iguana a banana...More
People expecting pristine zoos will be disappointed, but those who care to get up close and personal with HUNDREDS of iguanas will be pleased. No admission charge, just a donation box ... and 5 pesos if you want to hand-feed a lizard a banana.
You can walk, it is about one kilometer or 1/2 mile. The walk will take you through the main downtown shopping. If you take a taxi, don't get in unless the taxi driver agrees to a fare of 30 pesos or less. The santuary is at... More
You can walk, it is about one kilometer or 1/2 mile. The walk will take you through the main downtown shopping. If you take a taxi, don't get in unless the taxi driver agrees to a fare of 30 pesos or less. The santuary is at most a 30 minute visit, and donations are not mandatory, but the funds help feed the hundreds if animals.
If I can make a suggestion, take in the iguanas. Offer a taxi driver $150 pesos to take you there and wait. Then drive you to las Brisas. In las Brisas there is a restaurant on the beach called Rock Food. You can have drinks and appies on the beach. You will be able to see your cruise ship on the other side of the bay. It is a beutiful beach. The drive back is only 15-20 minutes and the fare should only be 70 pesos at most( $4.00 usd).
The taxi drivers will try to get more if they know you are on the cruise ship. If you want a waiter will negotiate a fair fare🤓.
Bring towels from the ship. The water is safe at that part of the bay.

The actual address is 521 Calle 21 de Marzo. However, Calle 21 de Marzo appears to become a back alley in this particular block, not accessible by car, but on foot it is okay. It would be better to go one block west to Fracisco I. Madero and turn south and look for the Club de Leones. The Iguanario is just south of the Club and can be accessed through a small unpaved parking area. Hope this helps.
