We had an excellent visit to the sanctuary. The guide was excellent, gave us lots of information and answered all questions. I learned a lot and was able to hold an iguana and feed others. I highly recommend it.

Guide was knowledgeable and personable, allowing us to handle male and female iguanas. Project is located in an enclosure behind the resort, no nature tour to see them in the wild that we are aware of.
