Wonderful organization for a fantastic cause. Located just behind San Ignacio Resort, it caters to education of visitors and refuge for iguanas for extended periods. Lots of interaction & fun as well, a nice add to your time in the area.

Great way to spend an hour learning more about the endangered green iguana, and the efforts being made by the conservation project to protect them. You can actually get up close and touch the ignuanas...let them climb all over you if you wish. Neat experience,...More

You could tell the guide loved the iguanas. Our kids (5 and 7) had the BEST time. We spent an hour feeding and petting the iguanas. It was really cute when you pet their little heads they lean into you like a dog does! Great...More
