Our family did the tour and enjoyed learning a bit more about the Green Iguana Conservation Project. We had fun holding the iguanas, observing their behaviors, and learning new information about the animals.

This is a very worthwhile project which the staff members are enthusiastic about. The proximity that you can get to the iguanas is unreal and it was a real treat to see this.

We loved it - ate termites - not mandatory so don't worry and had several iguanas crawl on us. Great photo ops. Nigel is also awesome and is one of the guides. He is very informative and really loves his job
