This was fun! Eddy (sp?), the director of the iguana project, was a great, informative guide. He taught me a ton about green iguanas and the project in general. I don't think you've lived until you've given a back scratch to an iguana. Or had one on your head. This is a quick must-do if you're in San Ignacio.

This is a great chance to get close to Iguanas and to see them in all stages of aging. Of course, the babies are the cutest.

We were so fascinated and enchanted by the iguanas and Eddie, their keeper and our guide, that we spent much more time with them than was alotted for the tour. It's a wonderful project to preserve the green iguana; we learned a lot and enjoyed it immensely.

The Iguana Conservation Project at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel is a very worthwhile iguana conservation project that raises money for the protection & propagation of the iguana species, while providing a fun experience to the visitor. You get a great deal of knowledge about iguanas, while getting to feed, handle & even 'wear' a number of iguanas. The conservation project is right on the hotel grounds & you can tell that the handlers really care about the iguanas and their preservation. For a small fee, you can help make a difference while at the same time having a real fun experience.

Go and see those lovely iguanas, both the big ones and the tiny babies. You can even pet them. It only takes an hour and you learn a lot about these cool lizards.
