You literally get up close and personal with the iguanas and learn a great deal about them from the knowledgeable and friendly guide. It is a great opportunity to learn about the wildlife of Belize and support an important conservation program at the same time. Truly a "must see" if you are in San Ignacio.

This is a great place to go and doesn't take a ton of time. Honestly, we could have hung out all day with the iguanas. It is a guided tour that starts at the top of the hour. Our guide was knowledgeable and we really enjoyed feeding the iguanas lettuce and being able to hold them. The kids loved it. If you are in San Ignacio, it is worth the time.

How cool to have been able to pet and feed the iguanas. Staff was very knowledgeable. Made me feel good to support this worthy cause.

This is a great project which is doing a lot of good and helping the iguana. It was neat to be able to see all the iguanas up close and of course the photos with them is good fun too. But learning more about the species and what this project does is quite interesting and worthwhile. We did the medicinal trail afterwards which was also very informative with a lot of plants to see and signs. Some great birding on the trail and at the resort too!

Went there and had a very interesting half an hour. Allowed to touch and feed iguanas. It is a good way to put some money back into the country
