“Cool Iguanas- Watch for Iguana poo poo”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is a must see park in Guayaquil if you dont have time to see iguanas in other parts of the city. Feeding time is interesting because all the iguanas come out of the trees to eat. If it isnt feeding time many of the iguanas are sunning themselves in the trees and will poo-poo on you if you arent careful. I gave only four stars because the turtle pool was close for reconstruction. It is also a great location in front of the Hotel Continental and the main Cathedral.

“iguanas everywhere!!!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This place was very close to the hotel and quite interesting. The iguanas were literally everywhere!!!! it is crazy to have them pay you no mind as they crawl and poop everywhere in this rather small park. They don't leave and seem happy there. I happen to think they were a bit ugly, in that they look like mini dragons!!

“LOVED THE IGUANA PARK!!!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Iguana Park, a small plaza in front of the Guayaquil cathedral, is full of free roaming iguanas that hang out in the trees, sun themselves on the sidewalks and patiently let you touch them. It is obvious they own the place but kindly let us visit. It is downtown, a few blocks from the hotel we stayed at (Hampton Inn) and a few blocks from the Malecon 2000. By far my favorite Guayquil thing to do.
