Wanted to see a Blue Iguana and this is really the only place you can see them, they're very beautiful and well worth seeing, the guide is very informative and we learnt a lot. Definitely worth a visit.

This is the only way to really see the iguanas and learn about them. Yes, there are iguanas roaming the park, but you will need to get lucky. Otherwise there are only some very small windows in a fence to look at enclosures to see...More

We only saw a couple of iguanas. We didn't know they only did the tour of iguana pins once a day, so we missed it and just walked through the area. Not much to see. We see 3 iguanas on our walk. Wish we would...More

They were not blue the day we went on the tour, the cages and conditions of the breeding program area were not the most desirable. The guide was great, the idea of a re populating breeding program great, but for the price the tour was...More

Folks here are really knowledgeable about the blue iguana. They are working hard to bring back this incredible animal. Visiting them helps support their efforts.

Just over an hour tour. Perfect amount of time to visit with Iguanas. The gardens are nice to walk through as well. Arrive before 11am, as that is their only daily tour.

We had a personal tour of this breeding center by very friendly staff. We could handle and feed both the breeding and juvenile iguanas. Worth a visit to see the native animals of Grand Cayman and it is a change to the coast and beach

Try asking if the city bus goes out there. The buses do not have "bus stops" beyond downtown, just stand on the shoulder of the road and give the driver a wavy and they will pick you up.
