This was a small, but very cool, iguana project. You got up close and personal with the iguanas and the guide was very informative. I held and fed many of them. We had a blast.

We stayed at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel for 5 days/4 nights and this is one of the things you have to do. It costs $9 US but it is totally worth it. It's a great cause, most of the iguanas are rescue reptiles so...More
