Get up close and personal with iguanas of all sizes in this great conservancy project. The guide was so enthusiastic and we had unexpected ability to handle iguanas from large to very small. Great for all ages. Be advised, think about what you’re wearing as they will climb!

It was really cool. The guide walked us through step by step. Explaining from there eggs to full grown iguana's. My wife and I took our granddaughter and we loved it.
We were able to hold and feed the Iguana's. The babies were the best the jump and crawl all over you. A fun time !

This is a very interesting stop during our stay in San Ignacio. We learned about the natural life cycle of an iguana, and even got to hold them. I highly recommend it!

This is a quick tour of iguanas where you get into their massive cage with them. You are able to touch and pet them. Holding baby iguanas was great. They like to run to the top of your head. Certainly worth the few bucks to go.

We stayed at the San Ignacio resort and stopped by the iguana experience before leaving. This is a fun family activity, and we learned a lot about iguanas and conservation efforts in Belize. We even got to hold baby iguanas! It's a great, hour-long activity while in San Ignacio.

We were very happy to learn that their mission is to protect local iguanas from hunting and killing for eggs. By protecting them and educating us they protect the balance of nature and these beautiful creatures. Nigel is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to taking care of his injured iguanas and babies born in captivity. Except for the permanently injured they are all released 1-5 years back in the wild. Awesome!

This was such a treat! We didn't know what to expect going into it, but we had such a wonderful time with Nigel who showed us the iguanas and had all kinds of information about their stories and iguanas in general. We were able to hold the iguanas, and we even got to hold a bunch of baby iguanas that were totally adorable. If you go to San Ignacio, this is definitely a must!

My 9 year old grand daughter loved this place. Its worth a visit if you have young kids or if you like iguanas. By going here you also are supporting a good cause.
