Great way to spend an hour of your time! We got to hold the iguanas, feed them with leaves, and hang out with both the older and younger ones as well as a bunch of babies. We had a super friendly guide!

If you want to donate money the the Iguana Project, then go for it! Otherwise you may want to save your money. Kids might like it. It is like a five minute zoo experience. Nice but we could have done without.

This 45 minute tour is one of the many things that you can do while in San Ignacio. A nice experience that you can have with your family once your kids are not afraid of the baby Iguanas.

The tour is a little pricy ($8 USD) for a 45 minute experience but it was a lot of fun to hold and feed all the iguanas. Our guide was very informative and even showed us how to eat some termites!
