Bring a few bananas to this beautiful park and you will have many scaly friends running over to you! The huge lizards are very friendly and docile in this park. Beautiful foliage makes for an enjoyable stop.

Watching the iguanas was amazing, they get in use to be fed. Friendly guys! We walk from our hotel The Park Hotel a cozy small 3 stars hotel but the best experience even the coffee is 5 stars. Something important for us!

It's a great little park to sit and watch the iguanas, squirrels, turtles and fish. Right in the middle of downtown. Very pleasant.
