Visit the San Ignacio Hotel to meet the lizards of Green Iguana Conservation Project. Set in a lush part of jungle near the Macal River, the hotel houses a project for conservation and protection of green iguanas. The program serves to educate people about the animals and prevent them from being hunted for food. Take the short, scenic trail down to the iguana center with the hotel guide, spot medicinal herbs and trees, or try eating termites from a termite mound. Meet the resident iguanas, learn about their behavior, feed and hold them, or take a photo with them as a souvenir.

  • While no agency don't had discussed us it, we found this site through trip advisor reviews. Well hidden from the San Ignacio Resort (you can barely see the pub at the entrance of the hotel), it will take to carry out US $9 per person which will go directly to help the operation of this reserve. Once inside, this will remain a moment etched in our memories. Surrounded by dozens of iguanas, they we go up, we can wear them, feed them and learn a lot about their lifestyle. A must if you go to San Ignacio.
