Green Iguana Conservation Project, San Ignacio
(4.8/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Cayo vacation planner to arrange your visit to Green Iguana Conservation Project and other attractions in Cayo.
