Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, Grand Cayman
(3.9/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Spot remarkable blue lizards as you stroll along winding paths at Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park. Take the trail that circumnavigates the park and keep an eye out for rare, striking blue iguanas, who wander through the gardens in all their iridescent glory. Almost extinct 20 years ago, the iguanas now thrive in the gardens thanks to a project to restore their population to safe numbers. As you meander through the colorful gardens, stop at the lake to admire rare aquatic birds, native to the region. After all that, grab some refreshments at the tea rooms and take in the wonderful park views. Put Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and other North Side attractions into our North Side itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • If you are going for the famed Cayman Blue Iguanas, you're going to be disappointed. Due to their dwindling populations, these beauties are being kept in captivity. You can pay extra for a special tou...  more »

  • Nice, quaint and small garden. Love spotting the blue iguana. They had berries you could eat from the trees. Great staff.
  • Bring your bug spray, everything else was great.
  • We saw 2 blue iguanas that were difficult to see behind a wooden fence and through plastic partitions. We saw another 1 in the orchid area just sitting on a tree. Employees were very friendly. It's a pleasant place to walk around for an hour or 2, and then head to Rum Point for lunch.
  • Would highly recommend seeing the blue iguanas! Although I had a unpleasant experiance with one of the workers. The rest of the workers were very pleasant.
  • They saw they have hundreds of blue iguanas, but we only saw 3 laying down behind a wood enclosed with small glass windows to look through. Very disappointing. Don't waste your money unless you go to see a garden.
