Parque de las Iguanas, Guayaquil

(1,700+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
Pay attention as you walk through Parque de las Iguanas, or you might trip over one of the park's namesake lizards. The small square, once the main one in the city, gradually fell into disrepair over the years, until it was essentially taken over by a significant population of iguanas. Nowadays the large reptiles live in harmony with the humans who use the park, even deigning to pose for the occasional touristy photo. Don't worry if an iguana approaches you--it won't bite, and might climb up onto your leg if you're lucky.

  • My little of 2 years 7 months. I am fascinated with as many iguanas on all sides, turtles and pigeons. Indisispensable tourist spot for the local and foreign tourists. My little thought being dinosaurs was fun to see their faces with as much iguana. That there is careful to pass underneath the trees because they make much poop and pee...

  • The iguanas walk among the people, despite being a very natural park and promote respect for animal life, is strange to walk among these animals.

  • It is an obligatory stop in Guayaquil, a very pretty, full of iguanas and exotic animals. WHAT I RECOMMEND 100%!
