Parque de las Iguanas, Guayaquil

4.0
#1 of 11 in Zoos & Aquariums in Ecuador
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Guayaquil holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parque de las Iguanas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Disappointment for our second visit to the Park! In 2016, the Park was filled with iguanas, now you find more pigeons... Too bad!

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
