Parque de las Iguanas, Guayaquil
(4.1/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The park is a great way to take close pics of the tree iguanas Loved the way the have freedom to walk around & eat & u can take neat close up pics 
  • A very picturesque square, especially with the presence of large number of iguanas, walking freely without scare of human presence, worth knowing this attraction... also is free!
