....you can get your fill of iguanas here. They are concentrated near the entrance of the park and don't seem to be evenly throughout the space. They don't seem to be afraid of people. This is a frequent stop for tour buses but doesn't seem...More

There are a number of iquana's living in this park. They seem to be there ready for you to take there pictures. Well kept park that can be enjoyed by all ages.

The iguanas are used to being fed by children...love lettuce and especially bananas. Major fun for children and great photo op!

Excellent distraction right in the heart of the city. Be careful walking under trees, "Something" may drop on you that's not pleasant. Great place to do a lot of 'close-up' photography.

Hundreds of docile but fearsome looking land iguanas roam this small but neatly maintained square in the middle of downtown Guayaquil. For a small amount of change you can feed them cabbage as if they were puppies! The square is nicely situated outside the cathedral...More

There are lots of land iguanas wandering around and there was also a police presence at the gate. However based on guide advice, you probably need to keep your wits about you and watch your valuables.

At least 100 iguanas in this park across from the cathedral in the main plaza. If you like big iguanas, this is the place to go. They are in the trees. I was afraid they would jump down on me. They have the right of...More

Cool park full of iguanas. Just remember they are in the trees too. There were a few unsuspecting tourists who narrowly missed a shower from the iguanas in the trees above them.

Very fun place to see! There were many iguanas everywhere and you could get very close. There were also people feeding them. Good short trip!

I'm not sure if iguanas can be over fed, but since they are vegetarian, if you bring treats, fruits and vegetables are best. The signs do ask that the public not feed them, so I am sure that the iguanas won't mind if you... More
