Iguanas galore...so many of them. They blend in with nature, so watch out. Do not feed them. There is a church across the street that is being remodeled. Go to the "malecon" afterwards. See the statue of Bolivar and Martin (liberators of South America).

Lots of iguanas just be careful as there are a lot up in the trees and they were peeing quite a lot lol. They seem pretty friendly. There were plenty on site as well as some birds.

Beautiful block in the middle of buildings. Iguanas, turtles, and koi all make a very unique, local visit. Take pictures and then head to The Malecon for more sightseeing and fun.

Nice little park with birds, iguanas and very special old trees! We were very impressed by the type of trees, how they are interconnected.

This one block square park is always busy with both locals and tourists. It features large trees, lots of pigeons, and as you begin to look carefully, hundreds of iguanas. After you see the first one suddenly you see iguanas wherever your eyes turn. People...More

If you have not just returned from Galapagos this park offers your best chance to see land iguanas running free. Pretty, well maintained center city park right at the huge central cathedral which is also worth visiting. Around the corner is the city government complex...More

We visited here as we were staying just opposite. It was great fun for the kids as well as the parents and got us into a good mood for our visit to the Galapagos. Enjoy!

The Iguana park is a must see! After returning from a cruise of the Galapagos Islands I have a new appreciation for the reptiles. The stroll through the park and everyone watches as they slowly go about their day. You are told NOT to feed...More

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
