Belize Iguana Project - San Ignacio Resort Hotel Reviews
Playing with Ignuana's Oct 22, 2013
For $9 each, you can learn about Green Iguanas, feed them, hold them, and let them crawl all over you. We had a little time in the morning, so we decided to check them out.
We first got an introduction to the project and why they are doing it (pretty noble). They hatch green iguanas, protect them, let them grow up to a certain size, then release them into the wild. They are hunted in Belize, especially the females. The eggs are a delicacy and they are only good if they are still in the iguana.
After learning of the project, we were led into the cage where we got to play, feed, and interact with the iguanas. We also got to do this with the babies.
