Green Iguana Conservation Project  PhotoGreen Iguana Conservation Project  Photo

Located on-site, the Green Iguana Conservation Project is an interactive exhibit located at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel that gives visitors a closer look at the life of Green Iguanas. The venture aims to conserve and look after the endangered species by educating the public about the role Green Iguanas play in the ecosystem.

Since 1996, the Green Iguana Conservation Project has placed continuous efforts and interactive exhibits to educate the general public and create awareness. Here, visitors of all ages are given the opportunity to mingle with these wonderful reptiles and also, learn about the incubation, hatching, rearing, and releasing process. The self-sustained Project has won both local and international attention by introducing the “Adopt an Iguana Program” and the “Iguana Kids Club”—two programs that aim to foster relationships between the species and visitors and additionally, fund scholarships. As a result, over the past years the Green Iguana Conservation Project has been ranked the #1 Activity in the San Ignacio area and awarded with the Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.
