On approximately 12 acres, over 4,000 iguanas roam freely in a protected haven.  You can get up close and personal with a numerous species included Green Iguanas and Hammo Negro Iguanas as well as Monkey Lalas, Jesus and Blue Head lizards. 

Visitors can pet and feed the friendly reptiles and feeding time (early afternoon) is one of the best times to to handle the iguanas. Each year, iguanas are released into the wild, helping to maintain the native reptile's population on the island.

Other creatures lving onsite include monkeys, rescued sea turtles, and tarpon fish.

I just got home from a Cruse to Cozumel. We took an excursion to the Maya Ruins of Tulum. They were beautiful sitting on the coast of Mainland Mexico. What I wanted to say was there were Iguana everywhere. There had to be hundreds around the site. That was kind of cool in itself. Not to mention the history of the Maya.

I love lizards of any size, but the bigger the better! When we travel, I will look at the iguanas more than the sites we paid to see. :D

I hope you enjoyed your cruise!
