You will learn a lot about the green iguana or "tree chicken" as the locals call them. Short walking distance from town square or right in your backyard if you are staying at the San Ignacio Resort hotel.

Much fun learning about iguanas. Many to hold or pet. A bit pricey for what you get, but all the money goes to iguana conservation.
