Nice park, safe and right in front of the cathedral and surrounded by a few nice hotels. Close by malecón area and city hall

The park is next to the cathedral. Iguanas just laying around everywhere. Tons of pigeons too. Take a 10 minute stroll in this small park to see a genuine part of Ecuador.

This is a popular park in Guayaquil- the Iguanas are apparently very happy here as they grow very big. They lay their eggs all in one place and the infertile females destroy most of the eggs out of jealousy so that keeps the population down(this...More

This park was fun. At first we didn't see the iguanas, and then we realized they were everywhere. A must see if you go to Guayaquil.

This is a small park in Guayaquil populated by Iguanas that are friendly and used with visitors. One can go near the iguanas or even touch them and they stay put. It is like you enter the Iguanas world!

If you have kids and visit Guayaquil this is worth it! You get real close to the iguanas. There are plenty of police and guard presence so it is fairly safe spot. You are not safe from iguana and pigeon droppings however.

Small garden plaza with dozens of land iguanas. Worth a quick 15 -30 minute stop to check out the iguanas.

Fun for both kids and grownups. The iguanas ate out of the same food source without fighting. The birds hopped around the iguanas without either being aggressive. A pond with fish added to the attraction. Nice place to just sit and relax.

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
