Green Iguana Exhibit & Medicinal Jungle Trail information
On the lush Macal Valley grounds of the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, this program collects and hatches iguana eggs, raising the reptiles until they are past their most vulnerable age. The iguanas are then released into the wild, but not before giving guests a chance to get to know them. You'll get plenty of face time (and photo ops), as well as fun facts about iguanas. On the way back from the exhibit, learn about local herbs and plants on the medicinal jungle trail that winds through the forest.
