The program serves to educate people about the animals and prevent them from being hunted for food. Take the short, scenic trail down to the iguana center with the hotel guide, spot medicinal herbs and trees, or try eating termites from a termite mound. Meet the resident iguanas, learn about their behavior, feed and hold them, or take a photo with them as a souvenir.
