About Location
Since 1996, the San Ignacio Resort Hotel has been at the forefront of conservation efforts for the threatened Green Iguana. This informational and educational exhibit has been designed within the property to give visitors a closer look at this amazing reptile and learn how vital they are to the ecological balance of the river habitat. Here, visitors are given the opportunity to learn about the incubation, hatching, rearing, and releasing process of this specie.

The Green Iguana Conservation Project offers the Adopt an Iguana Program which aims to raise funds to sustain the Project and provide scholarships for local children.

Over the years, the Project has received much attention by local and international organizations and continues to be the Number 1 Activity in the San Ignacio.
