San Ignacio, Belize Iguana Conservation Project

San Ignacio Resort Hotel (not where we stayed) has an Iguana Conservation Project open for tours. We spent an afternoon there visiting the iguanas and then stayed for lunch.

Waiting for the tour. Check out the leaf bug near the ceiling…

We spotted a Golden silk orb-weaver spider along the path. A golden web!

The iguanas scrambled up Jason’s leg to get to the food on his lap and his leg got scratched up. Pants would have been a good idea.

They kept leaping onto the kids from the handrail. Luckily I was tall enough they didn’t jump on me but the kids handled it well. They had so much fun!
