Pay attention as you walk through Parque Seminario, or you might trip over one of the park's namesake lizards. The small square, once the main one in the city, gradually fell into disrepair over the years, until it was essentially taken over by a significant population of iguanas. Nowadays the large reptiles live in harmony with the humans who use the park, even deigning to pose for the occasional touristy photo. Don't worry if an iguana approaches you--it won't bite, and might climb up onto your leg if you're lucky. Make Parque Seminario a part of your Guayaquil vacation plans using our Guayaquil trip itinerary planner.

As tourist attractions, no matter how many days you stay in Guayaquil, you must visit Iguana Park. Here you can spend your time among reptiles with tails up to one meter, you can feed them salad... more »
Amazing experience! Definitely a must see! ...Just kidding. Nothing special.
Very nice park in good location. Be warned though that the iguanas can and will pee on you from the trees
