Going On a Journey ... One Click at a Time
Welcome to the Iguana Park in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Parque Seminario (Iguana Park) is located across the street from the hotel where we stayed overnight, Unipark Hotel. The hotel staff offered to give us lettuce in order to feed the Iguanas. We declined that opportunity and simply enjoyed walking around this beautiful park ... which serves as the home to a great number of Iguanas. The Iguanas are on the ground, on rocks, in rocks, and in the trees. They show no aggression at all and are adapted very well to human beings walking around them. The Iguanas were long ago attracted to this area due to the fruits from the mangrove and willow trees, as well as the river nearby. They simply grew in numbers and have made this park their habitat for many years.
