“Blooming iguanas!”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

The gardens are a lovely, tranquil oasis with many exotic species of plants to view as you wander the paths. We also got very close views of three resident blue iguanas, native to Grand Cayman and a protected species. The garden staff were very knowledgeable about all of the vegetation and wildlife on display. A great 2 hour visit.

“See the Blue Iguanas”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

The botanic garden is worth a one to two hour visit on its own, but the guided tour of the blue iguana facility (which is a separate fee) is quite an experience. There is a good chance of seeing blue iguanas roaming in the park, especially when its warm, but the tour will take you into the facility where the iguanas are bred.

Information on the blue iguana safari is available at: www.blueiguana.ky.

If you plan on going on the tour, which starts at 11am, be sure to call ahead, as they occasionally have private groups.

“Great Photo Op!”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

This is a spectacular way to explore Grand Cayman's natural beauty. Wild flowers, orchids, palm trees and iguanas abound on the self-guided walking tour. There are benches scattered along the way for you to pause and take in the many interesting and picturesque setting.

“Great place to see the blue iguanas”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Great place to see the blue iguanas that are being bred there and are free to roam around the park. Hopefully they will be able to reintroduce them into the wild to build up the 30 or so that they believe is the remaining wild population.

The rest of the park is quite interesting, a little lacking in signs and directions, but a nice place to while away a few hours between diving and chilling on the beach.

“Animals”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Saw 4 iguanas and 6 parrots. Lots of pretty plants. Saw a hermit crab and turtle as well. For only 10 bucks well worth it.
