Puerto Vallarta Iguanas are HUGE! The first time I came to Vallarta, was 4 years ago. I stayed at the Mayan Palace in the marina. Climbing up the trees, hangin out at the river inside the Mayan, were HUGE Iguanas, they were beautiful. The largest I have ever seen. They were green, some were orange, pretty crazy looking, about the size of a large slender cat, and tails about 4 feet long.
Yesterday I was walking along the river, near the River Cafe downtown, crossing the bridge on Ignacio Vallarta street, just outside the River Cafe there are large trees where these guys also hang out. Any day I walk by, I am guaranteed to see these handsome creatures. I took this shot yesterday. His tail behind the tree trunk, but he was a big one.
I have been told by friends, that sometimes the iguanas hang out on the street, looking for treats, sometimes people feed them. That would be cool to do. You know how they say “stop and smell the roses”, well in Puerto Vallarta, stop and see the wildlife. It is there, just that you have to stop and really look and discover they are there/ Like “finding Waldo”
Have fun on your discoveries, wherever you are.
