Mona Island is home to the Mona Iguana – a 4-foot-long scaly creature found nowhere else in the world. But don’t let the iguana scare you away from Mona, it’s a harmless vegetarian. Mona Island is located in the strait between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico and because of its rugged terrain and wildlife, the island has been called the Galapagos Islands of the Caribbean. Caves, cliffs and coral reefs make Mona Island a great place for water sports, especially snorkeling. And for the nature lover, this uninhabited island is also a reserve for the conservation of sea turtles.
