It just so happened that my hotel was located adjacent Parque Seminario, also known as Iguana Park on account of the land iguanas that hang out there.

The idea of giant lizards hanging out in an urban park struck me as odd, and piqued my curiosity.

It’s as surreal in person as it sounds. Giant land iguanas mingling with pigeons. Being fed by locals and tourists alike, and lounging in the grass.

During your visit, you can also take a peek inside a large cathedral opposite one side of the park.
