What’s blue, rare and very Cayman?

Any visit to Grand Cayman is not complete unless you meet these amazing creatures. Grand Cayman’s blue iguanas are four to five feet long, and with their fabulous blue skin and red eyes you could mistake them for tiny dragons.

Grand Cayman is the only natural home to these rare and beautiful reptiles. In the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, on Grand Cayman, you can see blue iguanas roaming free on the trails. You can also take a peek behind the scenes of the internationally acclaimed captive breeding facility that has helped save them from extinction.

Tours of the breeding facility take place daily (except Sundays) at 10am and 11am. Visitors wishing to take part in a tour should make their way to Visitor Centre of the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park in good time for a prompt start. The park is around a 45-minute drive from George Town and tours cost CI$24 (£20) which includes entrance to the park. All profits benefit the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme.
