A staple of the island … iguanas running around under your feet. During one visit, one even ended up on my chair, as I was lowering myself to sit.
The children delight in staring at the iguanas, or running after it, trying to pet it or pick it up. Some know that if you pull off a piece of their tail that it will grow back again.
Sadly, this year, we didn’t see so many as before. Even the old ‘Grandpa Iguana’ that we saw in previous years was nowhere to be found.
I don’t know if they had made an effort to limit the number running around by the pool area and the hotel, or if they ended up as iguana soup in some kitchen …
