No indigenous creature is better loved in the Cayman Islands than the rare Blue Iguanas – they even have their own pedestrian crossings, so drive carefully. Better still, take a Blue Iguana Safari round Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and meet the adorable little dragons in their natural habitat.
Conservationists have been working tirelessly here for almost 30 years to re-establish the iguana population and it’s a great success story. Kids will learn all about the breeding programme and reintroducing young reptiles back into the wild. But the real magic lies in spotting the dazzling reptiles themselves and, when that happens, grown-ups should expect to feel high levels of child-like excitement too.
