The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park was opened by Queen Elizabeth herself in 1994, in partnership with the National Trust, to preserve and promote local flora, fauna and wildlife. It is home to the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme, and is the only place in Cayman where you can see these magnificent creatures.
 
The Botanic Park is split into several areas for you to explore. Here are just a few highlights:
 

The Heritage Garden

Showcases the plants and trees that supported early Cayman settlers. There is a medical and sand garden,  old Caymanian house and a cooking Caboose.
 

Woodland Trail

The trail is just under a mile long but takes you through lush natural landscape that is home to 40% of Grand Cayman’s native flora.
 

Lake & Wetlands

Popular with birdwatchers. In cooler months the banks are a lovely spot for a picnic.
 

Colour Garden

A series of gardens arranged by colour, the garden is a year-round explosion of hues. Meander through the trails and end at the gazebo, a favourite for weddings and intimate brunches.
 

Blue Iguana Recovery Programme

Their goal is to increase the population of the endangered creatures to over 1000. You will see these gentle ‘blue dragons’ roaming the park to the delight of residents and visitors alike.

 
If you want to see Blue Iguanas behind the scenes you can join the Blue Iguana Safari Tour which takes place from Monday through Saturday only at 11am. No reservations are required. The tour cost is an additional US$20 and the fee goes directly back into this important recovery program. No tours take place on Sunday.
