If you want to have a little fun, just ask your friends what has three eyes, two penises, and never sweats: the iguanas of enchanting Puerto Vallarta! (Click HERE for more info)
In Puerto Vallarta, iguanas are often used as company logos, in names of establishments such as restaurants, nightclubs, and cantinas, house names, fiesta names, etc., even in the name of a prestigious neighborhood: Isla Iguana, located in the Marina area. They are often the subject of large sand sculptures on the beach in front of the downtown malecon, molded into pottery items, incorporated into all types of paintings, and included in various other forms of art.
Of course, it’s almost impossible to lay on the beach in PV without one of the local boys coming by with his four foot long pet iguana for a photo op! In fact, it was the iguana that put Puerto Vallarta on the international map in 1963 when John Huston filmed "The Night of the Iguana." Ever since then, the iguana (along with its relative, the gecko) has remained one Vallarta’s most recognized symbols.
