Little Water Cay
Experience a wildlife encounter that is more reminiscent of Charles Darwin's voyage than a leisurely Caribbean vacation when you visit Little Water Cay – also known as Iguana Island – and one of the last remaining habitats in Turks & Caicos for the critically endangered rock iguana. The country's iguana population represents one of the last holdouts in the Caribbean, as much of the species has been decimated over the past century through the reduction of habitat and the introduction of species such as dogs and cats into the native population. However, on Little Water Cay things are much more strictly controlled with the entire island being designated as a nature reserve. There is a carefully laid out boardwalk that enables PlanetHoppers! to view the iguanas without adversely impacting the ecosystem. There is a small fee to visit the cay, but the proceeds go toward conserving the island; it's a small price to pay to see these stubborn holdouts from an ancient time.
