I agree with Nick. This appears to be a juvenile Ctenosaura similis.

Nick is correct. I can provide juvenile basilisk photos if needed.

Great picture and spotting ! =) Now, if it is a desert iguana as Nick suggests (which it may be) it was definitely lost ;).

This little fellow could be seen every day on a sign which said "No botar basura". It lived inside the red tube you can see in pictures #1 and #2
