Great photo! It would be great if you added the spotting to the "Reptiles of Costa Rica" mission:

I would also say young male iguana, although females might be a little bit more colorful at the beginning.

Thanks a lot bayucca, I was almost sure on Green iguana but this is the first juvenile I see, so I wasn't sure. BTW, I think this is a male (due to the big and ornamented gular fold), am I right? Or does it look the same in females?

Iguana iguana, juvenile. Sometimes they are also called Blue Diamond Iguana. Many juveniles have some nice blue, which they loose again when growing.
