Club Iguana is the Westin Puerto Rico's program for kids, age 4-12, A new kid in town is competing with Club Iguana at The Westin Rio Mar Beach's Club,
"At Club Iguana kids get to have all the fun! Every day, we welcome Westin's young guests age 4 to 12 with activities planned especially for them."

Sensing that Westin missed a lucrative opportunity, Brown & Root, the operators of the 16-and over Camp Delta on Guantanamo, Cuba (just a short military flight from Rio Mar, PR!), have created Camp Iguana, specially designed for kids ages 13-15. While it's admittedly no Westin, if the extreme loyalty of Camp Delta's clientele is any gauge (read my October review), Camp Iguana's operators, Brown and Root, are sure to have a sensation on their hands. When Camp Iguana's normally tight-lipped staff talk about their program, they do so in metaphors that pay homage to Cuba's two national sports, baseball and repression:

[Camp Counselor] Richard Myers: "They may be juveniles, but they're not on a little-league team anywhere, they're on a major league team, and it's a terrorist team. And they're in Guantanamo for a very good reason -- for our safety, for your safety."

[Camp Director] Donald Rumsfeld: "And this constant refrain of 'the juveniles,' as though there's a hundred children in there -- these are not children ... There are plenty of people who have been killed by people who were still in their teens."

Like so many other Caribbean hideaways, Camp Iguana is almost unknown in the US, but Europeans are sure excited about it. So how can your juvenile get a spot? Well, it may sound unfair, but like so much in life, scoring a spot in Camp Iguana depends on attending the right madrassas. Call for reservations.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
