Hi Cosmin,
It seems to be a Norops sp. (syn. Anolis).
Maybe Norops fuscoauratus (http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?stat=BROWSE&where-lifeform=Reptile&where-taxon=Anolis+fuscoauratus&title_tag=Anolis+fuscoauratus) ?

Thanks Olivier!
Studying more and more your website and is great.
Only reptiles (herps in general) seen when I was there. And between where are alos Ameiva ameiva (and each day said that will photo tomorrow and ended without :( ) and  big like Varanus lizzard (one day even catched one of those big Ameiva lizzard). I was without camera at that moment :( .

The Varanus-like lizard was either an iguana (Iguana iguana) or a common tegu (Tupinambis teguixin).

Hope to see more of your beautiful photos in 2017!

Cheers, Auke

Tegu was ... iguana is excluded also because I know it but also because is mainly an herbivore animal.
