Crested anoles are native to neotropical areas, such as Puerto Rico (including the islands of Vieques, Culebra) and islands in the Caribbean (Anegada, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, St. John, and St. Thomas). They are also considered to be an introduced species in Florida, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. It is uncertain exactly when this species was introduced into these areas, although there is some consensus that the crested anole was introduced into La Romana (Dominican Republic) before 1920.
