What a beautiful country with such friendly people! Ron was a great tour guide - he took us to the View, to a chocolate factory and then to Gumbalimba park. At the park we were delighted to see free range animals that were there because they felt safe and fed there but were free to come and go. The macaws were gorgeous, the iguanas fat and happy and best of all the white-face capuchins were amazing. We stayed and played with them for quite some time - never felt rushed. We had the beach to ourselves and the grounds are immaculate. This was an amazing day and we plan to return.

Great day
Feb. 2020
Booked via tripadvisor and was looking forward to trip. On the Saturday we boarded our NCL ship to discover that they changed the day of our visit to Routan. I emailed the company and got a quick reply that it was ok. On exiting the ship we followed the instructions and quickly meet the Anderson rep. He give us over to s taxi driver who could not take us direct to Gumbalimba as it does not open til 9. He took us to overlook the ship and a chocolate factory. There was no pressure to buy. We then had a lovely time at Gumbalimba but could not use the beach as it was very stormy. Our driver took us to the other side of the island were the sea was calm and we spent a few hours at a resort. He took us back to boat, Could not fault the service, over and above what we expected.

Not What I expected
Feb. 2020
I thought this would be more of a casual walk around the park. Our guide actually had us move from one area to another rather quickly. The Macaws were nice to see, but all just seemed to be a photo op. Same for the monkeys, they were very cute and obviously very use to human interaction, Was disappointed with the "insectatorium" as it was all dead mounted examples. Never did make it to the reptile exhibit? The bus going to the park was incredibly compact, if your taller the 5'3" you'll find yourself cramped.

Wonderful shore excursion!
Dec. 2019 • Couples
This tour is offered by Royal Caribbean and well worth taking! My only complaint would be that the bus was extremely compact. The middle aisle was so tight that it was hard to squeeze through. Our driver provided us with bottles of cold water and our guide was a fun, cool guy who spoke great English. He generously provided lots of information about the island of Roatan on the 40 minute drive. The privately funded Gumbalimba sanctuary was just amazing! We got to try a freshly picked star fruit and see a large variety of insects, spiders and butterflies displayed in the insectarium. There was a hummingbird garden and a sloth hanging from a tree. After bravely walking across a swinging bamboo bridge, we had lots of fun seeing various parrots, a Toucan, some type of large rodent and lots of Capuchin monkeys. Animal trainers facilitated safe photo opportunities but the monkeys also jumped from person to person on their own. The 1.5 hr walk flew by. Afterwards we were able to spend time at the nearby beach (complimentary lounge chairs) and take any shuttle back to the port. Awesome!

Best Excursion EVER!!!!
Dec. 2019 • Family
What can I truly say, of our 7 days cruise our excursion at the Gumbalimba preservation was the BEST excursion on the whole trip. The park was absolutely beautiful (am coming back for the parrot that took the button off my polo hat lol). The excursion was nice but our trip was memorable because of our driver/tour guide Steven! He's warm, friendly, knowledgeable and funny, my family absolutely LOVED him. He took us to coco factory, rum tasting factory, and a local restaurant for some authentic food. Steven captured moments of our trip that my husband and I missed and for that we are grateful. Thank you Steven for a AMAZING experience!

We had a terrific time at the park. The Macaws were amazing but seeing the monkeys was even better. The monkeys are so soft and jump from one person to another eating their sunflower seeds.
The beach at Tabyana is very relaxing.
Highly recommend this tour.

Macaws and Monkeys!
Sep. 2019 • Friends
A Rainy Sunday morning walk from the beach made us the first ones there! Allen, our guide was very knowledgeable identifying all the plants, trees, animals, but best of all he shared so many funny stories! We laughed all morning! After crossing the rope bridge the beautiful birds appeared! The trainers put them on our shoulders allowing plenty of time for photos! The monkeys are so cute and friendly but watch out, they are pick pockets! Lol! Great park with great guides! Get there if you can!

Gumbalimba Park - Yes!
Sep. 2019
We did this from the Symphony of the Seas and enjoyed it very much! Lots of free flying birds and nature to see. Channel and Jacky were very good guides. The monkey and Macaw interactions were great! Listen to the guides and be respectful of the animals. We swam at the end and the water was beautiful. The gift shop was very nice - bought some coffee and a pretty blouse. There is a walk around for the suspension bridge so don't let that keep you away. I would love to go back.

When I visited Roatan we went on a snorkeling excursion. I remember it so vividly because it was one of the best experiences on the trip, made in part by our guide Erwin Hamilton. Thanks so much Erwin and everyone else who made our trip memorable!
