Visited as part of an excursion from our cruise ship. There were a lot of iguana's which was cool. The rest of the park is a bit run down. You can get down to the water with beautiful views. Pretty average attraction.

This was a stop on our recent trip to Roatan, and I was skeptical at first. It turned out to be a great spot to see and interact with hundreds of large green iguanas, and some caged monkeys. Even had a few turkeys scattered around the place. They gave you some large leaves in order to feed these critters, and... More

We stopped here briefly.. and it rained..not their fault. Frankly, it is just a bunch of iguanas on a driveway. For your entrance fee you get to drop a banana on the groumd for them to eat. Meh.

They give you leaves which are the Iguana's favourite food, the animals will come right up and eat the leaves right from your hands. Very cool!

No need to plan to stay a long time just interesting to see and nice that it is there. I was a bit scared at first to walk by the iguanas but they move very slow and they get out of the way.

I loved the iguanas, and they were everywhere. I was afraid to step for fear of landing on a tail! I enjoyed watching people feed them, and getting to go down to the dock and look at the fish was great! I also really enjoyed the handcrafted wood work items for sale in the shop. There were a few items... More

Never saw so many Iguanas in one place and they were very feisty! Had to be careful not to step on their tails, if you did they were docile, only looking for a little food. (they are vegetarians, thank goodness) Mr. Arch has done a wonderful thing saving these animals for us to learn from, pay attention to guide and... More

Nice stop along the way on an island tour - $10.00 admission which is reasonable. Lots of iguanas greet you when you arrive at the park. You are able to feed them and watch them interact - some climb trees as well. There is also a fish sea pond on the grounds with some interesting fish.

We went during a Carnival excursion called "Top 10 Best of Roatan." The iguanas are friendly, and I couldn't believe how many there were. Apparently, certain times of year (I think if it's cool and rainy), they hide. It was neat to see the monkeys close up, but they definitely had small cages. There were huge tarpon in the water....

It is really nice to see and feed the iguanas, which seem well treated as they are free on the property. HOWEVER, it is extremely sad to see the cappucino monkey and the spider monkey confined in their owned small cages. They look both depressed and anxious. When i asked if they were taking out sometimes, i was answered no... More
