If you are traveling with kids, this will be a fun place to visit. Located just on the edge of French Harbour, depending on where you are staying on the island it can be a challenge to get to, but it is worth it. Iguanas, of all sizes, are everywhere. Every time that I have been here, the staff has... More

Having been to the park before we decided to go again and it was a let down. It was raining off and on so it wasn't the fault of the park. Iguanas are cold blooded and head to the trees when it rains looking for warm. If it is a sunny day they will be all over the place. Since... More

The only place that I've been where there are more iguanas than here is the Galapagos. This place has an abundance of them of all sizes. They are all over - on the ground, in the trees, and on the buildings. You can pet them and even pick them up as they are quite harmless creatures. The park also has... More

I knew the iguana farm would be interesting but walking down that slope to be surrounded by so many of them in all sizes was very cool. They gave us leaves to feed them and we loved seeing them climb on each other and chomp away at the greenery. In addition to the iguanas they have some fish and a... More

I had a difficult time choosing between whether this attraction was average or very good. I finally came down on the very good side for a couple of reasons. The iguanas are really pretty neat, and there are a lot of them. They allow you to get up close and personal with them and touch them. Feeding them is also... More

We visited during a port call as an option from our private tour guide. It is vey cool to see iguanas of all shapes and sizes. This is a funs stop. Lots of great picture opportunities. The family loved it. The cost was $10 per person, and was fine for the hour visit. A great time was had by all.

Little iguanas, medium sized iguanas, huge iguanas! Arch, the fellow that got the "iguana farm" started, is still around and he or some of his family will show you the great success they have had helping the iguana population to increase. If you are squeamish about scaly critters don't come here-- iguanas are on the loose everywhere! They are harmless,... More

After reading the other "poor" and "terrible" reviews, I have to say that they are spot on. I don't know how they received all those great reviews. It must be from cruise passengers who are impressed quite easily and have a lot of money to blow. This seems like a family run business and I'm all for supporting that, however,... More

This was a well worth trip to the Iguana park. We were greeted by owner, Sherman and his son, Sherman Jr., and they took us through the park and explained how everything worked. They have over 2500 iguanas, but they can't give you an exact count because they roam around free, but are protected from predators, including humans for iguana... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Arch's Iguana Park. We would have been happy just to see and feed ALL those iguanas but we loved the picturesque setting near the water as well. We learned of many species of fish and saw quite a few lobsters! We spent about 45 minutes there and it was fun and relaxing. We... More
