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

Wow! What a unique experience. As others have said, I have never seen so many iguanas in one place, let alone really big iguanas. They are loose and apparently come each day to the grounds to hang out an be fed, and then return the jungle by night. Carefully, you can feed them fruit, scratch their sides, and have them... More

I have never seen so many iguanas in my life. They allowed you to feed them. The place is really cool for kids and adults. They have monkeys and the marine life on the wharf was awesome. I highly recommend you do this on your trip to Roatan.

If you want the real experience of Roatan, visit Arch's place. Yeah, sure, the iguanas are cool and so are the random monkeys and birds. But if you really want to see something amazing, pay them an extra $30 and ask Sherman or one of his sons to take you out on their boat, and to tell you the story... More
