I recommend doing ziplining and the park tour on a Monday or Tuesday, when there cruise ships are not in town. Our tour guide said on the other days there are hundreds of people, whereas the park was relatively empty for our tour. The ziplining was super fun (great guides!!) and the park was definitely worth it. We held monkeys,... More

We were picked up from our resort on a bus and taken to the park. Then from there we were guided on a tour of the park by William who was very friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. He brought us into the insectarium, cave (history of Roatan), and the parrots where we were able to have pictures with the parrot on... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable. He kept us very well informed. Holding the parrots was pretty cool. The highlight was definitely holding the monkeys! They called them by name, and they cam swinging in from the jungle. Loved It!

This park is a wonderful place for young and old alike. So much to see and do. Lots of history and nature provided in the guided tours which last a couple of hours. The highlight is interacting with the parrots and monkeys at the end of the tour. This is a very rustic park, not a lot of places to... More

I highly recommend this beautiful park. It has a lovely lake,suspension bridge and the animals are all so beautiful and most are friendly and just want to make friends. The plants are gorgeous too. I feel like Tarzan could swing by at any moment. the walking trails are pretty and cool. Enjoy.

Took this excursion as part of a cruise. Great park. Iguanas, monkeys, who could ask for anything more. Great beach as well. Wish we had more time to spend

My daughter and I were there in April. We had a wonderful guide--and EVERYONE was very kind and helpful. I don't know how anyone could not enjoy this park. The monkeys are NOT in cages--and do enjoy stealing, for sure. The beach was very nice and clean. There were people selling home made things--at very reasonable prices. WE LOVED IT.

The way to Gumbalimba was quite an eye opener. You will see the poverty many Honduran's live in. Here and there you see half built homes with people staring straight out of them. The roads were okay but no one seemed to really pay attention to any laws, maybe they are unspoken. The Gumbalimba Park was quiet and clean. Not... More

First off, the only reason I gave Gumbalimba Park less than 5 stars is due to the higher cost. You have the option of doing just the park which includes seeing monkeys, iguanas, macaws and a few other jungle residents as well as the beach, a pool and onsite restaurant, or also adding the zip lining. We did just the... More
