The ziplining at the park was a lot of fun and very scenic. The staff was very nice and made the experience fun by offering to do different tricks. We also went on a tour of the park - my favourites were interacting with the birds and monkeys. The monkeys are adorable, playful and jump onto you. We went later... More

We were staying in West Bay and invited my in-laws (mainland Hondurans) to go to Gumbalimba Park. It was difficult to get any information regarding hours/fees, the website hasn't been updated since 2011, and when I called the number a couple of times the calls wouldn't go through. A tour guide in West Bay called for me and gave me... More

The safety line procedures of the zipline were great since I let 5 of my kids ride...then I followed. The park was very fun and informative. The encounters with the macaws and the capuchins were fun for the kids and very photogenic.

My hubby and I visited along with our 19 & 21 year old son & daughter. We booked through Carnival Cruise line (we were on the Liberty). Roatan in general is lush forestry and just absolutely beautiful (& clean). The drive from the port in the tour bus (an air conditioned minivan) wasn't long and the scenery on the way... More

We took this day trip from our Carnival cruise. There's a 40 minute air conditioned bus ride from the dock to the park, but it was nice to see some of the real island. The trip started out with a clear-bottom kayak trip. We took a 15 minute break on the beach and then kayaked back to the starting point.... More

Gumbalimba Park on Roratan island Honduras is a place of raw natural beauty. Shaded easily walkable trails, waterfalls, a bird sanctuary (scarlet and green macaws), a pirates cave (Coxen's Cove) and a long suspension bridge (only 5 people at a time cross) and white faced Capuchin Monkeys that will sit on your head and shoulders, as well as zip lining...

My 12 year old children and I went here for a day shore excursion from our cruise. We were very satisfied with the place. We got to see a ton of iguanas, macaws, and monkeys. It was fun to have the monkeys sit on our shoulders. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the island. After our "monkey tour", we did... More

While staying on Roatan, my wife and I decided to take a trip to Gumbalimba, mainly to see the monkeys. We went on a day there were no cruise ships and went early. We were the only tourists in the park until about the time we left. You start with a "pirate cave" which is kind of a Disney World... More

This park, including the zipline, felt like a very contained and safe experience. Everyone was so gracious. Though the monkeys are not native to the island, they were a ton of fun to hang out with and we had a wonderful time!
