“What A Cool Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were in Roatan on a dive vacation and couldn't dive the day before flying, so we chartered a day trip with the resort. One of the stops on the trip was Arch's- And Man We Loved IT! I have Never seen so many really big iguanas in one place in my life!!!!! The owners son even let us feed them- and they came running from EVERYWHERE!!!!! The Iguanas are really cool and love to be petted like dogs. The two monkeys were very cute and the larger one also just wanted to be petted and paid attention to! The large Tarpon, Barracuda, Smooth Trunk Fish and Lobsters were also very cool down in the water front pens. We also found the best price on the Island for several Mahogany Boxes we wanted to take back as gifts at the little gift shop here. This place is well worth the trip and is rather amazing!!!! The price of admission is next to nothing and worth every penny!

“Cute little animal park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Lots of animals to see. Two different monkeys, hundreds of iguanas all in one great big iguana pile (you get to feed them if you ask!!!), barracudas, and turtles! There is a little gift shop, too. :)

My only qualm was that the monkeys had very little living spaces for what monkeys need. Still, all of the animals seemed very content.

“UNSANITARY!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The 3000 iguanas that are roaming around the property are extremely unsanitary and the way they feed leaves flies and other insects as well.

“Very fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by during an island tour. There were iguanas everywhere!! There were also monkeys, parrots, turtles, and a fenced in area with large tarpon and other fish. The view of the reef was spectacular. We were able to talk with Mr. Arch, who was very entertaining. My 4 year old son loved every minute of the farm.

“So Many Iguanas, Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Every time we visit Roatan we find time to visit Arch's Iguana and Marine Park. Don't rush through the park and try to find the time to talk with the owners. They are extremely pleasant and will go out of their way to make sure that you not only learn something, but that you have a wonderful experience. Say hi to Sherman for us!
