We stop at Arch's to see the iguanas on every visit to Roatan, often taking bananas with us. Arch's isn't anything fancy so don't expect any sort of modern zoo. Our daughter enjoys seeing the fish in the enclosed pen "catch" the fish that's thrown out to them.

Located on the outer edge of French Harbor, you'll need to pay close attention for signs if you are not with a driver or tour. Once you find it, you'll be amazed at how many iguanas you will start to see as you pull in and park. But wait, you haven't made it down the ramp or stairs, where you'll... More

We fed the iguanas and there were lots of them. Seeing the tarpon as they fed them was great. Well worth the price.

Our resort, Coco View, took us here as a part of a day trip. I got to pet the Iguana's and feed them. It was really cool. Plus there is a Monkey that is very friendly and loved his back scratched. It was a hoot. The gift shop also had some great prices on souvenirs.

My family and I went to the park to check out the iguanas. I have heard about the farm for years and decided this trip we would go check it out. From the time you make the turn off the main road you start to see iguanas. As you park you are amazed the the iguanas are just hanging out... More

Being from the US, iguanas are not something we see running around free. Very cool place to visit. Thousands of iguanas running free in trees and around on the ground. This was part of our tour from Roatan Ocean Adventures. Very glad it was. They let you feed the iguanas as well.

We avoid, wildlife parks, zoos etc. as we do not like to see captive wildlife. So it was with trepidation we visited this place, then only as it was labelled a sanctuary. All the Iguanas are free to wander and leave if they so wish, but stay they do, as it gives them a safe refuge on this developing island... More

We stopped by on a Sunday, not knowing that the park was closed on Sundays. However, Mr Sherman Arch was kind enough to show us around, let us feed the iguanas and give us an education about their life, habitat, breeding and conservation. The government of Honduras does not help protect the iguanas that were near extinction on the island... More
