MANAWAKIE ECO NATURE PARK, manawakieecopark.com

GREAT!!!!! We were cruising on the Carnival Mardi Gras and booked this tour. This was one of the best tours we have ever taken.

William Brown is the manager and Danny was our driver. Two very nice men, friendly, warm and willing to do all that it would take to make sure we had a blast.

They succeeded and we did have a blast.

The monkey's were so friendly, I would of been happy with just this event. Really cute and funny. Of course the sloths were adorable.

We are cruising again in November and might go back for another visit.

Danny our driver gave us a tour of the Island and told us the history of his people and the island.

After the park visit we asked William if Danny could take us to a local restaurant for lunch. Danny knew just the place, all the food was wonderful.

Do not miss this!

So much fun!

We loved every minute of our visit to Manawakie Park! Our guide, Tyron and our sloth keeper, Jerry were both so friendly, knowledgeable, professional and polite. They let us take our time, answered all of our questions and even helped with taking photos. There was even a souvenir stand with a great variety of items and the vendor was very friendly and not pushy at all. One stop shopping for me! I’d recommend this place to anyone!

Fun Experience with the Animals
This nature center was cute but, small. The tour guide explained the vegetation and history of the island and he was very sweet. He let me go into the monkey cage and play with the monkeys as long as I wanted to! There are 4 monkeys and one spider monkey that was newer so we were not able to play with him. There were only 2 sloths that were available to see. The other 2 were a pregnant female and a juvenile. They were too fragile to play with. There was also a macaw and other parrots. This nature center is more natural but pricey for the size and number of animals. We still enjoyed it. We went by ourselves since we had a car so we had the place to ourselves. They also had a small gift shop and toilets for guests.

Exciting animal tour
Driver William is a really cool guy. He helped me with some other things on the island aside of driving for the tour, knowledgeable. Had an excellent experience with Tyron. He's knows great island history and is good with handling the animals.

Great experience!
Jul 2021 • Couples
The hubs and I did this as part of an island tour. We are happy to have supported a smaller rescue center. Tyron was our guide and he was awesome. We walked first through the natural plants area and learned about some of the history of the island. It was a brief overview but appreciated.

The funnest part by far was the monkeys. All four had been relinquished from being pets (why people why?) so we felt good about interacting with them. They are obviously used to humans and we thoroughly enjoyed our interaction with them. It was clear how much Tyron cares about these guys.

We also met a three toed sloth. It was a very gentle experience and although I still wonder if the sloth likes human contact versus being left alone, it was nice to see one up close.

Overall this was well worth our time and they support either rescued animals or with the sloth, animals that are endangered on the mainland so we can get behind that any day.

Fantastic experience
There are multiple sloth zoos here in Roatan but this is the hidden gem with the personal customer service that makes you feel like your the only visitor there with the guide. Learned a lot and just had a heck of a time playing with all the animals. Yes, we played with the animals and not just hold them. The guides really made it fun as the monkeys went up and down my shirt and jumping on and off of me. Don’t worry, they don’t scratch and they are super soft but if you don’t want them jumping on you , just say so. I had a blast playing with them. Highly recommend.

Monkey, Macaws and Medicine - Oh My!
Jul 2021
I had the most wonderful time at Manawakie Park's Sloth and Monkey Encounter. In addition to interacting with the resident wildlife (shout out to Pancho, Speedy and Flash), I learned about the trees and plants of Roatan (many with medicinal properties), as well as the island's history. Tyron was an excellent tour guide and I appreciated his insights, information and advice as we toured the park. Thank you for a memorable day!

The best day with the family!
We had a wonderful experience at the park. Our guide Tyron was very knowledgeable. We learned about local herbs and plants that can be used for medicinal purposes. But best of all was playing with the monkeys. They have four very healthy monkeys that love to goof around. My 17 and 14 year old could not get enough of them. They have two gorgeous macaws that we took turns holding. And the grand finale was the opportunity to hold an incredibly sweet sloth. I am a huge animal fan and if I felt that the animals were being harmed or exploited my review would be very different. But the owners and employees treat their animals with great respect and care. This experience is a must do!

My wife and I visited this little known park which we found out about through a contact named Carlos who also provided the transportation and great history about the Island of Roatan. Our tour guide at Manawakie Park was William Brown. He did an excellent Job with explaining the history of the culture, buildings and the herbs available on Roatan and also with the animals there. We learned quite a bit and would recommend this park to those looking to learn more as they are introduced to monkeys, Macaw's and Sloth. Will visit again next trip.

Wonderful family excursion!!
Must do when visiting Roatan! We learned a lot about the Roatan culture and had a blast meeting the monkeys and sloths up close and personal lots of laughs by all! Tyran was our park tour guide and he could not have been more kind and knowledgeable! Very nice day for our family! William Brown was our transportation and also tour guide of the area for part of the day as well. We enjoyed learning about growing up on the island and he also took us to eat local food which was awesome!! He made us feel right at home in his hometown. Great experience!
