Monkey and Sloth Sanctuary + City Tour

It's the perfect tour to see Roatan, interacting with locals and checking out the historical parts of the island. In this tour we will make a stop at Daniel Johnson's or Mayan Jungle's Monkey and Sloth Sanctuaries.

We booked an excursion through the cruise ship and this was recommended. The four of us were excited to do zip lining in the canopy. We had one person with us who had never done any zip lining before and although nervous at first, he ended up a pro by the end. We totally enjoyed it and there are 15 lines! It took quite a while to get down. We were dropped off at the top of the course/mountain and greeted by the tour guides who were all knowledgeable and friendly. They geared us up and most importantly double and triple checked our harnesses. Although we were in a large group, it was very organized and loads of fun. We had a woman that was a little overwhelmed at first so one of the guides went with her. He did all the work and she was able to experience it. After a while, she wanted to go by herself and had no problem doing it. I thought the equipment and the riggings were very secure. Everything looked fairly new. Some of the platforms were a little small once there were alot of us on them. The guides all have walkie-talkies and they would hold up the next person once the platforms got full. At one point we saw several monkeys and they came right up on the platform. The total trip down took about an hour and a half. Once at the bottom, we were at the beach. It is a beautiful area and our excursion continued through the animal preserve. We enjoyed that too - the walk may be strenuous for some as there is a good number of stairs in the beginning. You also walk across a swinging rope bridge and that was pretty scary. It was a good ways across a pond of water but it was fun and we were glad to get across but also glad we did it. You do have the option to walk around the pond and you do not have to do the bridge. There are a couple stations where you get to interact with Capuchin monkeys (adorable) and colorful parrots. We really enjoyed the whole experience. One person in our group had a bad ankle and didn't want to walk around the Preserve so he went to the beach while we were gone. Two concerns: 1. After the Preserve Tour, we were taken back to where the lockers and photo pick up was. There wasn't anyone at the counter for us to look at our photos. 2. Then, we were not sure where to go from there. Our excursion was advertised as four hours and we were past that but no one was escorting us out of the park (like normally happens on excursions). What we finally found out is that the cruise shuttles were nearby and they left every 15-30 minutes to go back to the port. So we could have stayed longed, if we chose. That part was not clear. It was still worth the Excellent rating though!

We had a great time and got to hold macaws, see a sloth and have a white faced capuchin monkey jump on our shoulders. Great experience in a Honduran rainforest!

We cruise a lot, and have done many excursions all over the Caribbean. This ranks up there in our top 5 of all time.. Excellent tour. Got to have monkeys on our backs, take pictures with Large Macaw Parrots, walk over an amazing bridge, visit an insect museum and a great walking tour. Other people on the ship also did a tour in this park, but did not see the monkeys, they had more of a beach break. Make sure you get the excursion with the monkeys !!

We walked here from Sandy Bay and were ready for a little rain forest hiking after most of our time spent at the beaches. Nice staff briefed us on our self-guided tour and hike up the hill. Lots of interesting native trees and other plants which were all pretty clearly labeled. We walked to the top of the park where a lovely vista can be had all the way to Anthony's Key Resort. Wear good hiking shoes as some of the trails are a bit rustic. Worth the hike for sure.
