Wasn't too excited about going but family insisted. The place itself isn't much and way off the map but definitely worth stopping by. Literally dozens of iguanas of all sizes and colors crawling around you in the trees and on the ground! You can feed them, watch them getting suntanned and even hold them and pet them! Had no idea...

If you are in Roatán, Arch's is a must see. You can learn about the iguana (though you may have to ask for a guide), you can feed and pet them, and they are roaming completely unhindered throughout the property. Though we were unable to participate ourselves, our island host also recommended them for a snorkeling tour in the marine... More

If you've never seen big iguanas it may be worth visiting. Otherwise it's definitely not worth the $10 US per person to visit. Animals are out on a concrete driveway where you can feed them up close and personal but there is nothing impressive about the location.

Visited this as part of a taxi tour. Enjoyed the experience of seeing so many iguanas and enjoyed feeding them with leaves. It would have been nice to have some information about them though as we just walked in and fed them took some hoots and came out.

Many iguanas, you cannot image it before visit. You can feed them and alow you to touch them. Several parrots and monkeys. We spent there nice 40mins.

We went today and we're disappointed. We paid $30 for two adults and two kids to get in. We were each given a large leaf to feed the iguanas and that was it. There are a couple hundred iguanas there and lots of big, orage males. They were fun to see but that was it. Then you can see a... More

Lots of iguanas that are protected in this park from being killed. Was nice to see them relaxing in the sun with their cabbage.

There were fairly small to large iguanas. My 6 year old granddaughter liked touching them. I did touch one.

Really small park, was expecting more... $5 to get in, same price as the sloth sanctuary, which included a tour, interaction, etc. Definitely if you're tight on time and looking for more of an interesting way to spend your afternoon, bypass the iguanas and head over to see the sloths instead. That being said, if you have kids or a... More
