Had an amazing time photographing and interacting with the iguanas, monkeys and fish! The owners did a great job of making us feel welcome, allowing us to feed the iguanas and they have certainly made a great home for these rescue animals! Thank you for a great day!

When we got there it was unbelievable the number of Iguana's that were there. So many large ones, the were very docile and you could even touch them.

We went to the iguana as part of our Roatan Island tour. It was pretty amazing to see all of these iguana up close and personal. We got to feed them rubber tree plant leaves and I had a banana in my back pack. The worker guy said to go ahead and feed them with it because they LOVE bananas.... More

As part of our tour with Roatan Ocean Adventures, we stopped at the Arch's Iguana Park. Got to feed the iguanas. Way cool, so many of them. Small marine park, a few fish to see. You can see and feed the iguanas in a short time, so this is just a stop on a bigger tour of Roatan.

We visited the Iguana Park in December 2015. There are probably close to 100 iguanas in the park, as well as caged monkeys. The iguanas are everywhere and it was quite fun to walk around and see them in action. Watch out - they're up in the trees too and you may get hit with poop if you're not careful... More

I thought I would be freaked out, but this was super cool. My 75 year old mom pet some of them. Really neat to feed the iguana. Some were as big as a crocodile...but, not scary. I recommend.

We visited Arch's Iguana and Marine Park on December 16, 2015. Sherman Arch owns the place, and it is so interesting. He doesn't "keep" the iguanas there - they just love it so much that they stay. There are iguanas everywhere, in all sizes. You can feed them leaves right out of your hand. Our youngest daughter sat down on... More

We hired a guide to take us around the island for the day (awesome). He mentioned this as an option and my reptile loving daughter wanted to go. It certainly isn't worth 40 dollars for a family...unless you have always dreamed of feeding a bunch of iguanas. The iguanas are neat, and they can come and go and do what... More

Nice little place to visit. But $10 seems a bit much for this. You see lots of iguanas on the ground and in the trees. There's nobody to give you any tour or explanation. There are some sad Capuchin and spider monkeys in cages. That's about it...
