What an awesome place to get up close and personal with iguanas! This place was great! Also refreshments were reasonably priced. The marine part was OK... but the iguanas made the trip worth it!

At first, it is a bit creepy to wade through all of the iguanas. They are not afraid of you and actually are looking to you to feed them treats. Then you get used to it and chuckle to see chickens and iguanas sharing space. I got a chance to meet Mr. Arch while I was visiting and learned the... More

On our recent trip to Roatan, we took our two young grandsons (5 and 2) to this park. There were literally hundreds of iguanas; many fully grown. The park provides you with some large leaves to feed the iguanas. They come around and devour the leaves! There is a large fish pen on the water full of Tarpon and other... More

This was our first stop of a tour and we were really lucky as we were the first visitors of the day. As the sun shone down on us the iguanas came out to meet us as we walked down towards the marine area. Staff gave us leaves to feed to them and they were very hungry and climbed on... More

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
