We've been to Arches twice - in 2016 and 2017- it's true, the iguanas are very cool and it's fun to see the monkeys and big fish. But the hidden gem of this attraction is the guided snorkel trips with Samuel Arch! You can reserve...More

We visited here as part of a sightseeing/snorkel tour with Roatan Ocean Adventures. The number of iguanas that great you is amazing. The best part is feeding them leaves. The site also includes two caged primates and a gift shop.

The kids really wanted to stop and see the iguanas at this attraction. It's not really a very long activity, but they loved it. It costs $10 to enter and there are basically just iguanas everywhere. You can touch them and feed them a couple...More

Lets kids and adults enjoy nature, great ocean view in the back. It's a must, one of the many while visiting Roatan.

Iguanas in the Caribbean have historically been a food source for locals. Fortunately Arch has crested thus refuge Check it out if looking for something to do while on Roatan

We were advised there were better things to do on our short stop in Honduras but really wanting to visit we thought we'd give it a go. $10 per person is a bit steep for what essentially is work in progress. We understand the attraction...More

You will definitely get your fill of iguanas if you visit Sherman Arches iguana park. Everywhere you look there will be iguanas so watch your step.

You will see a lot of iguanas. If that's your schtick, you will love this place. If you don't like iguanas, this is definitely not the place for you. Feeding time is a frenzied mass of reptiles all clamoring to get a piece of lettuce....More

Does anyone know about the monkeys they keep, I see the pictures of them in cages, are they being rehabilitated?

They are rescued but don't believe that they will be turned loose. This is a great facility - even rescues and care for injured and old Iguanas. Well worth the visit.
Does anyone know how transportation would work to combine this with Daniel Johnson's monkey and sloth tour? Are they near enough that the driver of Daniel's would take us here also? Thanks

Some of the reviews I have read said that the leaves to feed the iguanas were provided, other reviews said you had to purchase the leaves for $1 or $2. If there is a $10 per person admission fee, I would think that the leaves would be provided. Can you confirm what the policy is? Thanks.

Yes, it's $10 to get in and then $1 to feed them. It's a rescue center so it is funded through these fees. We did enjoy interacting with them, but we did not feed them. They like being held! No feeding necessary.
