You will be entertained by hundreds of iguanas while at this sanctuary. You can interact with them all day. Have a chance to feed them. Dont let the food get to close to your fingers or you will get a bit of a bite. If you love your lizard you will love this attraction.

Overwhelming number of iguana's make this a really cool little stop. Our driver provided us with some foliage for them and it was like a feeding frenzy! There is not much to see there- a pen of tarpon, a few monkeys and macaws, but worth stopping if you are in the area. We loved it.

During our trip to Roatan we stumbled on Arch's Iguana Park and what a delight it was! As we entered the parking lot we were greeted by Sherman the owner of the park who welcomed us warmly and then provided us with a personalized tour! Sherman has a great facility and provides knowledge about his Iguanas and the island that... More

Right after you pay your $10, you'll walk down a paved driveway and there you'll find dozens of iguanas. For $1 you can feed them a banana leaf and watch them clamber and climb all over each other, and maybe even your feet, as they scramble to get to the leafy green goods. No need to worry, they're vegetarians. Some... More

Lizard haven. Or heaven. Very quirky iguana ranch that could only exist as a result of one man's dedication to a rather odd cause. Nonetheless I would say it's a must see if you are in the area. Add feeding and petting iguanas to your bucket list.

Certainly worth the trip if you want to see a lot of Iguanas in one location! The owner is trying to save these animals from the islanders who are killing them for food. Not much more to see here but got some great photos and for the $10 entrance fee, well worth it for our family.

We have lots of Iguanas or "gallinas de palo" as we call it in our Country and I hate them so I wasn't thrilled about this tour. When I arrived to the place there were iguanas everywhere!!! Also, there were people holding and petting the iguanas as if they were dogs. There was a teeneger who works at the farm... More

The Iguana's followed me around like puppies. I would stop and pet one and several more would come up for their chance. Great photo op.

This was a nice little stop during our day land adventure in Roatan, Honduras. Our family enjoyed it and if you like iguanas, then you have nothing to worry about. They are absolutely everywhere. Pretty cool to see them just hanging around outside in their own environment.

This was a short stop on an island tour of Roatan. And 15 minutes is about what it is worth. If you've never seen iguanas up close, this is a good place. Lots of iguanas all over the place, different colors shapes and sizes. They are very peaceful, and will let you feed them lettuce and pet them. Good for... More
