OK for a little visit

You may see some nice wild animals, and some monkeys, beware, they are nasty sometimes. Nice personal.

Amazing iguana farm where you see the Iguana running wild all over the place. Stopped on a cruise. The port is scary since it is encased in barbed wired fences that must be 20 feet hi.

A visit here was part of day tour.from our cruise ship. We're accustomed to lizards as we had many on our property so the experience wasn't the harrowing ordeal for us as it was for our British cruise mates. Fascinating to see these exotic creatures up close and in so many numbers but there's not much else there to see... More

Just visited there last week and grand children 9 & 2 were fascinated, 9 years old loved the fact he could touch iguanas and feed them. The staff is terrific, monkeys were friendly and grandson enjoyed feeding the fish too. We all had a very good time. Highly recommended for kids or grown ups/

This is a great place to visit. The iguanas are plentiful and friendly. Bring food for them. Also, it's a great place to buy souvenirs.

My kids and husband LOVED this place (I am a little freaked out by the lizards!). They are really in the business of saving animals and have a lots of iguanas along with some other animals/fish. The kids fed and petted the iguanas as they freely roamed the property! Great cause, great attraction!

Albeit small this is a fantastic place to go. Great staff, $10 to get in and loads of Iguanas. You get to feed and hold them which is an experience. There are some monkeys to see and a small marina with various fish in it. Staff where friendly and very helpful, Pamela especially. They don't take cards so need cash... More

Nothing fancy about this place but it is definitely worth a stop if you are visiting nearby sites, especially if you live in wet, cold climate as the sight of so many iguanas are hard to comprehend. You can feed and pet them.

We stop at Arch's to see the iguanas on every visit to Roatan, often taking bananas with us. Arch's isn't anything fancy so don't expect any sort of modern zoo. Our daughter enjoys seeing the fish in the enclosed pen "catch" the fish that's thrown out to them.

Located on the outer edge of French Harbor, you'll need to pay close attention for signs if you are not with a driver or tour. Once you find it, you'll be amazed at how many iguanas you will start to see as you pull in and park. But wait, you haven't made it down the ramp or stairs, where you'll... More
