Creepy and cool at the same time.

So many iguanas! Got to feed them. If you feed them, watch out for your fingers! Also saw & fed very large fish.

I have never seen so many iguanas at once. For 10 dollars, you can pet and feed them. The leaves cost 2 dollars each. This place is definitely worth a try when visiting Roatan. About the monkeys, they seemed to be fine when we visited. They were very friendly. I don't understand why people are posting negative reviews in here.

Yes the iguanas are great. You can feed them, pet them and even pick them up. However when we walked through the "farm" we saw two monkeys that had been rescued. They were both alone in their cages and one was pacing back and forth....clearly losing his mind. We also saw birds in cages that were also alone and just... More

We heard this Iguana farm was great for children so we gave it a try. It cost $10 per person, our toddler was free. We were told the entry fee included a guide. When we walked in we noticed at the bottom of the hill hundreds of hungry iguanas. We didn't see any guides just some staff handing out leafy... More

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.
