Arch's Iguana and Marine Park, French Harbour

#4 of 39 in Sightseeing in Honduras
Farm Tourist Spot
Give an iguana its lunch at Arch's Iguana and Marine Park. A home for rescued iguanas, this site offers the lizards the chance to come and go as they please. The reserve is dedicated to trying to repopulate the island after hunting threatened their existence. Touch, feed, and (if you’re brave enough) hold an iguana. You can help support this project by visiting the gift shop or buying some leaves and having a herd of hungry iguanas run toward you. The park also runs a environmental education program, dedicated to raising awareness of conservation within the local community and reducing the amount of plastic sent to the landfill. Put Arch's Iguana and Marine Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Roatan trip generator.

  • The Park is pretty small but it is immediately impressed by the massive presence of the iguanas that circulate to your feet. These charming lizards more than 1 metre love eat the leaves we tend them. It is nonetheless reassured by the fact that they are herbivores! It's really a wonderful experience especially for the youngest who can feed and pet iguanas. You can even have babies in his hand. The rest of the Park, down to a fish pond doesn't have much interest if it is to bring a little freshness with sea spray. Do again if you go through the island of Roatan.
