Arch's Iguana and Marine Park, French Harbour

#47 of 115 in Outdoors in Roatan
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.
