  • I went on foot from Henry Morgan (15 minute walk on the beach) as a couple and we visited the park with a guide for US$ 30. It's expensive but however to be able to see animals not in a cage it was nice. Monkeys climb us on it and we can take the parrots. There is among other things also a lazy and several iguanas. After an hour it was over but if desired you can spend the day on the spot.

  • Gumbalimba Park has a large number of monkeys, macaws, and other local animals. The animals are not really wild in that they are fed and some can be handled. If you are looking to hold a macaw or monk...  more »
  • We had been looking forward to a trip to this park ever since we learned they had capuchin monkeys to interact with. My 15-year-old daughter LOVES this cute little white-faced monkeys and was eager to...  more »

  • We visited this park about a week ago and had a remarkable time! The colors of the Honduran jungle; combined with the birds and monkeys that are plentiful, were breathtaking and awe-inspiring. The one thing that kept this from getting 5 stars was the 45 minute bus ride from the Carnival Cruise line port to the park. The bus driver would floor it, and then slam on the brakes constantly. Combine this with the potholes that are plentiful throughout the road and it left my family of four feeling nauseous at the end of the trip. "Saint" Christopher was our tour guide and was fantastic!
  • Absolutely loved this place. Friendly, funny staff, great outdoor activity, and fun for all ages. Awesome to see the different animals, and learn some history and more knowledge about the island. Would absolutely recommend going!!
  • Great place to interact with monkeys, iguanas, and macaws. Our guide walked us around the area and explained the history of the location and the island. There are many iguanas roaming the area. We went into one room to see exhibits of the different kinds insects from the area, and then walked through a cave system (inhabited by bats) to see a display about the history of pirates on the island. The tour ended the us interacting with the monkeys. This was the shortest part of the tour, but well worth it.
  • Nice place, I recommend it to everyone who enjoy clean air, love nature, and want to feel the beach zone.
  • It was amazing. The tour was a great hike and the entire park is beautiful. The zip lining and monkeys is worth it in itself! Would recommend to anyone and everyone. Completely blown away by all the workers kindness and professionalism. The zip lining helpers were extremely funny to be around, especially with the young ones! Cannot express how much I would recommend this place!
