  • A beautiful site, beautiful vegetation, good guide, iguanas, parrots, monkeys in freedoms. Entry $ 35 after the guided tour you can stay on the site and retrace the route as seem you. I'd be back every day for the monkeys that come on us.

  • We were very impressed with Gumbalimba Park! We had hoped to see monkeys, but assumed they would be caged etc. The trainer called them down from the trees and they jumped straight onto our shoulders. ...  more »
  • We took my mom here to see the monkeys and had a wonderful time. It was an easy walk into the jungle and our guide kept us safe the who time. There was a nice little museum in the park as well. We vis...  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.
  • 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!
  • Purchased this excursion through Anthony's key resort. My wife and I choose to go early in the morning before it got to hot , we were picked up at the resort at 9:00 am sharp. First zip lining, very professional staff. offered to take my camera and take pictures, normally zip line companies do not allow this as they want to sell pictures taken by their staff. Zip lining was a blast. next took a guided tour through the Park, very informative, had a mother monkey and her baby sit on the my shoulder, the baby was so amusing, playing with hat, my glasses my watch, what an experience. I would recommend going on none cruise ship days, we went on a Saturday and virtually had the Park to our selves.
