A fun excursion. Guides were very informative, and answered all questions. Stayed away from monkeys, but loved the sloth and the iguana. I would recommend this tour.

We had a great time with the sloth, monkeys, Iguanas. I had more fun than my wife, but she loved the sloth holding. The monkeys sit on your shoulder or head. May dig into your pockets.

My kids and I went to Manawakie 3 years ago and they couldn't wait to do it again - it was the first thing they requested to do on this trip. Our guide, Franklin, was very knowledgeable and gave each family some of the local currency to take home as a keepsake. The kids and I loved the monkeys, and especially loved holding the sloth! We also got to hold a scarlet macaw. The iguanas qere neat too, and it was our first time.getting up close to them and petting them. We would absolutely do this tour again the next time we come to Roatan.

We loved the Monkeys, Sloths and Iguana Excursion!
July 06, 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the monkeys, sloths and iguanas. Holding a sloth and seeing it up close was a dream. Being in the area with the monkeys was hysterical as they crawled on our shoulders and heads, lots of giggling. There were so many iguanas of all sizes and we got to touch them and feed them. The tour guide was terrific! This is a must excursion!

Except for the walk (up a steep hill) to meet the tour group, I had the best time ever. Hugging a 2-toed sloth was delightful. They are so lovable and cuddly. Spending time with the macaws and monkeys was fun too. I couldn't wait to show my pictures to my friends and family. And Steven, our guide was a lot of fun, patient and knowledgeable. This tour made my vacation!!!

We loved holding a sloth and playing with the monkeys. The Iguana Farm was okay but not as interactive. It should be noted that these reserves were plentiful in Honduras. I would suggest that you look at many of them before deciding which one is best for you and your family.

May 24, 2023
We truly enjoyed this excursion. We went to a place where they have sloths and monkeys. You get to hold a sloth and pet it's back. It just clings to you and I loved it. Then the group goes into a cage with monkeys and they run around and sit on you. Don't take any water bottles in as the monkeys bite the top and then take the bottle to play with it. The iguana farm is interesting but not nearly as good as the first.

This was a very enjoyable tour. The monkeys were by far the best part, as you get to be up close to them. They run around and all over you. Everyone was laughing and smiling. There was only one sloth, but everyone got to hold it. The iquanas were crazy cool to watch and hear about there life cycle. Would highly recommend

We really enjoyed this excursion. The amount of time was perfect. We were able to interact with the animals as much as we wanted & the Sloth named Flash was adorable. Please bear in mind that these are still wild animals & we opted not to go into the Capuchin monkey's enclosure for just that reason. All the animals appeared very well cared for & the staff were very informative & helpful.

We got good information about the animals and really enjoyed the interactions with them. Animals can all be unpredictable and they were good to make us aware of things to expect so we weren’t caught off guard.

This excursion was exactly like it reads. You get to get up close to the Sloth and Monkeys. The guide that walked us thru this was so informed. Then we went to the Iguana Farm, for someone who likes lizards this will be up your alley. I am not a fan of them so this kind of freaked me out. I did feed them but not for long. I would recommend this excursion to anyone.

Monkey and Iguana Hang Out Fun
June 29, 2022
This was a very fun tour that included a trip to a Monkey and Sloth “Hang Out” run by Daniel Johnson plus a tour of the Iguana sanctuary. There were tourist items at both places plus extremely delicious smoothies at tge Iguana place. We were the first tour in the morning with just my wife and I and our guide was very friendly. With it being an early tour we avoided the crush of tourists which was very nice.Only thing was the taxi was waiting for us for the tour up a steep hill so we had to pay for a taxi to get to it, more than likely because the taxi tour guide was prohibited from picking us up right at the Port. This fun tour is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We had a great experience. In addition to the advertised destinations, we got a lovely tour of the island and a stop at a chocolate factory. The highlight was definitely being able to hold the sloth. They are adorable and so much fun to hold. The monkeys and macaws were also very entertaining. The iguanas were out in abundance and allowed us to feed and pet them. Our driver, Mr. Conner, was very informative and pleasant. The van was air conditioned and very comfortable. We were able to stop for souvenirs as well. We arrived back to the port with plenty of time to spare so there was no stress about being late to the ship. We highly recommend this tour if you love animals.

Monkeys, Sloths, and Iguanas
April 06, 2022
Everything was first rate! Because of time change, ship time, and local time, we showed up for our excursion 2 hrs early! Creg was very accomodating, and got us on our way. We got to all the attractions before the crowds, and holding a sloth was magical! I'm not crazy about reptiles, but the iguanas were fun and interesting. We even got to feed them. The monkeys were fun, too. Roatan was beautiful, and the people very nice. I was concerned about finding the meeting place, but the directions were clear, and it was an easy walk. My excursion was the highlight of my cruise!

January 09, 2022
Our driver was waiting for us outside the cruise port exactly where the detailed instructions said he would be. We had a comfortable air-conditioned mini-bus, & our driver gave us informative narration of the island on the way to our first stop at Daniel Johnson's Monkey & Sloth Hangout. This sanctuary is for rescued animals - mostly critters who started as pets until people realized they couldn't handle them. The sloth was adorable, and holding him was a bonus! The energetic capuchin monkeys were fun to feed and interact with, & feeding several types of colorful exotic birds was also interesting. Next stop was Arch's Iguana Reserve, where hundreds of wild iguanas roam freely. Our guide gave interesting info about the iguanas, and other tidbits about the sanctuary. On the way back to the port, we stopped at a local shop for souvenirs and at the top of a hilltop with views of the island, the port and our ship. Overall a great day in Roatan that we enjoyed very much.

Watson was our tour guide and he was fun and full of information. He took us all around the island and showed us the very best that Roatan had to offer. The Rum experience and the Chocolate Factory were fun tourist things. The very best was the visit to the two wildlife sanctuaries. The iguanas were fun to feed and the sloth was an interesting little guy to hold. Monkeys and birds on our heads rounded out the in-person visit with these animals. Had a great time and would recommend this trip to everyone.

What can I say.. Our tour guide, Watson, really showed us the island and gave us a grand experience. We started with the sloths and monkeys and went to see the iguanas. Getting to see the native wildlife up close and personal was so enjoyable. Watson took us to the chocolate experience where we stocked up on the delicious chocolate made right there. We then went to the Rum experience where we sampled some rum and rum cakes and made sure to pick some up for our trip home. Overall, I highly recommend this excursion for it's fun on the island experience.

Best tour deal on our cruise
March 17, 2020
Our tour included AJ's sloth park as well as the iguana preserve. Our driver Kislin Dilbert did an excellent commentary as we drove to the park, telling us all about the island and Honduras. The monkeys are delightful, running from person to person, dropping on your head, eating the grapes. The staff knows how to get them to perform! I had never seen sloths, and that was quite an education. And the macaws were fun as well, perched on your head! I also learned iguanas love bananas ... I'll have to remember that next time I encounter them at my cousin's house in Florida. This was the least expensive, most fun tour on our week-long NCL cruise.

If you love nature, this is a great experience. Our driver had a keen sense of how busy the areas were and made the most of our time. We got to the Monkey/Sloth sanctuary first but he knew from the amount of traffic there that we'd be in for a longer wait if we started there, so he brought us to see the Iguanas first and it wasn't that busy there so we had a great experience and then went back to the Monkey/Sloth place and most of the traffic was gone so we got in there pretty quickly. When we were done he asked if there was anywhere else we'd like for him to take us. I would've taken him up on the offer but the other people in the vehicle wanted to go back to the ship, so we were back with tonnes of time to spare. In fact, probably would have had time to check out a nearby beach. Maybe next time!

Excellent excursion stress free. Our driver Deri took great care of us. He also recommended us which Park to go first as he knew the busy times, and he was correct. We went to the iguanas first; the park has over 2000 iguanas roaming around, we were able to touch, carry and feed them, very knowledgeable staff. By the time we did the monkey park, the animals were tired, do the interaction was less, but had some good photo ops. After we were done with the parks, he took us sight seen and then we asked for a place to eat and took us to a restaurant, all while having a nice and pleasant conversation and giving us details of the island. He kept track of time and had us back at the Port with a little over an hour to spare.

No iguanas, but still a great tour
September 24, 2019
The tour started out by taking a bus ride around the island. We stopped at a gas station to use the restrooms before we started and our guide recommended local beers for us to try (had to purchase) and we got to drink them on the tour bus as we learned the culture of the island. We did not stop at the iguana farm, (not sure why it was not included) but after the bus tour we ended up at the animal sanctuary where we got to hold parrots, monkeys and a sloth. After that we had the option of purchasing lunch/drinks at the restaurant next door. The people were VERY friendly and our guide was very knowledgeable. It was a great experience I will never forget!
