Visit an animal sanctuary where rescued wildlife including monkeys and sloths call home. Enjoy some interaction with the animals at the sanctuary, hug and hold 3-toed sloths and look for the white-faced Capuchin monkeys as well as spider monkeys.

Travel to an iguana farm located at the beach. There are so many iguanas here that roam freely in a protected haven, there are too many to count. Some can grow up to four feet long! Have a personal interaction and one-on-one with Roatan's most exotic species where visitors can feed and touch these friendly reptiles.

Your tour includes villages, scenic viewpoints, local landmarks as well as some local wildlife and culture, a great way to experience Roatan.

Monkeys, sloths, iguanas

Adolf got us to see the iguanas perching in the sun, eating from our hands, and then the monkeys and sloths were very fun to interact with. We appreciated Adolf showing us the unique things on Roatan. This was a worthwhile tour.

Great scenery, awesome critters!

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.

Beyond Expectation

Driver met us outside gate as described and from there we got a personal tour of the island as well as the normal shore excursion. Our driver was beyond friendly and helpful and we felt completely at ease with him. Highly recommend. If you want to get away from the more crowded there and back cruise ship excursion which has several people in them, this is the one to take!

Best tour deal on our cruise

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.
