I booked a tour of the sloth and monkey hangout and snorkeling. More than satisfied! Did this as an excursion off a cruise to Honduras. Karla was our driver. She was on time, easy to find, friendly and informative about Roatan. She also stopped so we could take a pic on the way to the monkey and sloth hangout. The sloth and monkey hangout is so fun. Sloths were adorable and we each got a chance to hold them. Monkeys were hilarious. Watch out if you are wearing an anti-sea sickness patch - they will take this off (fast) and eat it! Monkeys loved picking at my son’s hair and sitting on his head! I was wearing a bathing suit coverup dress and a monkey jumped down the back of my dress and hung out there! This visit was so entertaining. Boat for snorkeling takes off behind the hangout. This was the best snorkeling trip I have ever taken. Two stops - shallow and then deeper water. Beautiful! Karla got us back on time to the ship. Also, there is free WiFi at the hangout if you want to connect with friends/family abroad and send pics! Highly recommend this excursion. This was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Book through Facebook messenger and pay cash when you arrive. This is way better than any excursions I saw offered through our cruise.

First off, just a PSA - wear long sleeves if you are meeting the monkeys and have any moles on your arms. My husband has a mole on his arm that the monkeys took a real liking to and picked at it. The next day the area was red, hot and swollen. We had to see the cruise ship doctor ($200 later as they don't take insurance) and he had to be put on an antibiotic and follow-up with our doctor when we got home. Now the fun part - This place is VERY cool. Kim picked us up at the ship dock and taught us a lot about Roatan, she was a great guide. Nice air conditioned vehicle for the drive around Roatan. Moody our snorkel guide was fabulous - GO PATS! - and we saw some great fish, a barracuda, lobsters and he even brought up a sea cucumber for all of us to hold. Holding Olivia the sloth was amazing and she is so sweet. The monkeys are crazy fun. We enjoyed meeting all the different birds too. Great place and very easy to do the tour if you are coming in on a cruise ship.

Came to hold the sloths. Wasn’t disappointed. Small zoo like place . 10 dollar admission was worth it spent a half hour there.

Other animals including monkeys are great but the sloth is the star of the show. Where else can you hold one. It is a small place but not expensive and if you want a picture with a sloth this is the place.

You can't beat paying $10 bucks to learn about sloths and actually get to hold a sweet thing! Fun time!
