What To Do

I’m not a fan of any kind of lizards, matter of fact anything that crawls, but here in Roatan, you must visit Arch’s Iguana and Marine Park. There are Iguanas literally dropping from trees. It’s a site to see and they actually let you feed them too. If that’s not your thing, then you can relax on the beaches, eat local food or go diving or just drive around this beautiful islands.
