Visiting Arch’s Iguana Park (Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Honduras)

Maya
  • On March 14, 2014

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Conquest – Caribbean Cruise. It was very affordable to enjoy the day in Roatan from the scenic drive West and East through villages to visiting the wildlife sanctuaries and getting up close and personal… in this case… Iguanas… which remind me of a legendary, mythical dragon.

MEETING OUR TOUR GUIDE

We excitedly exited the ship and saw our first photo-op:

Then you’ll see a group of agents holding up signs for various Carnival Cruise excursions. But if you didn’t arrange an excursion through the ship or want to see what other adventures you can take in for the day, you have to exit the Mahogany Bay Cruise Center. You see, Carnival owns this whole area so you won’t see competitors promoting their tours here. Veer left and at the end of the strip of shops and restaurants, you’ll take a slight right towards taxi and vans. Take another left for a short uphill climb to the gate. You can ask around and people will point you in the right direction. But you will see this gate and know you’re on the right track.

After this gate, you head downhill where all third-party vendors for tours are waiting.

    Recently on a Carnival cruise to Mahogany bay, I spotted a black and white large Iguana on the rocks near the pier leading back to the ship. I swear it caught my eye cause it looked like it had 2 blue spots behind it’s head. After the cruise, looking at the pictures on the computer I enlarged that shot of the iguana and the blue spots were
    BLUE BEADS. Someone had marked this one with 4 beads on a pierced spot in the main
    for lack of a better word, on this sporty guy. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT.
    CURIOSITY IS GETTING THE BEST OF ME. DID IT COME FROM THE IGUANA PARK AND ESCAPE???
    The beads were like those at the end of dreadlock braids. I would love to know the story behind that cool looking iguana.

      How wonderful to have seen that blue spotted Iguana. Did you get a picture? The Iguana Park does not cage any iguanas. They are all wild and return for the free food and sanctuary that’s provided to them…
