This excursion was nice because it was so easy. We had the same driver all day, kids and adults loved the horses and sloths. This was a family favorite!
Honduras horseback riding, sloth park and beach tour
holly_m, Apr 2023
Getting off shore in honduras is tough for any excursion as there are crowds of people and congested streets. Companies stand holding up signs so you know where to go. When we found Webster tours, there seemed to be a man that was the lead one. met us on the main street near port. Seemed like Webster tours had a main person in charge there. He divided people up into smaller groups in different cars. My girl friend and I were assigned 2 young gentlemen. We hesitated for a second and made sure our families knew where we were via cell location. Our tour "guide" and driver were very nice young men. The driver didnt speak any English but "guide" was able to communicate in enough English. He was basically there to just answer any questions I had about the area. All conversation was initiated by me. This isnt really an excursion by one company. The excursion by Webster Tours was sub contracted out to other companies. I assume cost was to just to provide transportation and entrance fees for horse back riding and sloth park (not sure about beach part because we didn't go to one). When we arrived to horse park it also had a small beach but couldnt tell if they were together or not. I felt like when we arrived for horse back riding the company had no idea they were expected us. They plopped us on a horse and added us to another group that were just getting ready to leave. They did take us though and the ride was nice while "guide" and driver stayed behind. Horses follow in a line and we took a short walk through the water too. They stopped to take photos of everyone on the horses too. Secondly, we went to AJs sloth park which was cool. Again, driver and "guide" waited while we went thru the park on our own. Beach was supposed to be part of what we paid price for but the guide seemed to not know what or where that was. He kept asking what we wanted to do. I had to re-explain what I purchased (horses, sloth park and beach). He just kept asking what we wanted to do. Finally we mentioned we would like to snorkel and he said we could add that option on for an extra 30 bucks per person. Again, it seemed like there was no communication between Webster tours and the snorkeling people as they seemed surprised when they asked if we could just join a snorkeling group. It was worth the 30 bucks though. We took a short boat ride and snorkeled for about 45 minutes with a group of 15 people. Snorkeling guide and helpers on boat were amazing. We ended up ending the trip slightly early because we didn't know what else to do and nothing was being offered by the "guide". Overall, not a bad experience but I wish it wasn't so wishy washy about what was expected. I also wished we got to see a nice beach and not the small one at the horse place. When I had asked the "guide" where other beaches were he kind of motioned on the other side of the island. So we didn't really get to see coastal beach. I elwas able to communicate via viator questions about the excursion such as where to get picked up and time. I think it should be clearer to customers what exactly the plan is. I also think it would be helpful to mention that extras can be added such as the snorkeling on the app.
So disappointing
Anqunette_M, Apr 2023
First, our guide Sonny was great. I have nothing but good things to say about him. Also, the Sloth Park was a blast and we had a lot of fun. And that’s where the good times ended. This company should really find a new horseback riding business. We waited about 40 minutes to ride horses and while this is billed as private, we were placed with a group of 12 people and my husband was given a horse they had to bring from the back. He was much taller than the other horses and not as tame. We should have known something was off because the guide held the horse as he walked along side him the entire ride. None of the other horses needed this attention. When we got to the water, my husband’s horse got behind another horse and tried to bite it, which made the horse in front try to kick my husband’s horse. My husband’s horse starting spinning and thrashing in the water, reared back, and bucked off my husband right into the water. And to cap it all off, the horseback ride lasted 15 minutes and it was supposed to be an hour. Finally, because we wasted so much time waiting to ride the horses, we had no beach break. What a waste of $200 and our time on the island.
Awesome excursion!

Holding a sloth is like holding a newborn baby! Just amazing! The entire excursion was fun, exciting and well designed. I'll do it again when I can!
A Perfect Cruise Excursion with Amazing Photo Ops
Susan_W, Mar 2023
We exited our cruise and were picked up in a private car with Jack. He stayed with us all day and Larry, the person I contacted through Viator, was easy to communicate with and told me where to go and who to look for. We went to the sloth park first and beat all the cruise traffic and then hopped on our horses for a gentle ride near and in the water. Went back to the beach near the stables and spent the rest of the day on the little beach and in the water enjoying great views, food and service!
Don't miss out on a great time!
amanda_c, Mar 2023
Amazing guide and once in a lifetime experience all wrapped up in our private guide with his own vehicle. No waiting in long lines, screaming kids on a bus. I don't think I'll ever book through the cruise ship again after such a great time and we were able to make the best of the short time the cruise ship permitted. Try it and you won't be disappointed! He took care to check us in and welcome us back from horseback riding and monkeys. Gave us a tour of island and stopped.if we wanted to. I cant wait to come back.
Best Excursion EVER!!
Nathan_W, Feb 2023
We had a great driver, Jose. The Sloth place was awesome, we all got the chance to hold sloths, monekys, and a large parrot. The Horseback riding was fun, we then were taken to private beach area, we negotiated a snorkeling excursion with them and were able to go out on a boat and go snorkeling, where we saw star fish and several other fish, the snorkeling equipment was top of the line. This was by far the best excursion we went on for our cruise vacation. We then had the opportunity to lounge around and enjoy the beach before being driven back to the pier. Our family of 6 loved this excursion!
Super fun excursion in Roatan
brisa_o, Feb 2023
I have no words to describe how fun this excursion was for me and my bf. We had the best time of our lives holding the sloths, monkeys and parrots lol. We had our personal Uber driver so he was able to take us whenever we wanted to explore after our excursions. The horseback riding was perfect because it was just me and my bf so we got have the full experience without a big group :) totally recommend!
Amazing Full Day in Roatan
ChristopherM, Jan 2023
This tour ended up being so much more than the description. We had, in effect, a private tour guide for the day. Everything list was great, then we added zip lining, a beach side lunch, shopping and on and on. Webster tours is a safe and reliable family company, and Marvin was amazing. It made the day, snd my daughters said it was the best part of our cruise!
A good day but a bit cramped
Jeffrey_G, Dec 2022
We had a group of 4 for the excursion. Jack our guide was very nice and pleasant but the ride was a bit cramped as we had 5 people in the car. A larger vehicle should have been used for this excursion. Other than that all was good. We were on a cruise ship stop and rode for 15 minutes or so from the dock to the sloth/monkey park. The park was like a small zoo with 8 sloths, a few varieties of monkeys and some parrots. The guides there gave each person a chance to hold a sloth and to get in the cages with the monkeys and parrots. It was a very good experience. We later realized there is a similar attraction walking distance from the pier. We then rode to the horseback and beach area. The horses were waiting for us and we took a ride down to the water - guides were very friendly in taking photos for us and making sure we were doing okay with the horses since we were not experienced with them. We then had plenty of time to relax at the beach area. The beach itself wasn't sandy but the area was nice. Jack then drove us back to the pier area and recommended Jungle Top restaurant where we had a good lunch. More information on Roatan and Honduras would have been welcomed but we enjoyed our time in Roatan and this excursion.
Best day ever.
Christine_M, Dec 2022
Something new at every turn. Bill our driver was informative, friendly, and prompt. Loved every minute!
Amazing animal excursion!
Karen_M, Dec 2022
We had an absolute blast on this excursion! Bill was our guide and was so knowledgeable of the island and an all around great person. What an experience to hold a sloth, monkey and birds! Our guide on the horseback ride was Christian. He made sure we had horses that equaled our riding experience, and took us to some picturesque places and we rode through the ocean. Afterwards we had time to sit on the beach and eat at the restaurant. My 81 year old dad and our 25 year old sons were with us and we all had so much fun! Pro Tips: 1. Start early! We got to the Sloth/Monkey sanctuary early (around 0845 and were by ourselves, with plenty of time to hold the animals, before the cruise excursions got there) 2. Order the seafood sampler plate at the restaurant near the horseback/beach (SO good and fed the 5 of us)
Family fun

Great trip. Family friendly with a lot of flexibility and chill guide. Would recommend for others including those with small children (ours was 5 years old and loved it).
Honeymoon adventure
Leah_T, Apr 2022
My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon cruising and one of our favorite port stops had to be in Roatan Honduras! Getting to be one on one with sloth and monkeys was unmatchable! And the horseback ride to the beach was a lot of fun! We have to give a big shout out to our tour guide he went above and beyond taking us all over the island and to a local restaurant with authentic food! Highly recommend if you’d like something more private!
Great Time
Joseph_V, Mar 2022
We all had a great time. Our host Jonathan was awesome. Great combination of stops and a great day at to see the island. Only caution is have the name of the the tour company handy. Finding your transportation in the melee outside the port is a challenge.
We had so much fun with...
Erik_S, Feb 2022
We had so much fun with Larry of Webster tours. He was knowledgeable and told us all sorts of interesting facts and history while navigating between the ship, sloth Park, horseback ride, and mountain top. The tour is whatever you want to do after you're done with those two stops which were both incredible. We would give Webster 10 stars if we could.
Amazing experience
Jennifer_M, Aug 2021
I can’t say enough positive things about our day trip with Roatan Excursions. My daughter and I were traveling from Utila back to the states and had a day to spend in Roatan. We knew we wanted to see sloths and ride horses but got so much more. First of all, we have never had such an easy time booking anything. My daughter found this company online and decided to give them a call. A helpful woman picked right up and explained the tour stops. She literally let us pick anytime of the day that worked for us. She asked where we were staying and promised us a driver would meet us at our guest house the following day. I will admit I was a bit skeptical the day of the trip because it was too good to be true. Imagine my surprise when 10 minutes early an awesome, comfortable, clean and fully air conditioned truck rolled up TO OUR DOOR and Larry hopped out. He told us he was ready when we were, no worries. Now for the covid part- The Bay Islands were our first travel in 18 months. We were fully vaccinated months before we traveled. We still, out of an abundance of caution and for the comfort of those around us (we are in their country) mask up. When we met Larry he was wearing a mask. I let him know we were fully vaccinated and it was his car, his choice about him wearing it the whole day. Without any hesitation he said he was fine with whatever we chose to do but he was happy in his mask. That was the end of it. We wore our masks, so did he absolutely no problems. Our first stop was The Sloth Hangout at the other end of the island. On the dive Larry was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all my questions (flora, fauna, island politics). The sloth encounter blew us away. We are South Floridians with no lack of monkey and wildlife encounters (the original Monkey Jungle is a 20 minute ride for us). I think I was expecting to look at some sad rescued monkeys in cages, read some posted signs, take a few pictures and be pushed into a gift shop. Oh was I wrong!!! We had a private eco tour! It. Was. Awesome. I will review that separately because this is already way too long. After our tour we found Larry waiting out front for us. He drove us to our second stop, a little beachside paradise. It was fantastic. Tiki umbrellas, lounge chairs, hammocks, a beach restaurant, horse stable. I’ve traveled a bit and didn’t know places like this existed. We were welcomed to snorkel, swim, kayak. Everything right there and great showers and bathrooms. Again I will review this place separately but let me say this- the owner of the establishment came out to say hi and asked us if we wanted lunch when we came back from our horseback ride. Did we ever! He proceeded to take our orders and sure enough, it was ready when we got back and it was delicious. The servers were sweethearts. Everything was spotless and clean. When it was time to go we got back in the truck and Larry asked if we needed to stop anywhere before taking us back to our guest house. We got a burst of energy and asked to be taken to the West End for some last minute shopping. He gladly took us and offered to wait. We said no, he had put up with us the entire day! We gladly did take him up on his offer to drive us to the airport the following day. He gave us his number on What’s App and confirmed pick up that night and again was early for pick up the next day. My daughter and I were so sad to say goodbye to someone who made our trip so memorable. A huge thank you to Viator trips for everything.

thank you so much for your feedback appreciate it a lot, we are here to help you have the best time possible
Highlight of our trip!!!
yikes2000ss, July 2021
The two of us had absolutely no issue walking out & finding our private guide. He gave us real coconuts to drink & then took us to sloths/monkeys. Can't say enough for the the sloth/monkey encounter. Teenager totally loved them. He then took us to the horses. Horses were sorta lead follow. Did with another couple. One of them could ride and kept leaving and coming back and that was ok so he had a good time. The rest of us just sorta trotted along beside, behind, just kind of where ever. Got to ride along beach in the water which was on granddaughter's bucket list. Didn't want to go to beach, so our driver took us sight seeing and to a souvenir store. Our driver was great, opened doors, escorted us to each adventured and then just stayed back and watched/waited. Sloth/monkeys were AWESOME! Horses were good (for horses), scenery was sort of sketchy. Both places took pictures of us with our own phones. However, never felt unsafe and this was our best excursion the whole time. Was on Carnival Vista but booked this on our own. Grandmother with 17yr old granddaughter.
