OMG I can't tell you how excited I was that I finally made it over to Isla Mujeres and to visit the Tortuga Farm...basically the only reason we went to Isla Mujeres. I really wish we would have been there during a turtle release but honestly my whole trip was made by getting to visit the farm. For a whopping... More

We arrived right at closing time, but they allowed us to come in. At the end of the tour we noticed a hatchling crawling around and a couple that did not make it. We notified staff and they allowed me to pick up the turtle i had noticed and we located 7 more that had just emerged. There was one... More

It's like $3 admission and $1 for turtle food. You get to feed them and get up close w/ all sorts of turtles. You can also walk on the dock and see larger sea turtles, stink ray and nurse shark. Soooo cool! I'm glad we stop by here. It's very close from Punta Sur.

It is amazing the amount of baby sea turtles you will see here! They are adorable!! You can feed the turtles as well, so buying the $2 bag of food is totally worth it!

This turtle farm is a must see. It is only $3 and worth much more. It’s not a large farm, but it was so interesting to see all the different turtles and you are supporting a good cause. The place looks like it is run just on funds. The workers are extremely nice. If you have a moment to go,... More

An inexpensive outing. With cab ride and admission it was less than $20. Lots of different sizes and ages! They lets us hold some turtles, a starfish, and a horse shoe crab. Tanks inside and outside and a large area where they have eggs in the sand. You don't need more than 30 minutes to see it all. While we... More

Its a small place with all sorts of turtle to look at. You have to pay a small fee to get it and there is a gift shop. The prices in the giftshop is a little higher than what it is on Hidalgo street so beware about that but otherwise a good way to spend an hour.

This is not a large farm by any means, but there is plenty to see! It is $3 US to enter the facility and inside there are several tanks with turtle is them. While the signs say "no touching the turtles," there are a couple of workers who (are not in any uniform, so its hard to tell they work... More
