Small but nicely done.

Happy they are trying to preserve and re-populate the turtles of Mexico! The fee helps with this preservation.

Yeah the turtles are cool, but kinda sad. This place is NOT worth the trip all the way down to see it. And they over charge...don't mind giving a donation, but wished they treated the animals better. Doesn't seem like they put much money bacj into the place, it's falling apart.

A great time learning and taking photos of the rare sea turtles that migrate to the island to lay their eggs. Fun for adults and children!

Seeing turtles in small tanks was kind of sad, although we realize this is a chance to educate the public, this could be so much more if the government put more into its development and expanded the exhibit. Could employ more local people, generate more revenue, and become a real benefit for protecting these beautiful creatures.

This attraction is located in between the hotel area and the southern tip (Punta Sur.) So it's in the perfect location for a short roadside stop while checking out the Isla on your scooter or golf cart. The 30 pesos were fine as they seemed to go to a good cause. Had I been traveling with my children, I think... More

If you are riding around on a gulf cart make a quick stop here to see some turtles. It is not a large place, or anything fancy at all. There is a small inside area with turtle tanks and a few pools outside then a closed off area in the ocean. Entrance fee is $3.00 and $2.00 for turtle food.... More

The best part of this trip was the man who helped us to hold different ocean animals. When will I ever hold a sea urchin again? Great experience and very grateful for that worker who helped us.
