If you are touring around the island on a golf cart, this place is worth a stop. Cost is very small and you can see some baby turtles up to adult. Good for 30 minutes to an hour.

We visited Tortugranja in August. They have golf cart parking. Almost every car (cart) in their parking lot is a golf cart. Although I did see some tourists being dropped off by taxi's as well. Takes about 15-20 minutes by golf cart from the main ferry docks in Isla Mujeres. Its a neat little turtle aquarium and you pay about... More

We had a great experience here with our two boys. The baby sea turtles are adorable. You can get up close and really interact. For such a small spot, they really pack in a lot of experiences. Don't miss the open water exhibit in the back. Whale sharks, manta rays, and larger sea turtles. Great spot for kids.

Stopped here during our self-guided tour of the island. Paid about $3USD/pp to support local preservation (a few extra for turtle feed). It was awesome to see turtles, star fish, fish of all kind inside in the tanks. Outside is a small beautiful pier that has sea turtles, sting rays, and sharks enclosed. There is also a nesting area for... More

This is a small place doing a big job. They are doing some great work here to help the turtle population. It connects people and turtles. Maybe it will make people take better care of the oceans they live in.

This is a must-see when you are visiting Isla. The turtles are amazing to watch - the kid in me came out when we saw the tank full of the tiny baby turtles! The larger turtles are fun to feed and watch swim around. They also have a small area where you can handle crabs and a few other small... More

Stopped here while driving my golf cart around. While the place isn't that large it was nice to get to see and feed the sea turtles. Had a great time there.

Helping nature with a positive hand, how great it was to be there and see the good work being done. A shame there were people lifting the baby turtles out of the water for fun, much more supervision is needed. I even witnessed an asian man wanting to take a few turtles with him, why, well I don't even want... More

This place is fun to visit as you can see baby turtles, juveniles and adults. It is relatively small so it doesn't take long. The conservation work they do is good so support them!
