The farm is quite small and the displays are fairly crowded. I did not learn anything about their operation while I was there and the location is quite isolated

The turtles are adorable. Visiting here was a great stop. We learned a little, watched the wild life and I took one of my favorite pictures of the entire trip right outside the gift shop door.

This little place wouldn't compare with an aquarium on the mainland, but on the island of Isla Mujeres it's a must-do!

It is a small sanctuary but the animals are well taken care of of the staff were excited to share their love of the sea creatures. Nice to see that they are doing something for the animals that are endangered.

This place is small but they have many different types of turtles. We were able to feed the turtles and look at them very closely. We had a great time there.:)

Yes the place is small, but its very rare to be able to see Sea Turtles so close. I really thought it was a great place, with what they do. My daughter enjoyed watching the babies swim all over.

The two men running the farm are very sweet and enjoy giving the tourists a memorable experience. We enjoyed the hands on exhibits.

They have about 6 pools inside 1 big room with turtles and 3 pools outside with turtles. Inside they also have a few aquariums with some fish and sea horses. You will spend about 15 minutes there, unless you are my husband who was gagging on the smell inside the room. If you like turtles this is the spot for... More

I really liked seeing all the turtles. Different sizes, different types. Worth the $30 pesos. You can feed the turtles which is fun. There are tanks with others sealife too - octopus, lobster, sea horse, starfish, sea urchins.

If you are a turtle lover like I am, this is a must see place. $3.00 and about 45 minutes is all you'll need.
