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

Well worth a few minutes of your time while on the Island. It's easy to get here via taxi or golf cart with plenty of parking. There's a small charge to enter but a cool place to see turtles of all shapes and sizes. It's really a self guided tour with some placards for education but don't expect to be... More

We stopped in while visiting on Isa Mujeres and it was well worth our time. The cost is only $30 peos (less than $3 USD) each. You can also purchase turtle food for $2 pesos. There were lots of different kinds of turtles to see in all colors and sizes. There is also a touch tank in the back that... More

We were amazed by the amount of turtles! Hatchlings, younger ones, older ones, black ones, white ones, brown ones...great for kids as they get to see turtles up close in the pools. Take a walk down the jetty to view bigger turtles in a more natural environment.

Wow, we had a hands on experience! We where the first customers of the day. So we where lucky to walk in on the staff, he graciously let us hold an urchin, touch the turtle , and a crab. Very cool,oh and a very unusual pointy urchin.

Six of the seven species of sea turtle can be found in Mexico . Many are endangered. This place is awesome because they take the newly laid eggs and raise them until the baby turtles can be released back into the wild. The exhibit is small here but well set up for its size and location. It's so cheap to... More

This place was cool. Very small. It's a mini aquarium and they have mostly turtles. The place is not in the main town of Isla mujeras, it's off the beaten path, but it's a fun ride to get to there. It's just a cute little aquarium, but it's worth it to go because it's so cheap.

Only $30 pesos each to enter, very basic, but worth an hour's visit. Make this part of your island golf cart tour!

Inside are ranks with smaller turtles & some other fish. Outside are the larger turtles, and some eggs too. It wasn't a long tour, and not a formal tour - more like a stop at a turtle farm.
