Nice to see turtles up close

The exhibit is really tiny, but you get to see a good number of turtles in different size up close. Hire a colf car and go there!

Not much to see, but very cool. Only 30p entrance fee! And 30p for a big bag of food! Lots of tanks inside, a few outside and a gated off section in the water with nurse sharks turtles and sting rays in!

This is a really great little sea turtle sanctuary. You pay a small fee, grab some turtle food, and get to feed grumpy turtles. The money is for a good cause and and it's pretty cool to be able to see so many turtles up close. There are bigger turtles outside next to an area where they have turtle nests... More

Took ferry from Cancun (Puerta Carocal) to Isla Mujeres. $20 USD each person round trip. And well worth it. Rented a golf cart for $17 USD/hour to drive around the entire island. That was fun. You drive on the roads with the cabs, bikes, policia, and everything. No hassle from the local police! The cabs will pass you very close,... More

Take a taxi or rent a golf cart and head to Tortugranja. It cost's about $3 to get in and you get to see these amazing creatures up close and personal. Hard to imagine a better value!

We had a great time here! It is a nice cheap excursion to do on the trip. When you purchase your tickets, you can also purchase some food for the turtles, which was a lot of fun. There is a building that has turtles as well as aquariums of different animals, and there is also a small enclosure in the... More

Since we already paid $57 for 3 r/t to the island and rented a $40 golf cart might as well spend the $ to see the turtles. Had we known that the giant sea turtles come in every night after midnight on to the beaches to lay their eggs we would not have bothered. We saw four our second night... More

A nice little place to visit. It really helps if you know the language. There was a spot where you could hold some sea life. I would have loved to either have signs in Spanish/English or a bi-lingual attendant who could have explained things to us.

This small but fun place is worth a stop. They have many types of turtles on display, as well as aquariums displaying other local species. They have a fun older man watching over a small touch pool who delights kids of all ages with the horseshoe crab, seeing what is inside a conch shell and pulling baby turtles out of... More
