The entry is $3 US. There are a few different 'turtle pools' with various species but otherwise not much to see. There are no employees that provide education on the turtles or provide background on the purpose of the facility. And to use the bathrooms they request a donation. The view of the ocean though is beautiful. If you are... More

We spent about 45 minutes here. it was interesting but could have been made far more worthwhile if they had an informed person explaining what they do here. It needs a a bit of investment to build it into a truly educational experience.

I've always wanted to see a sea turtle and never have. I was going to the island so I googled turtles and found this place. It was 30 pesos to go. Not expensive at all. They had babies and middle sized ones. I thought it was really neat. Id go back again!

This is a good stop while driving around the island. Not too much to see and we didn't stay long, but worth the admission price and they seem to really care about the turtles. It was neat to see the turtles through so many life stages.

The turtle farm was fairly interesting although not as much to see as I thought there would be. You can get very good coffee in the gift shop.

It was amazing. Turtles in all stages of development. They are actively repopulating the area with some of the most beautiful turtles I have ever seen.

Tanks of sea turtles surrounded by tanks of a few other sea creatures (biggest Lobster I've ever seen!!). The turtles are rescued hatch-lings in various states of growth that are released in the fall. It's not a huge zoo, so don't expect that but it is something to see. It's only $3 to get in and worth every penny in... More

We didn't want to miss this spot on our day trip to Isla. Sea turtles are so cute and the kids loved seeing and feeding the turtles. We learned, we laughed and we loved the hour or so we spent there. We went on the morning and missed the heat of the afternoon.

We stopped and toured the facility and although there is not much there to see, it was worth seeing none the less. The cost to get in was not very much, from what I remember it was about MXN 30 Pesos.
