The baby turtles are absoluely adorable! The larger ones are really interesting to watch. The facility survives on donations so it isn't very fancy. There are cold drinks and a few other things in the little gift shop. Depending on the season, it is $2-3 entry fee. You can stay as long as you want but we had seen it... More

We got off the ferry from Cancun and rented a golf cart. We had no particular destinations except one. My wife said this was a must see. I couldn't agree more. It's not flashy or extravagant at all, and you may drive right by it. We bought "turtle food" when we got there and went in. There were various sizes... More

Awesome little stop as you travel around the island. Very interesting to see the varios turtles up close at all ages. Could have used a few more signs to assist with education about the process. Overall, more than worth th 30 pesos entrance fee.

Not very large or sophisticated, but still worth the 30 peso entrance. Stop on your way to Punta Sur. Another great way to support the locals and take in an experience you won't find just everywhere.

This was great fun. We really enjoyed seeing all the turtles, especially all the little ones. There was a tank with hundreds of baby turtles in it. They tell you not to touch them, but the turtles were in easy reach, and they were sooo cute! It was hard to resist the temptation to pick up those cute little guys... More

Ok for a quick stop on the road but was pretty run down and sad. The turtles were all packed in small enclosures and they We're pretty old. Whilst it was nice to see the turtles up close it felt sad at the same time how they were kept.

If you love Turtles, this is a must do. They have many of all stages. Be sure to save some of the food (20 pesos) , for the big guys all the way at the back, including the box turtles. I ran out & had to get more for the big guys in the back tank. I watched the guy... More

A quick stop to see lots of turtles and a few aquariums with things like lobsters, stonefish, and a type of stingray. One small area you can hold a few things like starfish, conch sea snail, urchins, and a horseshoe crab. Paying in pesos gets you in for about $2 instead of $3, so get pesos at your hotel. Outside,...

While my understanding is that these people are doing good work preserving the turtle population, it was really only a 10-15 minute stop to do a quick walk around, really not that much to see. Was interesting to see the pools full of hundreds of baby turtles, but also a little sad to see so many in captivity, although they... More
