Nice but small.

It´s a nice place to visit if you have a spare 20 - 30 minutes. You will see turtles from close-up. But its small and simple.

We stopped by the turtle farm on our golf cart tour of Isla Mujeres! After doing research before coming, I knew this was a place we had to stop and I'm so glad we did! This is a turtle sanctuary. Injured, rehabilitating or albino turtles( since they have a higher chance of death in the wild since they have no... More

We visited Isla Mujeres on a trip to Cancun. Our daughter was over the moon when she saw the turtles. Worth the $3 entrance fee.

Went here as part of our golf cart tour around the island. Entrance fee is nominal...$3 per person. You can also buy food for the turtles. Keep in mind that this place is about helping SUSTAIN the turtle population. The aquarium is an aside that draws people to spend money allowing them to do their important work. During the season...

I absolutely loved la Tortugranja! You don't see a lot of advertisements for it...but don't miss it. $3 to get in, and $1 for food to feed the little guys! This place is doing an amazing job of raising babies to adults as well as treating injured turtles with a tiny budget. I am a huge turtle lover, and it... More

We thought this might be something like a nursery for turtles but all they had there were grown turtles, caged in really small and shallow basins. Not a happy place...

We didn't know what to expect with a $3.00 charge, but we were pleasantly surprised. There were so many turtles of all sizes and color. We stayed about 45 minutes looking. There were about 9 open pools with turtles and a large area outside with the large turtles and sharks too. Worth the money.

The Tortugranja offers an up-close experience with all three types of sea turtles native to the Caribbean, plus a small aquarium with sea horses, starfish, lobster, and a number of other interesting sea dwelling creatures. It is a great little side trip on your way to Punta Sur or Castillo Garrafon. The inexpensive admission fee--30 pesos--supports the good work of... More
