This was my second visit to Tortugaranja (first was in 2011). I appreciate all of the work they do to help the sea turtles - they relocate the nests so that they are safe, and hatch the turtles out there, then raise them and release them. They have some permanent residents who are unable to be released, as well as... More

Interesting and inexpensive little place to visit, especially for the kids. The teenagers in our family were only interested for about 15 minutes before they were ready to leave. They have aquariums inside, and some outside, with all sizes of sea turtles. You can buy food (pellets) to feed the turtles but I think they should limit how much food... More

I thought this place would be more focused on preservation of the turtles. But there were large tanks of tons of baby turtles that lots of people were touching and holding (even though there were large signs that said "don't touch the turtles"). No one was there to tell them to stop touching and holding the poor turtles. They also... More

Only $3 US to get in and worth it when you see what they are doing there. It's good to see places like this trying to help the sea turtles.

This was so much fun and totally worth the $3 I think it was to get in. They had lots of turtles you could see very closely and the tank of all the babies was so cute.

Small place, but it's the concept that matters and what you are supporting here - you can also get information about when they release the babies on the beach and participating.

This is definitely a place to stop while golf carting around the island and it is inexpensive too. We had a lot of fun filming and taking pictures of the turtles. And after we fed the turtles inside we discovered more outside so save some food for them if you go here. It is a small turtle sanctuary but it... More

The modest price of admission goes to a good cause, and you can get up close to turtles and other sea life. I think children really enjoy this simple, fun environment. Well worth the time if you have it.
