Sea turtle hatchery is a lovely place to visit in Cayo Largo. Our children had a great time being in touch with little turtles.

zero experience here. No interaction from the guy who took our money about he turtles in any way, sharp or form. Would have been nice to hear about what was going on there, rather than walk around a bunch of turtle pools.

Children and adults alike can learn a few things here. The little baby turtles are very cute to hold.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hatchery. Learned so much, the owner spent a great deal of time with us and answered all our questions. He's very sincere and loves what he does.

Such an amazing experience to be able to see turtles at a year old up close and personal. The hatchlings were amazing and the staff working take pride in their job and the wonderful work that they are doing there! Will visit again and bring a donation of sea turtle food to the island from home. Worth the trip into... More

Based on our experience, this is the best (well, about the only...) attraction in Cayo Largo. We enjoyed seeing the baby turtles at various development stages, listening to the clear explanations of the staff person etc. We learned about the rescue program on different species of turtles... The area is very small and you can complete the visit in 10... More

We have been lucky some years and seen the sea turtles hatching at hotel and running across the beach to the sea. Its amazing. Here at the hatchery, they have some rescued turtles and lots of babies at various ages to see. Its very basic and simple setup but fascinating.
