The turtle sanctuary was literally next door to Islam Mujeres Palace. The cost is just $3 plus a bag of food. It's for a good cause. Very educational with turtles growing at various stages of their lifestyle. There is a nurse shark there, though we...More
Hey peeps cool out, take the Isla mindset, the deal was 30 peso's, thats a buck n a half this aint Xcaret for 120 USD for the day, chill out and enjoy this is the Mexican Gov't ran turtle farm not a for profit exhibit.
Title says it all. Lots of turtles in small enclosures. You can’t touch anything, but the kids loved it. $3 a person, so worth it. Go a block down the beach to the right to have an encounter with a BIG nurse shark
This place is appalling! Filthy, dirty tanks full of beautiful turtles barely able to move - just cruel. Aside from that horror the entire place is disgustingly dirty. STAY AWAY and don’t bring your kids please.
I heard that the program stops on October 15. Does that mean it closes, or can you still go see the baby turtles after that? Thanks.

The turtle farm is open all year. There may be no baby turtle releases after mid-October but again, there may be, as there have been only a few so far this year as compared to many more in past years.

Hi, My friend and I are debating between going to Exuma or Cancun (Playa Del Carmen) between 3/21-3/27. I'm interested in clear blue (warm) waters, fun activities, great snorkeling, and swimming with turtles, whale sharks and dolphins. I've put together a sample itinerary, but am not sure if it's too much (not sure if I'm alloting enough time to get to different places). Are there colorful reefs to snorkel or dive at? I notice some places don't have colorful reefs, but it seems Cancun...More
