Turtles are so cute.

The turtles and bullsharks were interesting to see. The aquarium would let you feed and hold them although only the baby ones as the bigger ones would get a way to quickly, The... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

parking (even for a golf cart) was limited. The ticket booth was a small kiosk and I don't know that they really paid attention to holders. There is an area inside where you can see the babies as they grow into adult, there were even a few white (I don't think albino) turtles out side there was a fenced area... More

Worth popping in to see the turtles of various shapes, sizes and colours. If feeling brave you can hold a few of the other water creatures (not for me!). Contained in a small covered area and a number of outdoor areas. Head to the end of the small pier and see the largest turtles living happily with what appeared to... More

The turtles and bullsharks were interesting to see. The aquarium would let you feed and hold them although only the baby ones as the bigger ones would get a way to quickly, The turtles are so huge and also so little.

Neat little find out the beaten path. Probably worth the three bucks to get in. Not much of a facility. No toilet seats on the toilets and no toilet paper. Would not intentionally seek this place out but worth the time if you happen to be in the area.

Enjoyed seeing the turtles but there wasnt really any information about why the larger turtles were there or if and when they would be released. The man working there was very interactive and showed us some crabs and sea snails. It was good feeding the turtles and they had some tanks of fish but after an hour we were done.... More

We visited earlier this week and really enjoyed our visit! We hired a golf cart for the day (but you could do half a day) to do a tour of the island. $3us each to get in to Tortugranja and you can buy food if you want to, which we did. I think there could have been more information about... More

If you're looking for a fun, quick activity this is a great option. There are three separate areas with turtle tanks, and for a few extra pesos. You can even see where the turtle eggs are being held to hatch, which was very cool. Be sure to spend time checking out the turtles by the dock. They are massive and... More

I was really saddened when I came here. Grown turtles are kept in bare tanks with barely enough room to swim. Some are kept here for 7 years to help educate people and then are released. Once you see the state and size of the tanks they live in for so long you will see that there is no way... More

It is worth a quick stop. We spent 1 hr here because it was too hot. Nice place to see the turtle but the outside is beautiful. There is a little walkway that you can walk out to see the big turtles enclosed in the sea. There are also rays and fish swimming around in the area. Bring pesos, it... More

Have never seen so many turtles at one place! So happy we rented a golf cart to discover the island more. Plenty of parking and signage was good. For a small charge, it was a self-guided tour of tanks full of turtles inside and out. There is a small café with bathrooms and a sink to wash your hands if... More
