My daughter, 2 and 1/2 year old grandson, and I recently visited the tortuga farm while we were cruising around the island on a golf cart. At only 3 US dollars apiece, it was well worth the price of admission. They give you a small...More

Nothing too exciting. I was hoping we would be able to hold the turtles like most turtle farms I've been to but you aren't allowed to touch them. It was kind of sad and the turtles all looked like they were trying to escape. Turtles...More

If you like turtles then take a few minutes and stop here. It's a $3 entrance fee and they offer turtle food for an additional fee. For us, it was worth stopping for a few minutes but we were slightly disappointed that there wasn't any...More

Its a small sanctuary for turtles and other sea animals. They keep it clean and its very much accessible with a golf cart. If you plant to visit punta sur you will definitely see this plave on your way.

Tortugranja was an amazing experience! We had a wonderful time. The turtles were fantastic and so were the workers. The price was great. We will definitely be back!

When we visited recently, we did not see any injured turtles. They did not appear to be recovering or in need of help. Are the turtles released? Are they bred in captivity? (did not see any way they could make it to sand to lay eggs)

I know the babies are released already so I'm wondering if there is any left there to see when we go to Isla Mujeres in December?
