This is great if you're in cayo Largo make sure to go, you can feed the turtles and take them!!!! The hole family loved it. Once you've paid once you can go back, it's only one pesos by person!!!!

Waling distance from Sol Pelicano. Great place to view crocs and lizards. It is also the nursery for all the plantings at the hotel. A visit to this area lasts about 30 min.
