“Always a good visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Always fun, we actually saw some baby turtles hatching while we were there. I got to hold a 5 minute old turtle. That was cool. The holding tanks were so full it looked like the babies couldnt even breath, which i felt kind of bad about, but I figured they hopefully know what they're doing there. The rescued dolphin was there and appeared to be in pretty good health. I'm glad to hear it was recently released.

We have been to the tortugranja turtle farm twice. Very interesting place, sea horses all sorts and colors of turtles. There is a shark out in the water that hides under the pier.They explain the different turtles and there history.well worth the $3.

“Great value for small kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

My 3 year old's favorite part of our trip. It is free for kids under 5, a few bucks for adults and a simple pleasure for little ones. The staff was very nice and brought bay turtles, and sea stars for my kids to hold and touch. It's very simple and small.

“Turtle farm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This small turtle farm does a lot for the sea turtle population within a little space. There is a guide there to answer questions and while it is small and doesn't take all that long to view the different types of turtles under their care, I think it is important to support their work by visiting their farm. Easy to find and only few dollars.

“Neat Place!”

Very nice place to visit...especially if you have kids with you. I applaud their efforts to ensure the Sea Turtle population thrives and survives on Isla. A very up close and personal experience.
