Please stop by the Sanctuary during your visit to this beautiful island. A small donation will show you a very special program that is so important to the survival of Sea Turtles. If you are travelling to Cayo Largo please consider taking turtle food with you to donate!!
Please email me at tlravior@mail.com and I can arrange to get you some free food to take to them if you are departing from Toronto. They are in great need!!

The Hatchery is well worth the visit. You get to see Turtles from Just hatchlings to adult! The guy that runs this Hatchery is full of knowledge. We spent about 2 hours with him one day, learning all about various kinds of Sea Turtles. Each time I visit Cayo Largo, I always make it a point to check out the Turtles

We visited whilst waiting for another place to open. Glad we did. The gentleman who runs this place is very passionate about what he is doing. Only 2 CUC to enter, it is well worth the money (give a little more if you can). We got to hold and pet the Sea turtles. We were explained how to handle the turtles to calm them, and then shown some eggs etc. Really enjoyed the visit.

This attraction is small but it is vital. The caretakers are really proud of the work they do. Make sure you contribute to the effort of saving these babies.

We were very surprised and pleased with the Sea Turtle Hatchery. The man was very informative, it was a great experience! We even got to hold the turtles, the 1 turtle even swam over to us :)
