  • A great place to learn about types of, the behavior, and the nesting process of sea turtles. You will also get some background information about the current development of the sea turtle population. We learned much more in this museum than on our turtle tour. I definitely recommend everybody to visit this place. Hopefully, it becomes more popular. From our group only the two of us went.
  • Explains everything that people need to know how to help conserve one of the world's most essential creatures.
  • Interesting and worthy work that these people do. They are clearly passionate and we should support them. Expect a video and a QA session with a worker. It's not too much but I really enjoyed it.
  • An incredible place. Once of the best places that I have ever been too.
  • Small nice museum with one room, where is lot of information about Tortuguero animals especially turtles. Also there is small cinema, where you should see film. Entrance was 5 USD.
