Visit Sea Turtle Hatchery, whose aim is to protect the endangered species of turtles that call Cuba home. The hatchery collects eggs from vulnerable beaches, raises the baby turtles to a specific point of development, and then releases them safely back into the sea. You can participate in this occasion alongside the experts. Learn about the work undertaken here, or touch some of the turtles swimming in the pools. You can also book a guided nighttime turtle-watching excursion. Add Sea Turtle Hatchery and other attractions to your Cayo Largo trip itinerary using our Cayo Largo trip generator.
