  • Taking the road of the coast to catch the path of the wall of tears, you can take this deviation with a well-defined circuit and that does not carry more than 30 m to travel where at the end you get to the breeding Center. In the you can see many turtles, great inclusive and have a time of much enjoyment. The visit is free and in the place is shop to buy water or some ice cream.

  • Nice place to see the subject of the breeding of turtles, since they are born until they are released!
