  • We stopped by for about 45 minutes and it was a really cool experience to get that close to the turtles. The extra 30 peso for the food was worth it for some cool shots but might not be worth it other...  more »
  • The way these large turtles are overcrowded into tiny shallow tanks is really upsetting. WE were told the turtles were rehabilitating for 3 months, but we didn't buy the story. None of the many turtle...  more »
  • This isn't Sea World or some big budget amusement park, but it's clean and well cared for and there are a lot of sea turtle in tanks with crystal clear water. There's also a sea pen for the larger tur...  more »

  • My wife insists we stop here so our friends can see this place. Last friend we took walked in the marine display building and came out in less than 2 minutes... said "Where's the interesting stuff"? I said "That was it" Don't remember any of our friends being impressed with this place.
  • Great place to visit sea turtles. I've never seen so many sea turtles at once, it was a great experience to get to know the different kind of turtles. There are also a couple fish tanks with some cool looking fish. Admission is 30 pesos per person, which is not too bad considering what these guys are doing to help preserve these animals. Would recommend if it is on ur way and have a golf cart.
  • Nice to see sea turtles up close. You can buy pellets at the entrance to feed them. The place is small. Entrance fee is about £1.10. The environment for the turtles seems a little small. Larger turtles outside around the back of the building.
  • This was a nice place to visit. It's very inexpensive and if you have little kids, it's a good place to spend some time. Staff is friendly and you get up close and personal with the various ocean life. It's cute to see the turtles at different stages...the little guys to the very big guys!
  • They are doing good work here. Protecting sea turtles for future generations. Its not the most state of the art place but still nice none the less
