  • $3 US for adults to get in, eight year old was free. Turtles kept in circular tanks, and you get a bag of food to feed them with your admission. Far away from the ferry landing and we took a taxi to g...  more »

  • They may have saved the turtles and dolphin here, but they were crowded together and the whole effect was rather depressing.  more »

  • I really enjoyed this place. I have never been so close to sea turtles. I took some great photos.
  • We visited in April 2017. They charge $50 pesos to enter or $3usd. It's not a very large area, includes small indoor aquarium with a couple fish and some younger turtles in small pools. Outside they have larger pools with some bigger turtles and then an enclosed beach section with a few large turtles. I recommend NOT buying any food for the turtles, it's an additional cost and turtles didn't even like it, probably because tons of people feed them throughout the day. We ended up only spending about 30 min here and wasn't the best experience.
  • These turtles are not injured, they are not being rehabilitated, they are simply trapped. The dolphin they have has a scarred nose from trying to get out. No one is watching the tourists and keeping them from picking up the turtles, which happened several times while i was there. It was very sad to watch, there are no educated people spreading awareness or conservation efforts. This is a tourist trap at the expense of the animals.
  • Great turtle farm to explore! 3$ to get in and self exploration, Beautiful scenery and supporting the release of turtles!
  • The attendants were very nice, and although it was great to see the turtles and see some albino tortoises it needed bigger tanks for the turtles to swim. This is a rehabilitation place for the turtles from what I understood but still could use a larger tank. I did enjoy seeing them up close though because I do not snorkel.
