  • It seems to me that one of the activities that you should not miss in island is women. Small and large are surprised with the wonders of nature.

  • Good to go with the kids. It's small facility but well put together. Not too much to see but you can feed the turtles or attempt to as the seagulls sweep in to steal their food. Bring pesos. It's $3 US or 30 pesos which is cheaper at $1.50 valuation. This should be a great stopover in your tour of the island.
  • We were quite surprised by this place, for US$3, you got to see the Turtles being raised and protected. Very cool seeing them from young to old. It is quite a long ride by golf cart from town, but probably the highlight of the drive down for us. Highly recommended
  • Got to see some cool turtles. But wish we had seen then in the wild. Still decent fun for $30 pesos
  • Good indoor and outdoor Tortuga sanctuary for a noble (hopefully) cause. Up close views of turtles possible along with other lovely creatures.
  • Such a neat little place! Definitely buy the turtle food. It is such a cool little sanctuary!
