You look at turtles in pens and some aquariums, not too spectacular but worth the cost ($3 USD I think). The most interesting thing are the albino and partial albino turtles that can't be released because they will die if exposed to sunlight. On of...More

Nice inexpensive facility to visit while staying on the island. It is small, informative place to learn about sea turtles and other sea animals

We rented a golf cart and we found this place by accident, the ticket price I think is $3 but it is worth it. It is fun to see the turtles in the different pools and they have a dolphin under rehabilitation.

The water in the tanks was so disgusting. Some of the animals you couldn't even see in the filthy water. Not much to see. Save your money! We felt so bad of the animals being kept in those conditions.

What an amazing animals, also the people at the turtle farm are happy to show you everything, buy a little food for the turtle, never been so close to them. Worth every minute. Highly recommend to visit this island and going to the turtle farm.

We saw several different sizes of sea turtles. There were also other creatures in the aquariums there. This place is trying to help sea turtles. They also have a dolphin. It is a great place to see the sea turtles if you can't see them...More

We were not at all impressed. The staff were dismissive, no one was available to educate you, tour you. The place was tiny, and I quite frankly felt terrible for the turtles -This is not at all what I thought it would be. I think...More

When we visited recently, we did not see any injured turtles. They did not appear to be recovering or in need of help. Are the turtles released? Are they bred in captivity? (did not see any way they could make it to sand to lay eggs)

Turtles are raised from eggs and released up to a year old. Turtles that hatch in the wild have a very low chance to survive being eaten by birds or crabs as they work their way back to the water after hatching. Also once... More

Can you actually watch turtles hatch and go to the sea like in Cozumel?

I know the babies are released already so I'm wondering if there is any left there to see when we go to Isla Mujeres in December?
