For about 20 pesos you can support an active turtle sanctuary and see all life phases of the turtles along with some other creatures. Worth the trip.

Definitely a good stop for a short break. Very inexpensive and the baby turtles are incredible. This will only take 20 minutes and well worth the stop

On our day trip from Cancun we stopped in for a quick tour for info on the turtle preservation efforts (especially since the hotels on the Cancun beach have the turtle hatching pens). $3.00 entry and a buck for some food pellets was worth it...More

Small, but reasonably priced and worth a visit. Only plan on spending an hour or so, and go earlier in the day or the turtles won't be hungry, since food is so cheap and everyone feeds them.

Inexpensive ($3 USD) way to get an up close view of sea turtles - big and small. Tanks are filled with newly hatched and adult turtles. Not a large place - several tanks and aquariums. Entertaining way to spend about an hour

Cost is 30 pesos to enter - they have baby turtles you can handle - all sorts of different turtles - enjoyed it.

I believe so. We were there during the hatching season and rose occur throughout various locations and not just here. It is a simple museum of local animals and was fun. Keep your expectations low as this is mot an aquarium
