The entrance fee is minimal and for a few pesos you can buy turtle food. They have several tanks with turtles at different ages. Also some pens are inside one building if weather is bad and others on the outside.

We rented a golf cart for the day to explore the island. On our way back to the ferry I found this stop on TripAdvisor and we decided to go. It’s only $3 but worth it to see these beautiful turtles up close. Stop doesn’t...More
