The Turtle farm is a fun place to see

Even though I think this is a must see as it supports the turtles, it will only take about an hour of your time. Many turtles to see!

It's easy to get to. Cheap to get in. There is no need to buy food for the turtles. Good opportunity to see baby turtles. Other than that, there is nothing much to do/see

This is a very small place and will take about 20 minutes max to make your way through the place. Tanks are small and only a few varieties to look at. No touching, of course. If you go in the afternoon, do not bother buying the food. They are over fed and food is just floating around the tanks. There... More

You can tell that the island really cares about the native turtles! When we first visited the Tortugranja was very small and hidden away. Now there is this new facility where you can see where the turtle eggs are buried, the babies raised and the different species that are in the waters around the island. You can feed the grown...

This is a small sanctuary for turtles. Not very big and not much to do. They do have a lot of turtles though. You can buy food to feed them. I recommend going early for that since by late morning they're all full and not very interested in your food. They have a few other sea creatures as well. It's... More

This place was really neat! They rescue turtle eggs and allow them to hatch in a secure pen. Then they put the babies in little swimming pools and move them to bigger ones as they grow up, eventually going outside to a pen in the ocean. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this place!

This was our second trip to the Tortuga (sea turtle) sanctuary, having returned after 10 years, this simple attraction did not disappoint! For a small $3 fee, visitors will casually walk through a building that houses several chest high, open air tanks that contain varying sizes and types of sea turtles, as well as aquarium's built into the walls that...

Stopped here for a quick visit during a tour of the island. Admission is $3 and a small bag to feed the turtles is $2. Very small place but interesting to see baby turtles, various turtles and varieties of fish and crabs. Don't forget there are more turtles outside in pools. There were no turtle eggs outside since the baby... More

The baby turtles were so cool to watch. They were moving so fast it was messing with my vision. The extra large turtles were also very cool to see
