We have been coming to the island for 5 years and this turtle farm has gone down hill......it's ok for the price of 3 American dollars but I was disgusted at conditions turtles are living in. We were offered to buy food to feed the turtles for $1 so we figured we would get it. Upon opening the bag I... More

This was a great trip. The only thing that would have made it better was if you could pet the turtles. There were lots of turtles from all ages and sizes. We also saw a rescue dolphin that the company rescued last month, and have nursed back to health. It was inexpensive, and you can also feed the turtles which... More

We stopped by while cruising around Isla on our golf cart. It only cost $3 USD per person. There were tons of turtles, a nurse shark, dolphin, and sting ray. This is not, I repeat, THIS IS NOT a large attraction or a zoo by any means! It's a rehab center for injured turtles and animals being nursed back to... More

Stop and see the turtles. Free parking. Only $3USD per person. You can feed the turtles. There is one dolphin, too. Take your own Kleenex with you as you have to leave a tip to get toilet paper for the bathroom. Strange, I know.

Was pleasantly surprised by the visit to the Tortugranja. A good place to stop at while exploring the island. Lots of other golf carts in the parking lot. Well worth a visit, especially if you have young kids with you. Took us about 45 minutes to visit, and read the info on the different types of turtles.

This is not a huge operation, but I got to see lots of turtles and a number of different kinds. The turtle farm is self guided and takes about 30-45 minutes. I am glad I took the time to visit.

Riding around in our golf cart on Isla Mujeres, we stumbled upon Tortugranja and stopped in. It was AMAZING!!!!!! The turtles are well cared for, different types of sea turtles and loved every minute of it. Would highly recommend!!!

I loved seeing the turtles and dolphin, but it made me sad to see them enclosed and sad like that. Although it was cool to be able to touch the smaller water animals.

If you like sea turtles this should be a stop for you. We were able to view them up close in shallow pools indoors which housed smaller turtles and larger tanks that had bigger turtles outdoors. Has a gift shop and food is available for purchase to feed the turtles.
