This is a place where your faith in humankind is reloaded. These people search for turtle nests in danger and they move the eggs here and take care of them until they hatch. You can see their growth for one year along the pools. You can see turtles that are a few hours old until they are about 10-12 months... More

The marine biology station is located on a beautiful cayo in the national park. After paying a fee (which is extremely cheap) the guide gives information about the four species of turtles that can be seen on the park, the protection of the nests and eggs and then a tour around the tanks with the little ones that they keep...

Short visit to a scientific foundation to understand how is our world destroying wildlife. The place is old and not well mantained, but at least they care about nature. For less than 5 €, you can sponsor and name one of the turtles that will be set free in the future and get a t-shirt. Special visit for kids!

The scientists running the Marine Biology Station take care of newly-hatched endangered turtles (the green and the loggerhead) and two species of critically endangered sea turtles (the hawksbill and the leatherback), all...
