  • This turtle village presents a multitude of turtle breeds, with shells, very different. Certainly there is also the breeding, we were able to admire, of all little babies, freshly born, but what made me capsize the heart, and see that the human is also capable, to do the maximum, in order to save the lives of these animals , damaged, by cars, cars.... Some have arrived in a pious State, the carapace half, crushed, and with the care and tranquility, found, in the Center, these old ladies, refit themselves a health, and live happy days, because many will be released in respectful corners, of their lives... Not sorry, this Center is not only for the children, but for the lovers, of the animal species.....

  • I was expecting something better... We were only 2 visitors. We did the park for us, but it's just the enclots with 3-4 turtles in it and some explanation... we'll even ask you your entry tickets to the middle of the Park to control you! In 20 minutes, the visit was folded... Good for children possibly...

  • Well kept place and knowledgeable guides
  • The only problem is you are left alone. There is no one to guide you or give you explanation. But it's good how they're taking care of the turtles and preserve them for the city and pollution. They are very well informed about they well being.
