  • Good experience for both adults and kids... learn a lots about sea turtles. Do not expect to see a turtle everytime you go there as it's mainly a hospital for turtles and protection of the eggs to be able to have a chance to go to maturity. They work hard to protect those animals and also educate people. Good job. 👍
