Okay let me settle the matter, as a naturalist the idea was great, execution not so much. Currently it is clean and they had some hatchlings in a small pool. There is no signs to inform you of what..... more »
The turtles are pretty cool to see and interact with. The downside of coming here is that it is pretty free flowing and somewhat unorganized. What I mean is if you come here don’t expect a personal tour guide or staff waiting to meet you whenever you arrive on site. You will have to make the experience what you want to get out of the experience, so you’ll have to ask questions in order to learn. Overall, it was a rewarding experience.
It was a very good experience and the staff was very knowledgeable about the turtles and their care. The area was safe and staff was also very welcoming and friendly.
