Mexican Turtle Center

Centro Mexicano de la Tortuga

The Mexican Turtle Center in Mazunte is a center, aquarium, and research institute that shelters all five sea turtle species inhabiting Mexico, plus two land species and 16 more that live in fresh water. The center will teach you about the importance of conserving turtles in their habitat and how they operate turtle camps where these creatures nest.
