“They have a small water park here. I wouldn't recommend diving with the turtles. The water can get murky depending on the time of year. I'm not sure you can hold the turtles any longer. They used to allow, but I think they've stopped. It is however a cool place to have some food (bar food), and check out the baby turtles. They have a lagoon filled with massive turtles. The kids can feed them too. Might be pricy, but a cool place for the kids to go.”
