We arrived there after a 30+ minutes trek on the beautiful nature boardwalk. When we arrived, there was no one there to greet us, nothing really to read. Just land tortoises separated into different enclosures by size. We were very underwhelmed and do not recommend this to anyone really, preferring instead to see them in their natural habitat as we... 更多
It's a must see attraction at Isabela. It's the only place where you will find hundreds of turtles in the same place in Isabela. It's good for a family trip
The breeding center's mission is to make sure the tortoise population increases to a viable number so they can maintain this in the wild. You will see various size tortoises and learn about the mission and process. When big enough they are released into the wild. It isn't flashy but it is educational and there isn't a charge. It is... 更多
From itty bitty babies to HUGE 100+year old big guys, this was a great experience! One of the workers let me get into a pen with the big tortoises to help with feeding time and it was SO COOL! I never thought I would experience so many tortoises in one place. Not to be missed!
Loads of turtles! You can get very close to them and the shaded area is a nice place to spend a relaxing afternoon. Lots of information on tortoises and informative local people willing to share info. There is even ice cream for sale nearby. You can also take a beautiful wooden boardwalk that leads you through interesting plants and flamingos,... 更多
We were at the Centro de Crianza Arnaldo Tupiza when Torres says were released. It was exciting to see the tortoise is being taken from captivity into trucks to then be helicoptered and released in nature. What a wonderful facility. What a great experience for the children to see this.
At the end of the day, I'm not enthralled with tortoises. They are interesting, but I don't love them. That being said, this was the most interesting spot to look at tortoises I stopped at. The center is well laid out. It is informative and interesting. I walked here from town, and the walk on the boardwalk was also very... 更多
Our guide got the staff to show us tortoises that were in gestation and a newly born one as well. It is great to learn how the tortoises breed and are kept until they are strong enough to move to the other islands. The feeding of the young tortoises is interesting to see. The walk to get here from town... 更多
I walked here from the main town. It's about a 40 minute walk through the boardwalk. The centre isn't too big and filled with baby and adult tortoises. I got to see 2 young tortoises fight which was very cute. It's free so good for a cheap morning or afternoon.
Go to the end of Puerto Villamil, just past Iguana Crossing and turn right to walk down the boardwalk. Continue on the walk to the end. You will pass sea iguanas and a number of ponds that have flamingos. The walk itself takes maybe 30-40 minutes, but it is very pretty and well worth it. Be careful with the ‘little... 更多
