    Well i love animals so far that i cant really rate this place low...but I sort of wondered around lost. There wasnt like any staff around and like no tours or anything, Also, there is a part off to the side and when we started walking that way an officer appeared out of nowhere and said our bracelets werent right to go into that part of the park...ok. We did get to hold some HUGE turtles and we got to see some baby turtles!

    *Squeeeee* baby turtles!! Ok now that that's out of the way...

    Seriously I have never seen so many freaking turtles in my life! They range from babies to 20+ years old! They take in a lot of the injured turtles and nurse them back to health, in a recreation beach area, that they also use for breeding. Thats the main area when you walk in. Take a right and you'll find the most popular area, the babies. They have tanks set up from a few months to 4 years old. There is a handler for the baby babies to make sure you're being safe, but the older ones are in separate tanks by age, and if you can reach them and grab them you can pick them up and hold them.

    Continue around and you'll find bigger tanks for the bigger turtles to grow into as they get older, again sorted by age. They don't have too many super old turtles here as they do try to release them back to the wild. There is an area where you can get in the water with some younger turtles and wade around with them. It's super cool. Theres a nice park you can stroll through or picnic in behind everything thats worth checking out as well. It should totally be a stop if you're in the area, but plan on around an hour or so, as i guarentee that you'll get caught up in the cuteness!

    Visit was wonderful. Took my sisters kids. They had a extremely great time. The swim with the fish was a lot of fun. I will definitely repeat on my next visit to Island. You will also love the wide range of dishes made from turtle meat, that's if you eat meat. I am a vegetarian so food was not available.

    I really enjoyed seeing the tanks of turtles at the Turtle Farm. Each tank has turtles of a particular size. Some of these turtles are released to replenish the wild stock.

    I must qualify this review. I have not been to Grand Cayman in 20 years so I am sure a great deal has changed. But my recollections are that I had fun, plus I got to try a turtle sandwich, pretty cool.

    The turtle farm was really cool. So many turtles and we were able to touch and hold them.

    Knowing what I know now, Grand Cayman is not the spot for me.
