The turtle reserve is nice to visit, it lacks a bit of explanation though.

Amazing place! It can be reached by an easy walk along boardwalk and trails (all conveniently marked). We saw flamingos and many other birds on our walk there. When we arrived, tortoises were mating and drawing quite a crowd! Lots of tortoises of varying sizes who seem very happy. Free entrance.
Fantastic reserve and well done for saving those wonderful tortoise. An easy walk from town, or take a taxi and walk back along the boardwalk and maybe see some flamingo’s. One of the best things to do in Puerto Villamil and it is free! Don’t forget to walk up the road 250 m to see some more flamingo’s
