The turtles that were in el Puertito have been relocated to an inaccessable place between Los Cris and Palm Mar by Siam Park staff for their own wellbeing. I've been their on a friends dive boat and had up to 4 swimming round the boat. Apparently still being fed (now by the dive boats) which was why they were moved in the first place.

Thanks for that, I must say seeing them being fed always concerned us as it would eventually bring them into more human contact, and make them vulnerable to the idiots.

We understood that because of the alterations at various locations, like San Juan where there has been artificial reefs made, there isnít the feedstuff for the turtles, so they have gone and are round El Puertito.

I may be misinformed, but I heard that feeding the turtles was banned for some reason about two years ago, which would explain their absence.  My son and grandaughter used to enjoy swimming with the turtles.

We always enjoyed seeing the turtles in Alcala but when weíve been there the last couple of years have not spotted any.
A lady used to come and feed them fish, we presumed she was from the wet fish shop, but donít see her either, anyone spotted any in the harbour area recently?

I have just gone through exactly the same experience as Tanemara with the same incredibly helpful pharmacy. Even when the details on the prscription were wrong from the health centre in P.S. twice, they phoned them and obtained the information needed. I cannot givr anything but praise for the ladies who work in there.

Victor M - it is a few years since we went through this process but we did not pay anything, either to the doctor or the pharmacy.  In fact, we went to the pharmacy on the hill down to Puerto Santiago, before we registered at the Health Centre, and asked for the medication prescribed by our UK doctor.  They were happy to let us have it for the sum of Ä120 but suggested we register with the Health Centre and come back with a prescription, which is what we did.  The pharmacist even offered to let us have the medication and pay for it and promised to refund the cost when we had registered and obtained the prescription.  How helpful is that?

Looking at the live webcam sited on LG Hotel it looks really windy.
