You can see lot of Tamar Prjects in Brazil and they are saying that this one is one of the best - I can compare just with another one from Florianopolis and this is really better. But still quite small. There is lot of kind of turtles but visit this place takes like 30 min maximum.

Great to see the project has flourished in the past 15 years and having a positive impact on the numbers of young turtles surviving through... More

Apenas vá! Não é um jardim zoológico. É uma experiência. Se 1/10 da população se tornasse consciente da importância desse excelente projeto conduzido por essas pessoas, pode ser que houvesse mais equilíbrio entre o ser humano e a Natureza. E talvez menos tartarugas mortas devido à ignorância. Just go! It's not a zoo. It's an experience. If 1/10 of the... More

This place is really cool, they teach you eveything about turtles and tortoises. You can still see huge sea turtles that live there in their aquariums.

Ok, let me start by saying that I get the point of the Tamar Project, but it did not impress me. First, the fact that the pools for the turtles are small really bothered me.

It´s interesting and heartwarming to see how biologists are taking care of the marine life, saving and treating turtles and marine life already being extinct.
