    This place was more than once visited by us, is so beautiful and provides us with a teachable moment! The gift shop of the Tamar has beautiful mugs and helps to sustain the project, which has partnerships with schools in the region. For me to go "de São João and don't go to the Tamar.

    Important information is to pay an entrance fee to the Tamar project they stamp your hand and with that you can get in and out of the dependencies of the project during all day. We find that just when we got there late in the afternoon which was a pity. Well worth visiting the project on weekends between 16:00 and 17:00 because the 16:00 is made with the turtles and iterative feed the 16:30 feeding the sharks where they pass the hand on the sharks.
