  • There's not much to see, just a few turtles and rays in aquariums. The high point is the moment you remove the little turtles eggs. Small, but the project itself is beautiful and essential to the survival of sea turtles.

  • Too full, you have to "fight" to get child participate in activities many people, stress the taratarugas sure. I know I need the $, but tourists should restrict the contact and serve more as even Museum.

  • We did the tour of the Tamar project with Milla and everything was great. Love, it is worth! Maybe later we'll see turtles being loose, because it has a chance to open up a nest.
