  • I loved the design, beautiful the awareness of locals and tourists, and loved to know more about the turtles. Did the tour with Rodrigo, a baby friendly that gave us more knowledge. Thanks, TAMAR!

  • Very nice to visit. We did a tour in the frame that looks good on the Ordinance's schedules. The cool thing is that you can go out and if you have any other activity on the same day that you want to monitor is possible or showing the stamp they put on the skin in the lobby or, if he leaves, it is possible to come back showing again your receipt of purchase. In addition to the visit to the turtles can buy separately, for U $4.00, a visit in a separate part of the site called "yellow submarine" was a great experience! It is possible to see some animals that are at the bottom, deep, sea. Wonderful service. :)

  • Would need to put references in Spanish, since not everyone knows English or Portuguese. Very nice tour
