    Had a great time learning about and seeing the Caicos Conch Farm! It is a little hard to find and there is a fee for the tour, but we found it to be a great addition to our adventure.  more »

    Nice place to visit. The guide was very good, showing real knowledge about the farm and conchs. A pity that the place is so run down.

    We stopped here as part of our Concha Woncha tour. It was a great learning experience to see the Conch as they progress and grow. We also got to see some of the fish they farm as well. Our tour last about an hour.
