Very clear rules for visiting the whole project or only the souvenir shop. This time I would like to check the store only and I had no problems to explain it to and have my entrance granted;

Doing a great job in protecting Turtles all along the Brazilian coast. They gather up the eggs to make sure that as many turtles hatch out as possible and it is interesting to see the different species that they have in the pools.

My son loved to see all the turtles at Projeto Tamar, and I am glad I went there. They are doing an amazing job and if you happen to go to Praia Do Forte I suggest you to check it out.

We had an English speaking guide who was good, but at least half the info was on English language signs, so you could just turn up and go. If you are planning to go on your own check when feeding times and shows are on in advance, as it is only somewhere to spend 1-1.5 hours unless you see something... More

This was the third projeto Tamar that i visited (the other were Fernando de Noronha and Florianopolis). This one is the best located and very attractive for kids. Worth a visit.

It's great to see the work they are doing here for the sea turtles, right on the beach front I think it was 16reais for the entrance fee and if you arrive at 1030 it's feeding time and they tell you about the turtles, a lovely day

There's no big technology envolved in the attraction. But was very nice to see the beautiful work of creating a environmental consciousness they are doing with the local population and all the visitors. The place is simple, but clean and the shop has very nice things.

Projeto Tamar is a great experience for kids and adults alike. Try to visit during feeding hours (15h30 in the afternoon), so as to guarantee great pictures. The guided tour for no extra cost is preferable, as information provided is quite curious.

Head out in the morning (around 10) to check out the turtle feedings and lighthouse. My husband and I really enjoyed learning more about this project, but unfortunately, couldn't do more than reading and looking at the turtles, as the tours weren't in English.

First the cost to get in is $30 real per person. Second, there was no where in the project where you could touch/hold/get a picture with a sea turtle. I saw many reviews with that and spend $60 real to get in and it was basically a tiny zoo of a few turtles. I would recommend not wasting your time... More
