  • Local Ocean Conservation is a place run by an NGO. It features an exhibition, a guided tour and a rescue center for sea turtles that were injured or are sick. Here they are helped until being ready.....  more »
  • Nice place and guide but not for a group of adults. Good family activity for the kids. They seem to do a good job with the turtles!  more »

  • Good experience for both adults and kids... learn a lots about sea turtles. Do not expect to see a turtle everytime you go there as it's mainly a hospital for turtles and protection of the eggs to be able to have a chance to go to maturity. They work hard to protect those animals and also educate people. Good job. 👍
  • It's so great that this place exists. Absolutely must see. Truly meaningful job.
