I am always sceptical about visiting conservation centres that talk about releasing animals. Most have a majority of in-house residents that don't get released but this place is very impressive. They only keep the turtles long enough to be fit and healthy and then return them to the wild. They look after new hatchlings for about a month so they... More

This place is not so popular tourist attraction but the visit there is worth it. They are saving the lives of the wounded turtles and heal them. After they are okay they are realesed back to the ocean.

I can see the point in breeding these turtles, but as for true other animals... they looked sad. We paid for the trip and didn't pay a donation because we were told not to by our guide. The guy showing us around took us around the side of a cage (being discreet) and told us that we need to tip... More

Please visit this place to support their action to save the turtles. It is a hatching place and they also rescue bigger turtles that got caught in a Fisher net or ate plastic for example. Once they are back to health, they are released into the wild. There is no entrance fee and for a small donation you can adopt... More

The conservation site is a good way of extending efforts to conserve and save our wildlife. The Turtle releasing activity is fun! We were given one turtle each, and instructions on how to release. The release looked like a race because we wanted our turtles to go to the ocean immediately. By the way we even named our Turtle Darina... More

It took our taxi driver a while to fine the TCEC but once we did we were greeted by a very nice guide who spoke excellent English. All the older turtles that are there are on rehab, and they release every turtle back to the ocean at some point. There are hundreds of baby turtles that you can adopt for... More

Firstly, to the people writing negative reviews about animal cruelty and harassing photographers.. Make sure you write your review on the right page! TCEC has no monkey's, snakes, owls or any other kind of animals. They only have sea turtles and a few land turtles. All the turtles I saw were kept in large tanks with flowing water and plenty...

This is a great conservation center and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It's free to enter the education center if you just want to walk around and learn about the wonderful work they do there. There are a variety of different sea turtles to view and learn about, you can even feed some of the fresh water turtles. You can... More

The place was a bit difficult to find because it doesn't have much funds and is not well sign posted. We completely missed the large turtle statue outside of it. They can give you basic info, that you can read up better on your own before going down. The fun part is in seeing different types of turtles they have,... More

First impressions upon arriving were that it looked rundown, but quickly I warmed to this charming attraction. We were greeted at the entrance by a friendly young gent who went on to walk us round the entire centre,explaining what they do and answering all questions we had. You quickly make your way around the entire thing, but for a free... More
