The Turtle habitat at Praia do Forte was amazing! We saw giant turtles in an awesome setting by the beach.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2015

There was no English Guide which made the communication quite difficulg.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2013

Informative. Skip the meal plan. Very disappointing food and service. Too much time spent in the Tamar project village as a tourist trap. Not enough beach time.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2012

the Praia do Forte is only a very small zoo. Nicely doin ebut not very exciting. The rest of the day is spend in a tourist village and on a beach. It would have been better if this trip is combined with something really interesting. not very advisable.
