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.

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...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....More
