Property Information:

The Turtle Project started as a government run hatchery in 2001. In 2006 it was adopted by a local chalet resort, Juara Lagoon. In 2008 Juara Lagoon joined with current directors to create a conservation and environmental effort, which involves tourists, visitors, volunteers, schools and the local community.

The real difference in staying here is, it's not just a place to stay, it's a place to get involved in.

This is a research and nature conservation center with a working-hostel, so by coming here we expect that you want to get involved and help out !

Staying here includes: accommodation w WIFI, conservation involvement, instruction, full breakfast & lunch, coffee/ tea, beach patrols by boat, kayaks, snorkel equipment, tools and materials for projects, laundry, dvd's, library and much more.

Naturally there is a large beach, food garden and fish pond, large community area, kitchen, laboratory area, workshop, waterfall jungle treks

We purposefully do not have: a pool, satellite TV, bar, karaoke, parties, blinking lights etc.

    Fantastic hostel by the beach, good food for breakfast and lunch. Good wifi, however the free wifi does attract ALOT of locals who kind of hang around in the hammocks and particularly late at night can make a fair bit of noise.
