Great stop to understand the fauna of the area. Recommend for kids as a break from the beach circuit in Porto de Galinhas. The exposition is short and focused on the hippocampus found in the area. Volunteers are there to teach about these interesting animals.

It is a unique experience to visit the place, see all those sea horses together and know about the project in studying and preserving the animals.

Olá, uma dúvida: qual a melhor forma de ir da Vila de Porto de Galinhas até o projeto Hipocampus? Evitar o custo de pegar um guia só para isso, pagar apenas a entrada. Tem como ir de van de Porto até o projeto? Alguém que tenha feito poderia dar a luz?! Obrigado
