    It is a park that has potential but it seems a bit neglected, perhaps in summer look better. It is a good choice to go with guys but the price is really too expensive.

    I was the long weekend, the truth is that very expensive for what it is. All old, abandoned. The patio of meals expensive and bad food. The shows are not continued by what you have to make time to see them. Very careless. The truth that would that leave much less for the service they provide.

    Entry is somewhat expensive but is well-kept and is beautiful for strolling. The shows are very entertaining and confectionery prices are quite accessible for lunch.

    Very expensive and many of the exhibits were closed. We weren't allowed on the beach where our children wanted to play in the rock pools but weren't allowed. The shark section which had been heavily advertised was closed. Half of the aquariums were empty. The outside children's play area was a plastic, broken slide. The dolphin show however was very good. We complained and asked to write in the complaints book. They then provided us with a free lunch which began to make up for it but when you're paying such high prices for entry you expect more.

    Help! Abandoned Park. Zero maintenance, there are a few animals lost out there. The entrance charge it as if it were Disney(475 pesos!!!), and eating is a luxury few at those prices... a miracle that the spectacle of the dolphins is so cute, the only and the best.
