  • How Mar del Plata applied us a deep discount which was positive. For some years that wouldn't, but I feel that the shows have less quality and interaction than before. I rescue the food court that has very high prices. The staff is very cordial, is a good place to spend a day cloudy but without rain! PS: If you're a Mar del Plata don't forget your document.

  • Went for first time and I loved the place, very careful. Very good show of macaws, sea lions and dolphins. Has an exit to the sea. The view from there is fantastic. It has also a food court with games for children.

  • To begin with they charge you $100 for parking (outdoor) and input x $500 person... If you're going to charge that so is the park itself, I receive no parking! Expensive attractions of the place leave much to be desired, what is most worthwhile is to see the dolphins and even there, everything is a non-profit, they charge you $150 to get a photo, and the show lasts 20 minutes, missing very cool... the coaches do what they can to the very poor sea lions show and then the Aquarium is a disgrace you're in a city where there are thousands of variety of fish and only have a showcase! Penguins them is very sick and the State of cleanliness of the poor place bad people in information wave is inexplicable, they work in an aquarium or segba agreement? I do not recommend spending so much money on this attraction.

  • 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.
  • The show of sea lions and dolphins was very nice also. It shows the work of coaches. I was delighted to see so many little ones, I'd love to be free... The staff was very good except for the blonde girl in reports, it would be good that is a little more pleasant. Others very well, to meet and make something different is cute

  • Few species to be the best aquarium so popular in the dolphin show.

  • Beautiful Aquarium. The q was opened. Closed attractions. You can almost touch the penguins by hand. A guided tour would be ideal. We didn't see the option. A nice view of the ocean. The food area is pretty but care is terrible. They should reassess that people have to cater to the public.
