  • Good variety of species, but rather small, the more shocking it is the turtle but at the same time gives a very ugly feeling seeing her in that situation

  • Amazing perfect for guys, ride takes all eyes architecture, decoration and the beautiful giant turtle! Alligators are another show apart and with the entry you can enter the Foundation Museum. In addition, to the side there is a beautiful square.

  • It is good if you are in the city and you've got kids. It also has a nice Park on the side and opposite the serpentarium (that wasn't)

  • Ok
  • Great aquarium, it is very entertaining, especially the giant tortoise. Is a fun family activity.
  • A small, but very didactic aquarium with care and very neat environment, details as flat screens above the tanks report clearly respecting lighting that will not disturb the fish. It requires more maintenance, since some, out of service, leave you without the information. Very warm and willing staff to guide tourists. A beautiful experience for young and old in ugly days, time of half an hour travel and entry enables you to a nearby Museum.

  • Very nice Aquarium. A little small in my opinion. No I knew that had been a new giant turtle after turtle Jorge died. It is worth visiting this Aquarium to learn more about aquatic life.

  • Nice place for the children. Well care and teaching. Small but entertaining. Access is cheap.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
