  • Could have a greater variation of aquatic animals and a scenario more filled. But despite this is a legal and peaceful place to visit with the family.

  • Recommend entering only if you're with kids because everything is interesting to them. It's small and not so much so. In addition to pay 4 real to get into the Zoo still pays more real 6 to visit the Aquarium. The structure could be better.

  • We were following the GPS. However, when we arrived at the gate of the Aquarium we found that we couldn't get by him. We had q for a ride well great to enter the lobby of the Zoo. We had q buy 5 reais per person entry, plus 10 reais. The advantage of parking there is that you can go to the Aquarium by car, or take the opportunity to walk through the zoo that has several interesting animals such as rhinoceros and the hippopotamus q had just given birth, and the main attraction was your puppy. It's a good hike to get to the Aquarium. The path has a butterfly garden and you can enter to admire and photograph, after watching a short video about the life of these insects and this conservation unit. Coming will I have to pay again $6 per person to visit the Aquarium of the São Francisco River basin. The Aquarium is really beautiful and not to "assault" the fish is only allowed to shoot without flash. These values we pay on the day 20/01/2018.

  • Fish of the sao Francisco River basin. Has one of 160 cm. surubin is a walk fast but very interesting. There's a little talk before the visitation when you're explaining some of the groups in context and importance of the são Francisco River in our country and especially in the regions which are bathed for them
