  • It is a nice place, shame that too much people entering high season, the number of people is exacerbante and aggressive with the ecosystem. Therefore I recommend entering the Aquarium and not let yourself go to the caretaje that might be more aggressive...

  • Located in the Rosario Islands approximately 1 hour from Cartagena is a ride that's worth doing, first by the beauty of the color of the sea and then to meet the animals of this great aquarium. There is a small proportion of animals in aquariums, but most animals are on the outside of the Aquarium, surrounded by sea water. For me, the great attractions were the submission and nutriton sharks and dolphin show, where the audience is very close to the show. What isn't worth it was the transfer of Cartagena to the Rosary, made with launch, we lost a lot of time, because the launch was delayed at the start (I broke down and had to wait another reach), then broke at sea, drifted up the engine to solve function again. Outside this small detail, the ride was good.
