  • It is an aquarium located in el Rodadero, of easy access and parking. The entrance is economical and tenth graders from schools made the guide with mediating techniques in hospitality and tourism. Are very professional with good knowledge. The Aquarium has various species, you should not expect too much... Mega aquarium with sharks and large fish is if great attraction. The tour lasts an hour.

  • Went on a rainy day when the kids were all beached out and it was a perfect distraction . Lots of fun stuff to do and the guides were excited to practice their English.  more »

  • For those of us from Europe or USA this is a pretty average tourist attraction at best. It's WAY to expensive for what they provide - and it's pretty run down as well The shark feeding was a big disappointment - didn't see very much of the sharks, and they didn't feed them! Avoid thi place, and go and see some of the natural beauty around Santa Marta
  • Nice place to visit with children, great dolphins show and plenty marine animals.
  • Good aquarium
  • I loved the sharks. I went with my family, we have a young child, apparently it is not designed for children of such a young age, but we adapt and we had a great. Care for you students of the U.Tadeo, which sometimes are a little careless with information both on the deal, but it is a very important aid for them. If you have questions on the tour always there is a pilo student that you can ask something. It is a relaxed plan, if you're demanding you will not like.

Where to stay in Santa Marta

No matter where you stay in Santa Marta's historical center, you'll never be more than a few minutes' walk from the beach. The old town offers countless accommodations, ranging from energetic youth hostels to cozy, family-run inns. Look to the seafront just outside of the historical center for luxury hotels and beach resorts. For a quieter experience, stay in the nearby beach town of Taganga, just north of Santa Marta.
