  • It is worthwhile to know the place, learning the endemic fish is nice in general. Lacking a better maintenance and joy can become boring.

  • It's fun with friendly guides, punctual schedule of attractions. Rescued marine wildlife. Children enjoy this place.

  • The Aquarium is nice, one can learn many things and is a good place to be with family. Preferred to burn about 3 hours time

  • Animals are in rough shape. Dont support.
  • It's a bad place, you'll pay many mone and it's little time inside, just one round and this round time is 15 minutes
  • 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

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.
