  • Aquarium is a little away from the center of La Habana but it is totally worth get there. There are giant tortoises, variety of fish in aquariums, sea lions, dolphins and they have a restaurant under level, which has a whole wall overlooking an aquarium where are dolphins. So they eat with them. They also have water shows with dolphins and sea lions at different times of the day, with good seats for what is seen from everywhere. I highly recommend the place to go with children.

  • My family and I visited the Aquarium Friday. The price overseas is 8 Cuc per person; at the time beginning some aquariums with different fish, time turtles, seals and sea lions; but with fashion will entering will be removing you the desire to keep walking; We got to see aquariums with fish displayed and they had not given account that fish dead at the bottom (photo attached); had We have bathrooms with no water, enclosed areas, in particular there are better places in cuba to visit... in particular I do not recommend it. Pretty things: the view to the dolphins from the restaurant

  • Run down and worst of all tiny environments for the animals, cuban jails sound better. Definitely not the way I want to see sea life! 👎🏼
  • Not the best, some of the tubs are something like empty, not all fishes have enough space, like seals.
  • Used to go there a lot, could be better than just the shows with dolphins and sea wolfs
  • Established in 1960. focus on research and environmental education. displays include coral & tropical species. well-known dolphinarium and popular sea lion shows. don’t miss the underwater restaurant
