  • Ashamed of how the Government is so emaciated and finish the Aquarium. The dolphin show was pretty funny and I recommend it. The rest of the place leaves a lot to be desired. If you are using the Bus-tour, you can stop there and take a walk around the place. You won't be surprised, but you can spend a day entertaining on something different.

  • In the Aquarium already there isn't much to show and the price is a little high. The shows have lost much quality, dynamism and action.

  • 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! 👎🏼
  • Great place for kids.
  • Kids loved it.
  • 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
