    Knowing well the country and knowing the limitations that exist in entertainment in some parts, the National Aquarium exceeded my expectations, although that is not much merit because the truth is that they were quite low. Maintenance lacks and renew some information panels, but the signage is good, there are a wide variety of species and Manatee area is very good. Value for money is amazing, because it is very cheap, and has a snack bar with a nice lawn Esplanade, just in front of the sea. Another important advantage is that it has a large playground, which could be better cared for, but it is the best thing in Santo Domingo to go with children and do something different.
