  • Purchase annual passports had been suspended since the earthquake, but resumed last month, to buy. Cheap prices, go 3 times, pays for itself. In the Aquarium and revive the herds of the famous sardine, suitable for families with children seeing. In the Park, on site sourced was shopping can be quite fun, and also on the sale of the vegetables.

  • Well worth the visit. Lots of interesting fish and lots to do for the kids. Gift shopping is pricey but lots of cute things to buy.
