  • Four manatees are exhibited. Interesting photo commentary that endured hardship and were transported by air, was captured in Mexico State. I realized that individuals are almost from its inception, the manatees that live longer. You can visit free of charge.

  • This visit has little interest. It is free so if visit you the Ocean Expo Park, you can make a detour. But the poor manatees do not have much space in their small pond.

  • While they are gracefully within their tanks, it seems like other reviews had mentioned that the tanks are too small. Take your time to just view them. Stops times at times
