  • Beautiful non Bill and swam the four manatees were reared in the two tanks at the Aquarium. Just dine at the first carrot, followed by lettuce was very good. Ate, especially lettuce is faced with both hands. It's a charming gesture.

  • Daily feeding times were over, enjoy a relaxing swimming in their tank. If, in the tourist rush, still watching, I want to be ranked. Went down to the layer beneath the hotel and overlooking the tank, so many tourists were around here.

  • Manatees are very lovely, but they are so poor in captivity. The space is small, and the two manatees are not happy in this environment. It only takes 10 minutes to travel.
