  • The truth is a small place with very little to do this neglected and it is expensive for what it offers, the truth do not recommend and definitively not recommend...

  • As the idea of learn about Mazatlan was about the Aquarium... And the truth is not of this world, is very small but for the price is right... The only thing to my point of view when fed to the sharks for management that has the guy... Very impressive as it manages the surgeon... That for my was worth the entry.

  • Awesome. Our kids had a blast (9 and 10 years old) and we did too. The water is not very chlorinated (if at all) however and both my husband and I developed mild ear aches for a few days from being flipped into the Water after some of the slides. Food was average but hot and quick. We went during the week in their first week of opening for the season so it was very quiet. Was also very clean. Cost was 170 peso per person for all day admission. Don't let the bad reviews scare you.
  • The aquarium was very fun to go to great time to spend a few hours. The shows were excellent well entertaining. Great place for kids are couples just to get away off the beach.
  • Have great interactive shows and commentate in English as well to accommodate people who don't understand Spanish, staff is very friendly and helpful
  • In this place you will have a great and funny day with your family, where you can do different activities such as watching a birds show, watch a lot of fish species and many more.
  • Not only do they have aquariums, they have birds and reptiles and some pretty fun shows. Don't expect the shows to be in English though. Still was a great way to spend the afternoon.
