  • We just got back from a day at the aquarium. My kids (10 &7) and I had a blast! They have a few different shows (Sea lions, dive show in a tank with sharks and fish, bird show, and another with hawks/...  more »
  • It's Not the best aquarium in Mexico, but it looks as soon as it will be. They Keep It Clean, affordable prices, excellent attention, fun and educational. It's Worth it, and more if you go with kids.

  • Even if you don't speak Spanish the shows are enjoyable. The creatures are amazing. My favorite aquarium ever! We were there for hours. Lots of snack food but nothing substantial.
  • I was generous in giving a two star rating. Our group of three adults and one four year old attended this past Wednesday. The sea lion show was the most entertaining. But even though there were quite a few gringos like us in the audience, there was very little English spoken by the narrator, although his English was excellent. After 15 minutes of mainly Spanish commentary our 4 year old granddaughter said she found it boring and we left. The fish tank is very interesting. The bird show was rather hokey. We will not be needing to fo again.
  • A nice way to spend the day with family! The attraction is well maintained and the staff are friendly!
  • A bit run down but a lovely variety of fish and the Sea Lion show was great!
  • Good for the price. The zeal show was entertaining
