  • The tour is very well decorated and equipped for all type of people in some areas to quite cold I understand that you for the maintenance of the species. I believe that animals should have with more space they have, in particular the habitat of the penguins I thought it was disgraceful... also saw an Otter with repetitive movements typical of caged animals. Ticket face €15 per person,... Please give more space to certain species do not deserve to suffer for our entertainment.

  • Ideal to go with children and quietly. You spend it very well and learn a lot. It is close to the Centre of Gijon and opposite is the restaurant Terra Astur highly recommended.

  • I was told that the visit was of 1, 15 h but I went through it in 30', was single and although not I ran not entertained me much. It was a little acojonada because in some Aquarium reptiles I found (I have panic) but as soon as I knew that there was I enjoyed it very much, I could not see the otters, but they have a great variety of species. My favorite: the jellyfish.
