  • Experience in the marine Museum was spectacular, people, the cost of entry is at least coming to potty (well could increase it and nowhere worthwhile to pay more) and is worthwhile, because it is without profit, we were in the last week of October and unfortunately they told us that they were going to close because of the short visit , little promotion and that do not have resources to sustain :'(met 2 rescued turtles, without some paticas and with the capazon bad stretch in recovery. Ojala follow open and helping the animals.

  • We did visit, after laguna de la restinga National Park and it really surprised me pleasantly, there is an aquarium with large number of marine species, pools open with turtles and sharks, fossils of whales, and a large number of marine species in the place. I recommend it!

  • It is rather distant from the Centre of Porlamar, but the journey is worth it. It has various marine species, and skeleton parts of large mammals. It is advisable to take the kids.

  • One of the site you must visit when you go to the island of Margarita, the journey is done fast but covers too much content, from Aquarius to samples of history.

  • A mandatory stop if I love you marine sciences, and spend hours touring exhibitions researching and experimenting with everything related to marine life.
