All the placards and demonstrations are in Spanish, but the fish diversity is first class and whether or not you speak Spanish, when you're watching shows like the Sea Lions, you don't need to understand every word. HIGHLY recommend the swimming with the sea lion...More

We had a great time. Saw lots of new (to us) species. In addition to the fish in the indoor aquariums the outdoors with several crocodiles and turtles was very nice plus a large collection of birds. Plenty of space to roam and enjoy the...More

It's not a large aquarium but all the exhibits were well presented and interesting. You could probably spend more time having a look around but 45 minutes or so will do it if it's not crowded. Entrance fee is 115 Pesos which is not too...More

I love this aquarium. The sea lion show is amazing. There are also many non-aquatic animals on-site. Feed the bords in the aviary for a unique expeeience.

By the reviews, I was expecting more of an aquarium. The shows were alright, quite short. It was okay to waste some time and easy to get to.

I went eagerly to shows on birds and sea lions--but left both because the commentary was incessant, too loud, and only in Spanish. The other exhibits are modest. But I did enjoy seeing Mexican families having a great time.

The aquaium is also a minitue zoo and has plenty of venues to keep the kids busy and happy. They have a number of "shows" throughout the day so check their schedule before you go. There is an entrance fee but it is nominal.

Very well maintain. The shows are what the park is about. There is a series that starts in the morning and one after lunch. These shows lead you thru an awesome tour of the park, seals, birds, and animals of prey. Very informational and shows...More
