Excellet day with the family, educational and instructive, I love to see my and all kids expressions when they realize what really is going on with the things they saw that day (price less). Over all it's a lot of security in and outside, excellent food, love it!

Really loved the aquarium and seeing all the families. Nice Sunday afternoon date. I went with my boyfriend and we ate street food outside before going into the aquarium.

There's a lot to see and do. My favourite part was the Physics Room, It's like a playground for all ages.

I went to both the zoo and the aquarium. I enjoyed the zoo much better than the aquarium but it was still nice to do. You got to see a lot of species that you wouldn't get to see in the states.

One of the features of this hands-on science museum is the three level aquarium. You walk down the ramp to start at level 1 which has numerous tanks of native freshwater fish. After climbing to second level you are treated to saltwater species. Between the two levels is a Two-story tank with large fish. There are also tanks of coral... More

Inside you will find a lot of live. Animals, fishes and other spices in extinction. They make a great effort to preserve those spices and the tour is relaxing.

Parque Explora is perfect for an afternoon activity. Can easily spend a few hours there, there is so much to do and see! The aquarium was quite amazing. They even have a decent sized cafeteria with many food options
