It was a great experience for the kids. The turtles and sharks were their favorite animals. There was a nice little playground for the kids.

Me and a pal went here due to the reviews, don't believe the ones that says it's a great place to go. If you have little kids that don't know any better, they might like it because it has a decent sized playground apart from the animal exhibits. The tank for the manatees is tiny, many fish had fin and... More

Our family enjoyed this medium-sized aquarium. There are quite a few kinds of fish, and some interesting exhibits. There is a small entrance fee. It is open-air but mostly shaded from the sun. It has good bathrooms and a little snack shop where you can buy drinks and chips or candy.

A visti to this aquarium is cheap and a great activity for families with small children. There are many kinds of fish, eventhought that some of the tanks are empty sometimes, undergoing through some repair. There is a turtle pond, but be careful! They can bite your fingers hard, so don´t try to reach for them. There are different ponds... More

Santo Domingo National Aquarium is a good place to go, has a bit of everything. It needs more animals and some renovating but as I said it is good for kids and family to enjoy the day.

We went in the afternoon which was good because all the attractions are outdoors or under a roof but with no air conditioning. Many of the tanks are under a roof, but there are no walls and it might get hot is it is crowded. There are many species of animals and fish. It is a nice place for children.... More

If you are a nature lover and most of all if you love the wildlife at sea, you will be amazed by the collections of sea or water animals. Rare species are exposed. A rich literature is offered with every animal exposed, every coral, every plant.
