Although Acuario Nacional was surprisingly informative relative to local species of sea life, it paled in comparison to aquariums in many other cities and countries around the World. However, it did seem to have captured the hearts of locals and especially of young families, so its attempt at educating the public deserves at least an average rating. By the way,... More

A largely open air facility built right along the Caribbean Sea, this aquarium is beautiful, well-maintained, and diverse!

My kids had a blast with all the sea animals to see (particularly the octopus) and the playground! And at a 50 peso (1dollar) entrance I would say it's worth it!

Was pleasantly taken aback, 1st off, very cheap, and we paid for ourselves so no school discount. Lots of different types of fish and areas that house various eco - systems. Signs are good, explaining everything... More

A beautiful attraction, a little bit far from the city center. A lot of different sea animals! beautiful garden with view of the ocean and downtown Santo Domingo. Very cheap entry fee.

It´s a really well built place and they take effort to make you welcome, they pay extra attention to children / es un sitio muy bien hecho, te hacen sentori muy bien y prestan mucha atención a los niños para explicar todo.
