Took our little one to see the fish, didn't realize they also have animals! He loved it! They have seals, turtles, lots of different fish and even alligators and crocodiles!

Took the kids to this aquarium/zoo in the middle of the city. Turned out to be a great time. Kids enjoyed the shows the staff put on with the animals. If you're in Mazatlán with children, it's a must see.

It's something to do. Very old school. Mexico has a way to go as far as enclosures go. After North American shows this one is lacking but as time goes by I'm sure Mexico will improve.

The Aquarium is set up for an easy walk through all the exhibits. English tours are provided as well. The animals have little performances that are very interesting to see whether child or adult.

Had neat history areas and got to see some neat animals. Unfortunately we came on a day where everything was super quiet because of some events that was happening later. We did get to see any shows which sucked, but our tour guide took us on a personal tour. The highlight was that we got to release baby turtles after... More

Received free tickets from El Cid resort. Would have been disappointed if I had purchased myself. Plenty of sea life but all in quite small tanks. Highlight for our family were the parrots in the walk through cage as they kept swooping down at us as we stood in cage. Ostrich was missing an eye and the deers were in... More

We spent a full morning here looking at the aquarium then took in all 4 shows including the sea lion show which was a favourite! We also walked through the wildlife exhibits. I would recommend packing a light lunch if u plan to spend part of a day as there isn't any lunch for purchasing in the facility.

The aquarium is small and not all that special. There is an entertaining little zoo associated with the property with lots of birds and a few crocs. The best part was the hugely entertaining sea lion show. It's worth a visit but don't expect Seaworld!
