It was kind of depressing, animals could use more maintainence. Enclosures were a little small and out dated. We are animal lovers and just was not for us

I really loved this place, it has a wide variety of animals and not only sea animals. You should definitely go to this place if you trip to Mazatlan

My husband and I visited the Aquarium as we are both from seaside towns and have memories of similar attractions in other towns, including Victoria. We spent several hours there, and, aside from the welcome respite from the heat, we enjoyed the undersea sites, as well as the parrot and sea lion shows. Mind you, they were in Spanish, but... More

A little boring, not much to do. The service is really bad. The girls at the entrance cant even help you to put the bracelet. They are too busy talking to each other to help. The shows are very boring too.

This is truly a hidden gem of Mazatlan. Fun, easy to find and presented well. The scheduled shows with the sea lions is a not-to-miss feature for either adults or children. An adjoining zoo area only makes the visit more interesting.

During our recent trip to Mazatlan, one of the attractions we visited was the aquarium. I thought we would see some fish and leave, but no! It's more of a zoo than an aquarium. There are certainly lots of fish to see, as well as skeletons of fish and many beautiful coral examples. They also show fishing equipment used many... More
