This is hands down the best attraction in Veracruz. The aquarium is on par with those in any major city. Exhibits are varied and well done. The aquarium has a flow that keeps people moving. There is a nice mixture of exhibits and educational experiences for kids and adults. The large tank has some impressive fish and a good number... More

We went on a Saturday so that could be why is was less enjoyable because it was very packed with people. But I wasn't to impressed, nothing stood out and we did miss the dolphin show. So maybe that wold have been cool? It was worth the 3 package deal with the Aquarium, Ripley's believe it or not museum and... More

Loved the friendly people, prices are accessible, tip: dont buy the tickets to feed the sharks ahead of time, its cheaper if you buy them while in the aquarium, your entrance is credited toward the price of the ticket to feed the sharks.

This is really an amazing engineering marvel, with a great fish selection. Very easy to arrive there with lots of options (public bus, taxi, not expensive at all). If you want to experience to be as close as you can to the Sharks, visit the tube hallway and be ready to be amazed!, 110% recommended.

I loved the aquarium. So many different species, all that I've wanted to see and know about the life in the ocean was in one place.

a must see while in Veracruz! A very complete aquarium that the whole family will enjoy visiting. We've gone quite a few times and there seems to be something new with each visit!

The Acquarium of Veracruz is very nice. There is usually a long queue at the entrance, but it is quite fast. To avoid it, be there very soon when it opens.

the Aquarium at Veracruz is a must during your visit to Veracruz, the kids enjoy the diversity of fished and sea life besides there are a couple of attractions like the delphins show and the time to feed the sharks. You will not regret your visit to the place

This was a pretty good Aquarium even my 3 year old was entertained. The dolphin show was impressive but I think they need to build tiered standing areas because it's harder to see in the back. They are about to open a penguin exhibit but it wasn't ready yet. I thought I read that they had a touch tank where... More
