The aquarium itself is shockingly small and the interactive exhibits fairly limited (unless you want to pay to swim with dolphins or, sort of, with sharks). The indoor area is very dingy and limited, but the outdoor area where you can pet the stingrays and see seastars, turtles, etc. is good. The highlight - and it makes the trip worthwhile... More

Worth a visit where you can swim with dolphins in the large pool and touch the other animals such as the stingrays and star fish. Great.

This aquarium is not too bad for the cost. It's not an extravagant and large one but its something nice to do when in the area. The dolphins are beautiful. They are quite a few different types of fish and sea life. Its great to take kids and just get away from the "resort life". Well worth the time if... More

I did the Primax with one of my friends. There was only one other person in our group so we had a lot of interaction with the dolphin. It was such an awesome opportunity! The trainer was very knowledgable and told us many interesting facts about the dolphins. I believe that they are treated very humanely and that the trainers... More

For the quality and cheesy "welcoming" drink that had no alcohol, not a good choice for dining. You can do better if you avoid the mall food.

It was inexpensive and had many interesting exhibits. A bit small but loved learning more about ocean critters!

The place is very small with few aquariums. The main attraction is the dolphins area. There are many other better places to interact with dolphins in Isla Mujeres iand Cozumel.
