The aquarium is locate in La Isla Shopping Center which was heavily promoted when we were walking at the mall. While at the shopping center we were caught in the rain so we decided to go to the aquarium to hide from the rain. Although the cost of admission is about $14; I don't recommend that you attend this attraction.... More

Since I have a toddler that just turned 3, I was looking for something she would enjoy that was age appropriate. I wasn't sure she would be tall enough to swim with dolphins or be afraid so I purposely didn't plan that activity. That said, I thought an interactive aquarium would be her speed. She did enjoy it, but trust... More

Really just a single room with a few number of fish and a shark tank. Outside the interaction is limited to petting stingrays and starfish. Too expensive for the 20 minutes you spend inside. Aquarium at Xcaret much better and included in the price. If you stay for the dolphin show, maybe worth it but still only one presentation a... More

We visited the interactive aquarium on our honeymoon!!! It is not very big inside with a few tanks etc. the chance to touch sting rays and starfish etc though was great! I imagine if you swim with the dolphins here it would be mega though!

The Dolphins Ride was good but people are rude. they have bad english. The Dolphins trainer was a rude girl. She doesn't know how to explain instructions to people. Very poor English. Watch your money and belongings! if you forget something you can say bye bye. Many tourists were complaining about the fact that they lost phones and cameras inside... More

This "aquarium" was very small, you'd see more fish at a pet store. There are a few sharks, and a couple of stingrays but the "tour" is over in like 10 minutes once you take photos and walk to their shop. Not impressed.

Went here because my wife had read about it and she wanted to check it out. We had a great time and when we went it wasn't even that crowded. It was a little over priced but it is a tourist town...
