We got to touch the stingrays,star fish, sea cucumbers and few other animals etc on our second visit my daughters did the dolphin swim. The shark tank was very... More

Went to the mall area to shop with the family and after seeing the Aquarium decided to check it out. Cost was like 14$ per perps they have other programs like dolphin swim and shark swim. Range from 30$ to 159$. I want to say this is for smaller kids and adults, not much to see as for being a... More

We popped into the hotel district out of curiosity on our last day and stopped at the interactive aquarium. Several of the tanks in the main display area are mislabeled (as a diver, I have enough basic marine bio knowledge to recognize it, but I'm not sure your kids will.) I also found it hilarious that the first open-air tank... More

We took the children here for some lunch while visiting the plaza. It is a nice place & very well kept. All the smaller tanks are very interesting which was enjoyed by all 3 children. The man in the tank of water that talks to you on your way in is quite entertaining. You can touch the stingrays & hold... More

It's a pretty small place.. small pool for the poor dolphins that look trapped and so depressed aswell as the sealions also accepts a lot of people at the same time to touch or use dolphines as surfboards.. this is so sad

The aquariums are fine but the enclosures for the larger marine life are too small. It's heart breaking.

The aquarium is nice but very small. The $14 admission is not worth the visit at all. They have you pay the admission fee if your only watching someone else swim with the dolphins again not worth the money,

While visiting Cancun we took a morning to visit the interactive aquarium. The kids really enjoyed it. They were able to touch sting rays, star fish, sea cucumbers, etc. They have a dolphin encounter, but we didn't do it this time. The aquarium is in the middle of the hotel zone at La Isla mall.
