Although it does not compare to aquariums in the USA, this small aquarium is a fun stop for kids. It has sharks you can touch, sting rays you can touch, 3 penguins and some cool selection of fish.

not the best but very well organised and cozy place to visit, they permit you to take pictures and enjoy it freely or with a guide who is already included into price

This is not a big aquarium so there aren't lots of different things to see in it. The nice about it is that you can put your arm inside a big tank of water and touch/take pictures with a shark. The entrance ticket is a little expensive for what if offers.

We went to the Natal Aquarium during our dune buggy ride up to Genipabu. It is a small Aquarium, but having a guide go through everything was a huge bonus. He spoke English well, which is something you don't see in Natal. Got to touch a shark. Very cool for the kids.

Nothing fancy, but you can see some interesting attractions, like the large pirarucu fishes tank. You you are going to the North, may stop by, but it is not worth a visit for itself.

Modest but enchanting and well kept aquarium, with a very good representation of local marine fauna. There are kind and competent guides that attend you and explain everything you wonder about (you may give them a tip afterwards). You can touch a shark and have a look at turtles, iguanas and snakes as well. A nice place to go.

Good place to go if you´re travelling with kids. But it´s sad to see so many sharks inside such a small aquarium! And pay attention to the size of the sea horses cubs!
