Perfect rainy day activity. All ages will enjoy the aquarium, play area, and interactive science musseum. Spent most of the day. Found it to be a fun experience, with something for all ages. Elevators availible for strollers or seniors. Several floors of activities. There is a food court and easily accessable by metro.

This is an amazing place... Is like a museum but with a interactive experiences to grown and children. Is hard to explain what a good time you'll find there... So... Better know it for your own.

Great for hands-on enthusiasts, but requires Spanish to fully understand the science part. Aquarium section in both Spanish and English.

Spent the afternoon exploring the 'Parque Explora' with mi novia... It had several levels of interactive and informative exhibits. It was interesting to see the aquarium and the Paranas.and other South American endemic species. Some of the exhibits were translated in English so it was a good place to practice reading in Spanish. The Parque was heavily staffed so it... More

Don't think this is going to be a quick visit. One can spend hours here. It's fascinating. Kids and adults alike can enjoy and learn.

The aquarium is really good, with emphasis on conservation of the seas and rivers, and the fact that less attention is paid to the ocean and waterways environments than to other, equally important environmental issues. The tanks are generally of a good size for their inhabitants and contain all the corresponding corals and vegetation to match the fish and other... More

Great place to spend an afternoon. There's a lot to see so make sure you show up early since there's a lot to see and it closes like at 4pm during the week. There are many little puzzle and games. If you like aquariums there's also one you can go see, which has bunch of fishes from the amazon and... More

The Parque Xplora is an interactive theme park good for kids and adults. You'll find many attractions with learning experience with a lot of technology in every part of the park. They have a nice food court with Colombian delicatessen. The prices are good, and in front of the Xplora Park there is the metro and many taxies are to... More
