“small but wonderful aquarium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I love visiting the Acuario Mazatlan and seeing the different animal shows--sea lion, bird, fish tank. It may be a small aquarium but it has a lot of offer, especially about the Sea of Cortez. It is one of the spots I take visitors to when they are visiting in Mazatlan.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Great shows. Large walking areas big enough for strollers. Plenty to see including reptiles, birds, deer, seals and much more.

“MEH”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

They had a lot of Birds, and smaller fish. But I wanted to see some larger ones; they also had a cage marked 'Crocodiles' and they were in fact very evidently Robotic Crocodiles. Meh. Cost around $9 and was very crowded. I'd say you could skip this.

“Worth the cost, Sea World meets aquarium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

The facility is very inexpensive compared to aquariums in the States. The staff are friendly and there are interactive shows like you would find at Sea World. Like most other things in Mazatlan, it is half indoors and half outdoors. For a small fee, you can actually swim in the shark tank.

“Great Short Day Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We have been visiting this Aquarium since 1992. My children loved it as tots and enjoyed it this year as young adults. It has grown over the years and the exhibits are quite good. The shows are entertaining and the grounds/gardens are relaxing to stroll through. It is not expensive and a great break from the beach. It is in Spanish, but we all did understand what was going on.
