I read the reviews before going and a lot of people said "small" and "waste of money". You're in a tourist area and that's how the people here make their money. $14 isn't bad at... read more

Visited the interactive aquarium today to see and swim with the dolphins. Cotty who took us through everything we needed to know was absolutely fantastic. Had such a good time and i would highly recommend to anyone looking to swim with dolphins in Cancun in the future to visit this place, if i could do it again i 100% would.

We visited this aquarium so that my husband could swim with the Dolphins and that experience was frustrating to say the least. The Dolphins were incredible but you get very little one on one with them. They put us in a group of 10 people for a 45 min activity and when I asked that they take a photo of... More

I read the reviews before going and a lot of people said "small" and "waste of money". You're in a tourist area and that's how the people here make their money. $14 isn't bad at all for being in Cancun and the other things to do and see cost way more!

Had read reviews prior to visiting and recognised that there were differences of opinion, but we had a spare hour and decided we'd pay it a visit anyway. In short, there's not a lot to see here. They have a small number of exhibits and we'd more or less seen it all within 30 minutes. May be ok for kids... More

The aquarium was average. Steep admission for what is really there. Having been to aquariums in Australia, Canada, US, this was ok. This was included with the dolphin swim we had, so I was glad I didn't go to the extra expense. Btw,,,dolphin swim is great, but the big money grab was with the over priced photos that came at...

From the moment you walk in you can tell that they care for there aquarium. It is nice and clean and very well kept. It's a little on the smaller side but it still has a good amount to see in there. I really enjoyed the little notes informing us about there habitats. It's cheap also for general admission($14us). A... More

Small, but very well done. They are also working to protect the environment. I really liked their explanation about the dolphins in their care.
