This is a very small aquarium but we enjoyed it immensely. We visited this aquarium with our 2 year old who really enjoyed it. They have two large rooms with aquarium tanks and an outside area where they offer "Swimming with the Dolphins." The dolphin part is extra but you can view them for free from an elevated walkway. The... More

We visited the aquarium while at the La Isla shopping mall. It was small compared to the aquarium we are used to at home in Boston, but we enjoyed it. The touch tanks, where we could "pet" stingrays and starfish, was the highlight for our 5 year old "sea creature enthusiast!" We could see the Sharks swimming above us, but... More

The experience is cool. The cost for two was 180 dollars for 1 hour. You spend 45 min in the water, approximately 12 min each interaction. 15 min before you start with so do and don't which is gently added in to swim swallowing up more time. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable, polite and loved the dolphins very deeply. I... More

We attended the aquarium while on vacation in Cancun this summer. The aquarium is nice but kind of small I would recommend for very small children.

My 1 year old toddler loved it. She pet a nice cushion star and didn't get enough so she went back over and over again to pet it until I dragged her to dolphins show area . She had fun watching at dolphins jumping and swimming. At the end she grabbed a pink dolphin from the gift show and had... More

We spent an enjoyable hour here when visiting the shops in Cancun. We did not participate in the Dolphin activity as were planning to do this later in the holiday at another venue. There were some tanks with interesting features and my children enjoyed touching the rays and starfish, we were able to see the dolphins swimming in their pools.... More

This is a small, not terribly interesting aquarium, but it is located very conveniently in the La Isla shopping area. The dolphin show was pretty good and I'd recommend it on that basis alone.
