Interactive aquarium? (7 Replies)
Arriving in Cancun tomorrow, was thinking of going to the interactive aquarium at La Isla mall just to kill the rest of the day, anyone know if it is far from the NH Krystal and is it worth going to? What do they have? Any info is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Response fromDangers|
The Krystal is just under 2 miles or around 3 KM from La Isla, perhaps the Hotel Zones largest shopping mall area on the lagoon. Easy trip in the HZ either by the much cheaper public bus transportation, or taxis.

Swimming With Dolphins (1 Replies)
Has anyone swam with the dolphins at Interactive Aquarium? I'm thinking of booking this via the 2x1 entertainment card. I could also book it for the same price at Xel-Ha (not using the 2x1 card) but that would mean 1 less hour to explore the park, and I hear there's a lot to do there.

Hi guys and girls, We will be in Temptations from the 24th October and have decieded on the Interactive Aquarium as our prefered dolphin swim place. Any tips on getting the best deal (direct with the website?) and the safest way to get there from the Temptaions resort? Cheers

Response fromChristian T|
Temptations is at Km 3, cross the street and take the bus, any bus. The Interactive Aquarium is at the back of La Isla shopping mall situated at Km 13. So you have to travel about 10 km but it will go fast. I like to do my reservations about three days in advance directly with the aquarium. You will be able to pick the day and time that is convenient to you. The ticket will also give you access to the aquarium. Thre is a passerelle right above the dolphins where you can take great pictures...More
