Very cool to have an aquarium in the Isla Shopping Plaza, Cancun. They have dolphins, sharks, sting rays, tropical fish, seals. Not too expensive to get in. They have a dolphin show in the evenings.

Was very interesting. My granddaughter and I swam with the dolphins. They taught us a little about the dolphins first and it was exciting but somehow the dolphins have a very calming affect on you. They push you on the bottom of your feet and make you stand up. I am not the brave type, but did it for my... More

Since we stayed at an all inclusive on our recent trip to Cancun, we needed to find some things to get us off the property. We thought this one would be a good diversion for our 7-year-old daughter. We took the bus to the mall. That part was easy. This place is small – I mean really small. There are... More

It was our first dolphin encounter. Since we have two young children we did the basic package where you stand in the water and touch and interact with the dolphins. It was an amazing experience and worth the $, especially because the price included the boat ride from Cancun and food/drinks for the day. There are two nice pools to... More

A great family show that keeps everyone interested. It's reasonably priced and paired with a day of shopping it's a nice retreat for the kids to sit and enjoy the show and also get up close and touch the sting rays! So cool.

The aquarium is located in a shopping complex. It is not a large acquarium, but it has interesting displays and exhibits. There is an outdoor area with dolphins and an indoor tank with sharks. I booked the shark encounter. It was a great experience. You enter the shark tank area and descend into the back portion of the tank. A... More

We felt this was a good value, something to do in the late afternoon before dinner with our kids. The Dolphin show was an add-on that our boys really got a kick out of too.

Not a huge place.... but well worth the money! The educational dolphin program was perfect for our 6 year old (who doesn't swim). The Sealoin was totally cool (but so very stinky!) and playing with the stingrays was quiet an experience. Loved it!
