Our friends and us took their boat out to Rosario Island, and we visited the Oceanario. Our boys (9 & 10) also did pictures with the Dolphins (50,000 pesos ~ $18), and don't expect too much for that price. The boys went in the ocean...More

Went to Rosario Island as was recommended by travel agent and to see Oceanario. Too expensive for what you get. Rosario is nothing worth seeing and I personally have seen far better aquatic displays.

Loved visiting the oceanario, the experience is really cool. Especially seeing the set up that they have, I means its literally in the middle of the ocean. The guide was so entertaining, we laughed the whole time. Its basically separated into different sections depending on...More

If you are heading out to Rosario Islands it's worth a stop at the Oceanario. I have never seen trained sharks and have been to Sea World many times. This facility isn't nearly as large or sophisticated as a place like Sea World in the...More

The hour long boat ride was well worth the wait to get to the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Rosaio Islands! The tours are set up so that your destination isnt overly crowded. There was plenty of room for a lounge chair overlooking the...More

this is the best for one reason, its interactive. On most aquarium you will see lots of animals just there on the tanks. This you go around a sea enclosure with the guide that interacts with all the animals, explains what they are, feeds them,...More

The visit short, but very nice. It's not Sea World or Shedd Aquaruim. But fun and interesting. It's in the ocean so nay sayers may be disappointed. However, we found the visit fun, interesting and would recommend. In fact, I'd go again. They do have...More

Normal and not much too see at this place. People can take pictures with own camera for 50k mil peso. The aquarium area very small and we spend like less than a hour at this place.

No, they don't. I don't remember the price of the excursion, but if you want to swim with dolphins, this is not the right place. In this area, you 'll only see dolphins and sharks. I hope this will help you. Look for... More
