Located, strangely enough, in a working-class residential neighborhood, the São Paulo Aquarium is always a hit with the kids. The self-proclaimed largest aquarium in Latin America contains more than 300 species of marine life. Daily 9am-6pm

The aquarium is nice, but so are many others around the world. If you don't have much time in São Paulo, you can totally skip it. Plus, the entrance is quite expensive...

I would imagine that small children that have never seen an aquarium would enjoy a few hours there. It is laid out well, but not much variety. Price is right.

I love this aquarium, it had a variety of animals on display, like kangaroos, bats, penguins, marine fish. For those that need to know the food was terrible, I ordered cheese burger with fries and a soda and it was tasteless. Do yourself a favor...More

It is a very nice place to visit, with or even without kids! It is well kept, clean and well organised. Kids of all ages ( up to their 80s) would enjoy seeing so many fishes in their "natural"environment! You would get plenty of information....More
