“Special Place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

The Oceanario was one of our most enjoyable experience. We spent around 3 hours looking around. My kids would love to visit this place again. All directions are clear, you would know where to move next and all the information (which we found very educative) are in English and Portuguese.

“The Big Fish Tank”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

There is just something magical about watching big fish in big tanks filled with water.
The variety of species is impressive. And it always makes for a great visit, alone (reflective) or with others, can be also a very romantic experience for couples.

“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

It wasn't my first visit and, even though I knew every corner of this place, I enjoyed it like it was all new to me! I recommend you to see it, with your friends, family, boyfriend/girlfriend or alone! You'll enjoy it anyway!
