My boyfriend and I were very excited about going to the aquarium and very disappointed when we finally got inside. Although the aquarium is very beautifully designed both inside and out, it is limited on what it has to offer as far as exhibits are concerned. The tour begins in a rainforest-style area that is very cramped. We spent most of our time trying to navigate the single-file walkways that were easily clogged with strollers. When we finally made it to the actual acquarium, we were disappointed to find that there were only about 10 to 15 relatively small ecosystems with only a few species of fish per location. The acquarium section seemed to be the only one with any information on the animals, all of which was in the touchscreens on the wall that were difficult to access with all of the people there. The other areas, like the somewhat random Mayan section, sometimes didn't have anything on the displays to explain what animal was inside or any information about them, and when there was an identifier, it tended to be a piece of laminated paper with only the name of the animal. Also, every path seemed to end in either one of the multiple cafes inside or the gift shops. For the $34 that we spent to get in, we got 30 minutes of disappointment. Compared to other acquariums, this one is a considerable let down.
