Very nice and cheap outing. Great displays of aquatic life, birds and other critters. Seals were fun to watch - show was good. But all the shows are in Spanish only. We still had a good time.

The aquarium is an excellent option to visit in Mazatlan, is very well maintained and bigger that I thought. Shows are perfectly scheduled and most of hotels sell tickets in their lobbies. Quantity and variety of fishes are OK and there are birds shows, too....More

It is a 2 hours visit. I was expecting way more fishes, the aquarium area is kind of small. I didn't went to the shows as they were overcrowded and the sun was too heavy. Conclusion: too much fuzz for not much.
