All reviews sea lion show bird show an aquarium fish nurse sharks mini zoo tropical birds large tank few hours spent several hours audience participation sea life great place to visit couple of hours time share seal animals
Enjoyed the live shows we saw, seals, tropical birds, birds of prey and diver. There isn't any English , even signs, so missed all the info given at the shows? The whole place needs a bit of sprucing up, nothing some fresh paint wouldn't fix!...More
The fish center inside is nice but the sea loins out side is sad the space is to small for the animals but they look will taking care for. 1hr in and we (my son and i) were ready to go. The people are friendly....More
The family came here and loved it. there are shaded area to sit. Plenty of activities to keep the little ones occupied and plenty of photo opportunities. There are only a few signs in English but that did not bother us or deter our fun....More
OK place to spend a few hours. We saw the dive and sea lion shows and my 8 year-old son swam with and fed the rays. That was the highlight of his week in Mazatlan. The heat/humidity was awful the day we went so we...More
I really enjoyed the beautiful shade trees in the park-like area of the Acuario Mazatlán. Some of the trees were identified for visitors.

We've been to Mazatlan several times, but this was the first time to the Aquarium. Our resort was in the Gold Zone, a 5 minute cab ride away. The other family that we were with wanted to go. So glad we did!! Make sure to...More

Hard to say if that is the case. They appear well fed but I witnessed some behaviour in some of the animals that would suggest they are suffering....such as pacing up and down the cage and weaving. The tiger just didn't move at all, this was the most shocking because the cage is just not big enough for a dog let alone a tiger. It's a hard one because if you do not pay to see this, the revenue dries up and then what happens to the animals? I just found it sad to see and felt that things were set out so as to show the visitor what they wanted t see and not what was good for the animal or fish....
