The aquarium is small but a good price to see it ($14 USD). My sister did the dolphin SPLASH encounter and it was reasonably priced. She had a lot of one-on-one time with the... read more

This is quite a small aquarium but the displays of fish very very good. The dolphin activities look like a lot of fun and it's good to be able to watch without having to participate.

For a $19 ticket per person I would expect much more to see. I've been to many aquariums 10 times bigger and better. Not so impressive. Only a rainy day choice.

It has awesome marine displays and dolphin encounter pools. Be careful when you exit the aquarium to the gift shop. You go around a bend and just as you are looking at the brightly coloured stuffed animals and fish. Smack!!! they put a thick glass door there. I never saw it coming.

Our family enjoyed the aquarium. Our kids, 6 and 10 really liked the displays and the hands on exhibits. The employees at the aquarium were very knowledgeable and friendly, and were happy to speak English or help us practice our Spanish. It is a very small aquarium, so take your time and soak in all of the displays, (in both... More

There are fortunately and unfortunately many opportunities to get to swim with Dolphins in Cancun. Fortunate, as it is not needed to book ahead much, because there are so many providers. Unfortunate, because that means that there is a lot of dolphins in captivity, and these animals deserves to roam freely. I am aware that because of people like me... More

This was a cute little aquarium that was good for my 3 and 7 year old. We went because it was across the street from our resort and located in the mall. We probably walked through the whole thing in about an hour. I thought it was be bigger than that but I guess that's why they have the other... More

An amazing experience I will never forget. Booked with an agent which picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back. Ticket allowed us to visit the aquarium, as well as swim with dolphins. Staff were very helpful, translated everything for us to understand. Throughout the event, there was a photographer taking pictures so at the end of the... More

This was truly a small, typical aquarium. They have good activities for young children, so if you just need to get out of the sun for awhile, this would be a good activity. Is rather pricey for a large group at $14 per person. With adults and a baby, we covered it in less than an hour.
