This is an exceptional acuarium I liked a lot, by the way in which they have their collection of species, a great dome suspended allows you to admire a couple of sharks, in the second part of the tour you can touch and feed some species like stingrays and in a separate area you can interact with dolphins. We really... More

Absolutely loved swimming with dolphins here! With the assistance of an Expedia travel advisor expert, Gabby Aguilar, at my resort, I chose the primax 4 package. Seamless from start to finish! I cannot recommend her enough! She booked my experience and transportation. A shuttle picked me up at my resort and took me to the aquarium to swim with the... More

There isn't a huge amount to see here, but then the cost was proportionate and I think overall, the aquarium is worth a visit. There were some nice features like a "touch pool" where you can hold starfish and pet sting rays. There is also a dolphin show you can watch and you can observe people diving (that, and the... More

It's worth it if you are going to swim with the dolphins. My girlfriend doesn't like to force animals to carry her, so we just looked at the dolphins, touch the rays and saw some fish.

At $10 dollars of person it was an inexpensive attraction. The kids enjoyed seeing the dolphins and touching the stingrays and starfish.

Grandchildren pet stingrays while they were fed. The workers were awesome and spoke very good English. The children ask a million questions and they were so sweet and took time and answered their questions. very interesting for adults too!!

We visited this place because we got free admission from our xcarate park trip. This aquarium is in the la Lisa shopping mall. It's very small, nothing special. There is dolphin show every night at 7pm. But it's too late to us. No worth to buy a ticket for a trip.

This is a well laid out aquarium with something for everyone. My friend swam with the dolphins, while I watched. She had a great time. I enjoyed looking at all the brightly colored fish, and learning about their habitats. The staff were very helpful, and the layout is very good.

This small but well kept aquarium is family friendly and the dolphins are the star of the show. Tanks are clean and livestock looks healthy BUT hardly anything is labeled correctly. If you know anything about tropical fish you will laugh at the absence of proper IDs and/or the complete lack of info on the fish they show. However, they... More

It is not the most complete, but it is a good choice. It is located in downtown Cancun and near hotels more important.
