  • I thought it was charismatic to watch only 3 shows. It's very commercial. They won't let you in with food and once they rip your head off. I have gone before but in this time I do not recommend it. No one guides you, you have to go around and research on your own and I'm sure that way I missed a lot of things to see

  • It is a nice walk where they teach to take care of the seas and their flora and fauna. The Aquarium was undergoing many repairs and overhauls so there were not all the attractions. The day we went there was birthdays and a contingent with almost 100 people, the food came cold and there was almost no place to sit. The entrance is expensive for what the visit was.
