Marine World Aquarium Reviews
Close to the Hotel Tamaca you can find Mundo Marino and the Faculty of Marine Biology of the University Tadeo Lozano. Where a great guide showed us around the inatallations. more »
A unique place if you are a sea-lover and want to know about it! You simply cannot miss it if you're visiting Santa Marta! more »
Pretty decent collection of sharks, turtles, sea fish, sea stars and local collection. They have beach cleaning days, conservation programs and feeding shows too. It's not expensive and worth the small fee to support the programs.
Loved the place, turtles are extremely beautiful to watch.
