Nice attraction in Veracruz. Interesting and educational. Liked that there are medium size sharks and dolphins. I didn't like that it is a very small place for many people at the same time. I recommend purchasing the tickets online to avoid the long wait lines.
I spent a great time with my husband and our 1 year old son. The line to get tickets was huge (it was a Sunday)! but it was worth it. I have visited this place since I was a little girl, so it's a family tradition and I was eager to take my son there. It doesn't matter how many times you visit this place, there's something new every time.
