Very expensive (for Cuban citizen) to only watch a 15 min (or less) show. Only the dolphins and the sea lions show, and very very short. I enjoy every show but they are very short. I applaud the work of animal trainers and the animals,...More

I was amazed at how many turtles they could fit into a small pond. Must be a world record! They even stapled them on top of each other to fit more!

We visited the aquarium in Cuba. It was a little pricey per Cuban standards. $10 per adult and $7 per kid (2 and over). It cost us $51 total. The dolphin interaction is like nothing you can get in the US. That is an extra...More
