We enjoyed the many tanks with both fresh- and salt-water fish. As well there are large enclosures with tropical birds in the outside areas. And there was a large tank with rays and other fish. The aquarium has some nice reptile tanks as well. Cost per adult 120 pesos - well worth it. We did not attend the shows, but... More

We decided to visit on the spur of the moment and greatly enjoyed seeing all the sea creatures as well as the bird and reptile displays. The touch tank attendant was very friendly and knowledgeable and went out of her way to let us touch many creatures. The sea lion show was worth the wait to see. Very nice grounds... More

Every year they bring the baby turtles to the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan beach for release out to sea. It is a wonderful chance to learn about their turtle program and speed the little guys on their way back home to the sea.

The diver has no air tank on and holds her breath while she's in the tank working with the sharks. Awesome! Tons of interesting animals to look... More

We visited this open air museum at the recommendation of a friend and were so glad we did. It was a very educational, hands-on, type little gem in the middle of town and not on a main street. Children love it.
