The Veracruz' Aquarium is not comparable to the big and fascinating aquariums in the US, as Boston, Baltimore etc., but it's a great place, especially for children, where you can spend easily half a day.

I went to the aquarium with a family from Canada who has been at least five times. The aquarium is not particularly big if you've been to others in the States. However, it loops around and uses all of its space efficiently. I enjoyed the circular room with an amphitheater in it because all the fish swam around you the... More

It is a very nice aquarium that if you have the time to visit. Is representative of some species from the zone, and some other from around the world, it will take you 2 hours unless you decide for the penguins tour that will take around 3 hours.

So overall a very good place. I'd never seen a tiger shark before or a manatee and both were here. Lots of small exhibits and a few large ones. The penguin display was pretty boring. We paid 120 Pesos for two kids to touch a dolphin. In the states that would cost you $50 probably. The map of Texas and... More
