I really enjoyed my trip to the planetarium. The show is free, but you must have a good command of Spanish to really enjoy it. I learned so much! Thank you, Cuenca!

The planetario is free, which is nice,. Too bad it is not really a true planetarium. No light show, etc. They just showed a regular movie on part of the ceiling. The movie was only in Spanish and was several years behind on its content....More
