  • Getting here requires traveling to the open sea for more than half an hour. The oceanarium is all well maintained... Dioramas... Gardens... Bathrooms... Well-set places. In addition, the show with dolphins and the show with the sharks are of high level. The only thing I found very expensive is the photo with the kiss to the dolphin... In the boat one is told that if one does not get the picture with the dolphin must be paid again and this is a lie. If for some reason you can't take the photo with the dolphin, you'll get the money back. In addition, entering here is optional is the tour... but if you got this far h for saving a few pesos you don't come in... one of the must-sees on the rosary islands is lost. Everything is nice... from the entrance... until the exit.

  • Surprising place, where nature and man meet in harmony. The work of the guides and experts, with trained fish, is exciting. The environmental message is collected with humility and affection. The setting is beautiful. A surprise that is appreciated.
