A nice rest from the lively Qjuinta Avenida is this beautiful aquarium in different levels under ground. Clean and calm, nice size. more »
This was fun. We went here today as a plan B, as it was too rainy to go-to a cenote. 3 levels going down. Reptiles/amphibians, then tropical fish and sharks, then the many species of clown fish, in a disco. The 2nd floor was the best. A guide was on every floor and in they greeted you at the elevators. Monitors were on every floor that had images and explanations in Spanish and English. You can take pictures, just don't use any flash. If it's too hot outside, then it's a great place to cool off. You get your picture taken at the beginning (two poses, 1 as if you're afraid of something, 1 just a regular pose) there is about 10 different backgrounds of water themes and even sharks attacking. 2 5x7" for about 8 dollars. Again, it is small, but it also has a great collection of stuffed animals up front for sale. Give it a try families!
Not a bad little aquarium if you are in Playa or trying to dodge the rain. The only disappointing part was the lack jellyfish on the jellyfish floor.
