It was a very well run & informative activity, with plenty to see & do, Dolphin show is a must see along with all the aquariums & walking through the tunnel with all the species of fish you can think of swimming around & above you.

Worth seeing. The tunnels in the aquarium are particularly awesome. Everyone should decide for themselves whether they have to see a dolphin show. Guided tours are offered for children.

A unique place. Great vegetation, the entire surroundings, a beautiful show with dolphins - you can see the incredible affection and care that dolphins have. Green, colorful, fragrant.

unique and magnificent experience. only drawback sometimes a lot of people in front of certain aquariums.
