I really liked the visit to the aquarium and the museum of tomorrow. our tour guide, María, very friendly and attentive, willing to explain to us not only what is related to the excursion but also clear up all our doubts. I would add more time to be able to be in the Museum of Tomorrow, which is so interesting.

Little conservation and a lot of entertainment at the expense of the animals, a bad experience in that sense. Fish from Christmas trees inside, is it necessary?

Excellent museum! It is worth going, the aquariums have a beautiful diversity of different fish and marine species

The aquarium is very interesting. It is worth going to know the flora and aquatic fauna of that area.

Very nice place, I was fascinated by everything. Congratulations, I would recommend it anyway
