A display of aquariums full of all sorts of underwater fauna and flora, of both the saltwater and seawater variety, along with shows performed by trained sea lions, dolphins and birds. There are also green play areas for the children, all part of the Aragón Forest Infant Co-existance Centre. Admission costs Between 18 and 20 pesos, depending on what elements of the aquatic world people wish to visit.
After we found the place inside a huge park with no indicating signs (a nice man helped us), discovered, the price has gone up from what yahoo displays.
There is a bird show, a dolphin show which is probably the only thing worth paying for but as a fish lover I wanted to see the aquarium. The tanks were mostly 40 gallons, clean and fish were cool but it was nothing you could not see in any large petstore in the U.S. for free! About the same size too. There was a huge tank with large cichlid and a huge tank with sea turtles. The aquarium has common freshwater and common seawater fish you can see anywhere.
The nice thing is you can choose which package, like only dolphin show, only bird show, both or other. I cannot comment on the dolphin show nor the birds since I did not care to see them. The place was not very busy nor was it empty.
What made this trip(to this area) worth it was the park and a positive disposition.
