Tips for you
This aquarium has animals outside it in small cages and a good selection of fish and aquatic animals inside. There are several places inside that make you think you walked into a haunted house instead of an aquarium. They have several sea turtles, huge sting rays, and other interesting fish. We caught the feeding at the large aquarium and the kids really seemed to enjoy it. There's a huge tank that has a moving floor throughout, except it doesn't work and you have to walk. Nice feature if it worked. Overall, it's an average aquarium; fun and a nice respite from the heat outside, but way overpriced for foreigners.
