And in my opinion the best aquarium together with the aquarium in São Paulo. Very big and very increadible. If you go during the week you can touch manta and sea star. You can buy online ticket that is cheaper than in place.

The aquarium is quite impressive, much better than others I have visited recently (e.g. London, Hanover). The variety of fish and the main tank are great, and they also tell you about which fish are engendered, which is very informative. The only suggestion would be...More
