Very nice

Great option in Guaruja. I took a 17y old that had a great time in the aquarium. Lots of fish and other animals in well maintained tanks.

Good option on a rainy day, with entertainment for kids outside and nice animals inside. Gift shop and cafeteria could be better.

If you are visiting Guaruja with Kids make sure to plan to visit the aquarium. Your kids will love this. Reserve some time to also visit the local artisan's market and walk by the beach across the street.

The place needs refurbish and update in some of the attractions. Some windows are cracked and one feels scary of safety.

This well kept aquarium has some interesting exhibits and is worth a visit. While not the size or magnitude of the big USA aquariums, it does reflect the water life of South America. There are descriptions of the exhibits but unfortunately, they are predominantly in Portuguese.

As we visited Brazil during the rainy season we were obliged to find interesting things to do when the heavens opened. We found Acqua Mundo an interesting acquarium, and easy to get to.

We visited the aquarium in September 2014. It cost 140 reais for our family of 4. Which converted is about $60 cnd. The aquarium was small to say the least, there were empty tanks, tanks with cracked windows and the water in most of the tanks appeared dirty. Kids enjoyed it, but it was over before it began.
