|About these ratings|
The Mazatlán Aquarium is one of the best of its kind in Mexico. It boasts more than 200 species of fish spread across more than 50 tanks. Taking a look-see at this site's sea horses, sea lions, macaws and eels makes for a great activity, whether you're only in Mazatlán for a port of call afternoon or for several days.
Another bonus: Recent visitors say this aquarium should appeal to several age groups. "It is a very simple, very old, very small aquarium/zoo," writes one TripAdvisor user. "But we really enjoyed it -- they have a small tank with sharks and a shark meets diver show which thrilled my 6 year old." An IgoUgo.com traveler recalls that "my mother-in-law and I went to the acuario while my husband went fishing for the day. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was more than fish to be found here. … My favorite was the sea lion show."
The Mazatlán Aquarium, or Acuario Mazatlán, is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets cost approximately $7 USD per person. Visit the official website for more information.
