Cancún Interactive Aquarium
The interactive aquarium, in the heart of Cancun, offers a series of participatory activities both inside and outside. Located in the famous shopping center, La Isla, the aquarium is known for its interesting activities, which set it apart from most traditional aquariums.
The Cancun Interactive Aquarium is an adventure that the whole family can enjoy, whether you want to get wet or not.
Start your visit to the Interactive Aquarium by viewing the 13 tanks on display. You will be able to see up close stingrays, eels and clown fish. Each tank is designed to replicate the natural environments of the species that live within them, and together they hold nearly 106 cubic meters (28,000 gallons) of water.
Observe fish found only in the local coral reef, such as piranha and scorpion fish, as well as those in more distant waters.
Continue through the tanks until you reach the hotspot. Here you will have a unique opportunity to interact with animals in a controlled environment.
You can feed turtles with your hand, caress a giant manta ray and receive a cheeky kiss from the aquarium sea lion. It is an excellent educational experience, with attentive staff at your disposal to answer your questions.
The Interactive Museum is known for its shark tank. Here, you will have the opportunity to enter the water where tiger sharks and bull sharks swim just a few meters away. Snorkeling gear is provided, but be sure to bring your swimsuit with you.
End your visit to the aquarium in the dolphin pool, which has an impressive view of the lagoon. Every afternoon there is a dolphin show, and even if you want you can swim with them for a small additional charge. These playful mammals will push you by the feet in the water and you will learn about how they live in nature.
The Cancun Interactive Aquarium is located in the center of the hotel zone and can be reached on foot from many hotels and resorts. Public transportation buses and taxis stop by frequently, and paid parking is available at the mall. The aquarium is open every day, and there is a small admission fee.
