Venture deep into the great outdoors during this action-packed day trip, which makes it easy to escape the city. You’ll have personalized attention from a private guide as you cover four different stops, from the largest head of the Olmec civilization to a secluded island inhabited by a lively monkey population. You’ll also climb to the top of a stunning waterfall and learn about Mexican biodiversity in an ecological park.

We had the opportunity to take the penguin experience and the swimming with the sharks, the girl that gave us the explanation about the penguins was wonderful and the shark swimming was awesome. They are very strict about the COVID19 and the good care of the animals, totally worth it. The huge shark tank is a must.

Many animals and good sized aquarium. Crowded but also not so expensive so it’s ok. This place can be seen in 1.5 or 2 hours

We had heard this was the 3rd largest aquarium in the world, so we were excited to visit. It was honestly disappointing. The entrance is cool, but it just went downhill from there. The worst part is that there were no dolphins or dolphin show as advertised literally all over Veracruz. My kid was very disappointed. The view from the balcony is pretty nice though. We also enjoyed the shops outside of the ticket office. The gift shop inside the aquarium was lacking. We probably won't be back as it is too pricey for what they actually have.

I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Veracruz on a business trip. While we were there we were able to visit the aquarium. I wasn't expecting much as I had been to other aquariums and they all were so dirty. This aquarium was clean, well maintained and had a large variety of sea creatures to look at. I would definitely go back.

The Veracruz acuarium is definitively worth a brief visit. Exhibits are clear and clean and fish swim 3 feet from where you stand. Good signs and explanations and a great effort for ocean conservation and awareness. A couple of tiger sharks are impressive as some massive manatíes. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
