About Oceanario, Cartagena

Even though this won’t be among the biggest marine aquariums you’ll ever see, it certainly will be among the most unusual. That’s because the tiny aquarium is built into the sea itself. The animals on display include sharks, dolphins, turtles as the main stars, but you also have stone fish, crabs, excavator fish, and lionfish among others. The guided tour will take you from platform to platform, bring you close enough to interact with some of the animals. The guides themselves may put on a performance with the tiger sharks! Adults may not find themselves with the wildlife, but will love the setting. Kids will love it one way or another.
