Acuario Nacional De Cuba - Review

Started in 1960, the Acuario Nacional De Cuba serves as the national aquarium of Cuba. Its main aim is to preserve the marine creatures found in the waters near Cuba. They started with just 13 fish tanks and slowly gained popularity as new species of animals began to find their way into the aquarium. The organisation has also set up an active team that works towards the education of citizens to protect the marine ecosystems. For this, the aquarium undertakes plenty of research for preserving marine biodiversity. Besides, there are plenty of other fun and interactive programs that bring visitors closer to the life beneath water.

  • Not too many exhibits. You must definitely see the dolphin show to get your money's worth.

  • Where else can you see a dolphin show (included in the price) for 10 CUC ($15 CDN)? So, go for the dolphin show (kids will love it), but don't expect anything else. The rest of the aquarium is a disaster of filth and crumbling concrete. There are probably more stray cats wandering around than there are fish. At the time of visit, the restaurant was closed. Most of the cement ponds were empty. There is no interpretive material in English. A large poster of the "commandante en jefe" promises a "brilliant future" for the aquarium, but they haven't achieved it yet. Among the exhibits, the only worth seeing are the ponds with sea turtles. Some of the turtles are quite large, but the ponds are very dirty. There are about 20 very small and uninteresting fish tanks. No sharks, no crocodiles. Two sea lions. If you look down from the sea lookout railing, you will see a shelf of Paleozoic rock stratum immediately beneath you embedded with hundreds of very large trilobite fossils (most about 4 inches long). This is very cool.

  • Many dead fish in tanks. Larger animals had very little space. As an adult i find this place very sad. The kids liked it though.

  • Run down and worst of all tiny environments for the animals, cuban jails sound better. Definitely not the way I want to see sea life! 👎🏼
