  • Good for visiting with children several species of fish of various sizes, we visited on the same day of the zoo, because the visit takes about 30 minutes.

  • One of the most beautiful aquariums with beautiful specimens of our rivers, from our ecosystem. Goldilocks, Pacus, Matrinxans. It charges an additional fee to the entrance to the zoo, but it was worth it for conservation. Do not expect marine specimens.
