  • Close to the Hotel Tamaca you can find Mundo Marino and the Faculty of Marine Biology of the University Tadeo Lozano. Where a great guide showed us around the inatallations.

  • A fun and wonderful aquarium. They do a great job with the sea life they showcase: octopus, sea horses, shark, turtles and a nice variety of fish and anemones. It was a great way to spend the afternoon and very inexpensive. Friendly staff. I liked it much more than the aquarium in Medellin.
  • Small. Fairly cheap. The guide will walk you through the different types of fish there (Spanish only). At the end, you go outside and there are 2 pelicans. One is caged and the other walks around like he owns the place.
