A unique place if you are a sea-lover and want to know about it! You simply cannot miss it if you're visiting Santa Marta! more »
Pretty decent collection of sharks, turtles, sea fish, sea stars and local collection. They have beach cleaning days, conservation programs and feeding shows too. It's not expensive and worth the small fee to support the programs.
Loved the place, turtles are extremely beautiful to watch.
