Animal lovers will be delighted to visit one of the best aquariums in all of Mexico: the Inbursa space offers a plan full of excitement in the heart of the capital.
The interactive aquarium
The history of the aquarium began in 2014 thanks to the idea of bringing together entertainment and education. The main motivations are to make visitors feel emotions they have never experienced before while raising awareness about the plight of marine ecosystems.
This popular aquarium has one of the best qualities a space can have, it is interactive! Animals of more than 350 different species, which are difficult to find in certain parts of the country, await you. The space is divided into different sections or habitats to observe the animals up close.
The large space is composed of two aquariums, both with specific rooms such as: Oceans, Corals, Laboratory, TAP Zone (Touch, Learn and Protect), Abyssal as well as rooms in which the different temporary exhibitions are changing. It is located on Blvd Miguel de Cervantes, in front of the Jumex Museum in Mexico City.
