The Santos Aquarium isn't big, however is really well maintened and they have a nice selection of sea fauna. As an Oceanographer I'm really happy to see that kind of effort here in Brazil. Definitely worth the visit!

Very little and boring aquarium with a lot dirty tanks. We spend there only 20 min. But price is worth it, so it was OK to go there when it was raining outside.
