“Aquarium in Santos - Good to see small fish - bad conditions for the seals, penguins and sharks”
Feb 26, 2018
“it´s so beautiful”
At this aquarium, playful seals and scary sharks, along with many other fresh and saltwater fish and plant life, make for a fun family outing.

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!
