Inbursa Aquarium Tours

Inbursa Aquarium (Acuario Inbursa) opened its doors in June 2014 and is not only the largest aquarium in Mexico, but one of the largest in the world. With 11,500 square feet, the aquarium houses more than 5,000 marine mammals in a multi-level complex that is mostly underground and cost a reported $19 million to complete. The nearly 230 species of animals include piranhas, sharks, turtles, jellyfish and crocodiles. 

Visitors to Inbursa enter at street level and then descend several floors underground to moody lit tanks designed to mimic the varying ocean depths. There are five fish tanks with a total volume of 1.6 million gallons of water, all brought in from the Mexican state of Veracruz, while the sand was brought in from Florida. 

Exhibits are themed and based on various ecosystems and ocean depths. The lowest level has brightly colored fish swimming with rays and sharks, while the Sunken Ship exhibit contains black tip sharks that circle the structure’s giant concrete pillars. One of the more creative exhibits is the Jellyfish Labyrinth, with its backlit gallery that makes the jellyfish look like they are pulsating to music. Be sure to check out the cool glass tunnel where you can stop for a selfie with a manta ray. 

There are plans for expansion and additional exhibits, including one with penguins. Don’t skip the already open educational exhibits: Ice Land, Coral Kingdom, Forest of the Kelps, Black Mangrove, Calypso Beach, the Lost Waterfall, Touch Pool and Sea Bed.
