Acuario Nacional de Cuba is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

Acuario Nacional is the top attraction to take children to while in Havana. This revamped aquarium is a perennial family favourite, with its large tanks and dolphin shows, and has been around since the 1960s. There are also sea lions at the National Aquarium, along with many varieties of saltwater fish. Dolphin shows take place every hour from 11:00 to 21:00, and visitors will be pleased to learn that there is a restaurant onsite, should you require a bite to eat.
“Aquarium from Hell ”
Wij zijn hier na een halfuur misselijk vertrokken wegens een totaal gebrek aan hygiëne (de diarree en maandverbanden stroomden letterlijk de pot uit). daarenboven is de plek volledig verwaarloosd, is het hekwerk grotendeels versleten en kan ik de behandeling en huisvesting van de dieren jammer genoeg enkel dierenmishandeling noemen. We left here sick after half an hour because of a... More
“Horrible place! ”
We first arrived there a day that was raining, so we thought that visiting the Aquarium will be a nice idea........ohhh we were so wrong. First of all, the place is located close to Miramar, so we are speaking of the supposedly big aquarium in Habana. The entry cost is quite expensive, 10 CUC per preson, that for what they... More
“If you like animal cruelty this is your place ”
I was amazed at how many turtles they could fit into a small pond. Must be a world record! They even stapled them on top of each other to fit more!
“Wonderful idea but seriously run down by the times (and neglect) ”
The Acuario is another example of the incredible energy they had right after the revolution, with a wonderful mix of education and entertainment that must have been really new to the majority of Cubans back then ("the masses"). After 50+ years though, it is still nice to savour but only under this aspect---because in fact the tanks and biotops are... More
“Could be much more better ”
Very expensive (for Cuban citizen) to only watch a 15 min (or less) show. Only the dolphins and the sea lions show, and very very short. I enjoy every show but they are very short. I applaud the work of animal trainers and the animals, but I think the government should provide more attractions to the Aquarium. This is the... More
“Something to do ”
We visited the aquarium in Cuba. It was a little pricey per Cuban standards. $10 per adult and $7 per kid (2 and over). It cost us $51 total. The dolphin interaction is like nothing you can get in the US. That is an extra $3 per person and $52 if you want to swim with the dolphins. My wife... More
“Visit for the Dolphin Show. ”
Visit for the Dolphin Show if you are travelling with children. I am not a fan of the way dolphins are captured ( as portrayed in the documentary "The Cove." ), but that being said, enjoyed admiring their acrobatics. The rest of the aquarium is rather run down and not of much interest to foreigners.
“Old worn but full of character ”
Come on give this place a break in your reviews. It's not Orlando and maybe does not have the same standards, but I really enjoyed my visit to this place. The displays were good, the ambience was great and it was great value. Interact with real cubans and enjoy the experience
“October 2013 ”
10CUC for tourists and Cuban pesos for locals. The T1 tourist open top bus stops right outside.YOU CANNOT SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS HERE ANY MORE, ONLY AT VARADERO. Fortunately when walking around we noticed the entrance gate to the Dolphin pool was unlocked so we just walked in and had 15 minutes interacting with them. I was sorely tempted to... More
“Nice for Child ”
if you come to Habana with young children, they will apreciate this small aquarium. Otherwise, there are no real interest to visit it
