The tour boats to Islas del Rosario stops at Isla de San Martin de Pajarales where there is an aquarium. I was the only one from my boat who visited the aquarium, but there were many other boats there and lots of visitors. We had to go in a group with a guide. In the big pools of the aquarium there are dolphins, sharks, turtles and rays. There are also a few small aquariums with small fish and there is a crocodile. They had a dolphin show and as this was the first time I saw one I absolutely think I made the right decision to visit the aquarium (and not go snorkelling, or just wait outside the aquarium as some other tourists did.). By the entrance there are snacks and a few souvenirs for sale.
Admission to the aquarium was 15 000 pesos (August 2008).
