Every great city needs an aquarium and Cancún opened its own aquarium on August 6, 2000. It was the past President, Ernesto Zedillo, a well known diving fan, who motivated a group of Mexican businessmen to open a space, in the major tourism destination in Mexico, to create awareness about preservation of marine world and facilitate non-divers to meet some part of it.
One of the characteristics peculiar to this aquarium is its interactive part, because at its facilities it is possible to touch several marine species such as stingrays, echinoderms such as starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. It is important to the organization that visitors supplement their sensory experience with touching these animals because they are made aware of other forms of life that exist on this planet, especially those that are not available every day. This contact promotes an emotional and intellectual bond with these species, which moves the visitor to commit to the care and preservation of the oceans.
The Interactive Aquarium has 13 tanks with a total volume of 105 thousand liters, in addition to a majestic fish tank of 763 thousand liters of salt water that is home of 5 species of sharks. Through the exhibition of these organisms the Interactive Cancun Interactive Aquarium promotes understanding of the role that they play in the marine ecosystem and that due to the false representations made of sharks in the mass media, where they have been given the role of “sea villains”- they have been hunted indiscriminately, affecting their populations.
Another thing that makes the Cancun Interactive Aquarium, is the possibility of touching and knowing dolphins directly, sea mammals which have fascinated human kind for ages and that here it is possible not only to admire them but to interact with them guided by passionate specialists in animal care who take care of every need of the dolphins and lead visitors to a unique life experience.
In June 2014, the Cancun Interactive Aquarium joined the Delphinus family, a pioneer in promoting the interaction of dolphins and humans in the Mexican Caribbean, with which it inherits the principles of social responsibility that have distinguished the 25-year career of Delphinus
