  • Mission:
  • We are an educational and recreational institution that supports the conservation and protection of the environment. We take pride in offering the highest quality of service, which is reflected in our exhibitions, shows and educational programs, and this is all due to a professional and interdisciplinary team.

  • History:
  • The Mazatlan Aquarium was founded upon an initiative of the Government of Sinaloa. In 1978, Governor Sr. Alfonso G. Calderon initiated a project called "Bosque de la Ciudad" which included a park, a pond to row on, an auditorium, botanical garden and an aquarium. The main objective was to give the local citizens and visiting tourists a place of recreation and where they could enjoy nature and wildlife.
    The first brick was placed in November 1978 and by September 13, 1980 the Mazatlan Aquarium opened its doors.
