Are you in Rio de Janeiro for just a few days? Try to put in your list the Aquario! It is Rio’s latest big attraction. Located in Praça Mauá, the aquarium offers several attractions to adults and children.

Learning at the Aquario

I have visited the aquarium last weekend and one of the things I like the most was the fact that there were people teaching us a bit more about the marine life. They were very helpful indeed!

People also had the opportunity to take pictures in a not so common angles as you see below…
