The Aquarium

The second most popular attraction in the state of São Paulo, second only to the São Paulo Zoo, the Aquarium is the perfect spot for leisure, fun, culture and research, exhibiting hundreds of rare, interesting aquatic species from all over the world. There are thousands of creatures, both fresh and salt water, living in their reconstituted natural habitats, making this the most popular tourist site in Santos. Added attractions are Fraldinha, the first penguin born in captivity in Brazil, and and the sea lion, the main attraction.
