With three levels, the aquarium’s expansive rainforest is your first stop once you make your way inside. You’ll start on the third floor – the canopy level – and see birds in free flight, sleepy sloths and Tamarin and Saki monkeys. Once on the first level, you can’t miss Ayurami, an endangered Antillean manatee. Fun fact: Ayurami (and her entire species) have nails on their flippers!
Complete with a cenote, Mundo Maya pays tribute to one of the most important ecosystems in the world. See lizards, snakes and leaf-nosed bats along with stingrays, giant groupers and other marine creatures in the first level of this exhibit. The second level is home to Scarlet macaws, various species of hummingbirds and pelicans.
