Get Set To Make A Splash At Mazatlán’s New Aquarium
Jul 09, 2021
When it opens its doors next year, the new Sea of Cortés Aquarium in Mazatlán will be the largest of its kind in Latin America, as well as one of the ten largest in the world. Anchoring the city’s new, 75-acre Central Park, the 300,000-square-foot aquarium is set to become a leading center of scientific research, with resources dedicated to the study of marine life and ecosystems, climate change, and ocean health.
It will also be a family-friendly wonderland, delighting and inspiring the next generation of marine biologists and oceanographers with thought-provoking exhibits and immersive shows.
Highlights of the three-story facility, which is designed to look like an ancient ruin, include massive fish and coral tanks, four interior courtyards, and 19 exhibit spaces, including one dedicated to the late Jacques Cousteau, who once called the Sea of Cortez the "world’s aquarium." Also known as the Gulf of California, the Sea of Cortez sits between the Baja California Peninsula and mainland Mexico.
Outside, indigenous plants and vines will hang from towering concrete walls, further enhancing the building’s appearance as a long-forgotten relic. "It's a place where the sea and terrestrial nature encounters architecture and the human world," explains the architect, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio. Inside, some 260 species will be on full display, including sharks, seahorses, stingrays, and sea turtles in a variety of interactive exhibit spaces.
