Visitors embark on their journey from the naturally lit upper level conservatory where Flamingos, coastal fish, reptiles, insects, and a sloth are found. Passing by above water views of major marine exhibits, visitors encounter a Maya ruin with focus exhibits. From the day-lit upper level, visitors descend to a lower “below water” viewing level where they encounter focus exhibits that include coastal communities, a blue hole exhibit, coral reef exhibit and the 400,000 Caribbean Sea exhibit.
