Mexican magnate Carlos Slim has inaugurated a four-level, underground aquarium that is the biggest in Latin America, housing 3,000 animals belonging to 230 species. Visitors to the Inbursa Aquarium take an elevator underground to start the tour of the 400,000-gallon glass tank where colorful fish swim among sharks and manta rays. On another floor there are several types of jellyfish and a separate massive fish tank that houses piranhas, crocodiles and tiny turtles. There is also a small lagoon where visitors can touch a manta ray.
