Located, strangely enough, in a working-class residential neighborhood, the São Paulo Aquarium is always a hit with the kids. The self-proclaimed largest aquarium in Latin America contains more than 300 species of marine life. Daily 9am-6pm

I would imagine that small children that have never seen an aquarium would enjoy a few hours there. It is laid out well, but not much variety. Price is right.

Being there between a long flight connection at Guarulhos. Very small in comparison with others around the world but it is a good visit in Sao Paulo if you like aquariums. The entrance tickets are a little bit expensive. Food just ok, not very good.
